honeymooning - barcelona

The Monday following our wedding B and I took a very early morning flight to Toronto to catch our flight to Barcelona via Paris. All of our traveling went well and we slept lots, arriving in Barcelona at 11:00am the next day. Getting to our first hotel was insanely easy - just jumped on an AirBus and it dropped us right at the Plaza Espanya where the B Hotel is located. This was our home base for 3 days and we greatly enjoyed our suite upgrade and the rooftop pool.

The location was great and we spent a day exploring Monjuic, a cool park complex on a mountain overlooking the city. The next day we got on a Hop-on/Hop-off tour bus which took us to Gaudi's Parc Guell. I've always adored the genius of Antonio Gaudi, which is a large reason why our honeymoon brought us to his hometown. We were walking up a street and to my surprise happened upon 2 more of Gaudi's buildings, it was amazing! The next day we spent a huge chunk of time at Familia Sagrada then wandered down to Parc de la Cuitadella.

Our last 2 days were spent at Hotel Jazz and we again enjoyed our suite upgrade and roof-top pool! Our second location put us in the heart of the action, just steps from La Ramblas. This is the short version of all we experienced in Barcelona, it was so great. On Sunday morning made our way down to the Port and said goodbye to Barcelona for a week, more on that in my next post.
