Well I had quite a bit of holiday still to take this year...the usual happened...I had a small holiday in March/April for my university friend's wedding in Florida, a couple of days adhoc, 5 days brought over from 2011, and then the year just flew by!  Is it me or is this happening every year - the "year flying bit" that is!  And I am not getting any younger, and still keen to find that special someone :)

Anyway, I decided to take an Europe break with my good ol' University Chum, and we decided upon Barcelona.  Actually, I've don't taken a Spanish holiday/break before this, and I heard a lot about Barca, but never thought about doing anything about it!  But it was absolutely amazing.

It was a short break - 8 days...which was just enough time for this City...some people say a long 3 or 4 day weekend is enough, but we didn't rush around, and took our time to see the places of interest around the City.  In fact the La Merce Festival was scheduled for 4 days during our stay - so timing was perfect.  This was a Catalonian festival - a big carnival and city event with concerts, street events and parties all across the City. 

We took in the sights of the city, saw the old Olympic Stadium, the Sagrada Famlilar (the infamous unfinished Basilica Church at the centre of the City that is immense in size and statue!).  We went to the Dali museum - also walked several times around the Gophic Quarter and enjoyed the Las Ramblas - the main street in the City Centre.  We then spent time looking for places to eat and drink and enjoy the atmosphere of the City. 

We stayed at two hostels - lived cheap, and spent more money on eating/drinking - both were relatively new hostels.  One called Bon Moustache Hostel and the other called St Christopher's Hostel - the latter being a huge hostel and part of a chain - with one even found in Brighton too! 

With relatively cheap flights, great weather (apart from the first day) and enjoyable events throughout our stay, it was certainly fun and relaxing!  Oh and the beach was absolutely amazing.  The Spanish ladies are truly hot hot hot ... and I ain't talking about the weather!
