Barcelona Baby! Part Three

 Camp Nou was somewhere that Dan was really desperate to visit, and I couldn't deny him of a trip there! I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed myself…despite the weather being worse than it would have been in England (very depressing). Once we arrived, we brought our tickets and entered the Barcelona FC museum which was absolutely filled with trophies, and memorabilia from their history! This probably wasn’t my favourite part of the tour, but Dan enjoyed it so that was the main thing…

 After this, we headed out to the actual pitch. We were quite high up and it really highlighted how massive the stadium was. I have been to the Bernabeu before (Real Madrid’s stadium) but Dan has never been to one before so this was a really exciting thing for him! We were able to go into the presenters box, the away changing rooms,  pitch side and also to the tunnel where the footballers walked out. 

A couple of me posing in the stadium and in the press room! My Coat is from a Boutique in Canterbury called Angels, my top and jeans are both Top Shop.

Being the Religion geek I am, I loved the fact that there was a chapel for the footballers to pray in before heading onto the pitch. I assumed it was a chapel as Spain is a catholic country!

 We grabbed some lunch, and decided that due to the horrible weather we would get the metro back to the shopping centre, Diagonal Mar, to do some browsing. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything we liked so we headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We went out to a lovely Italian resteraunt called Trentino. It was so delicious and they staff were so friendly! We had the perfect end to another gorgeous day in Barcelona.

On our final day, we headed to Passeig de Gracia and on arrival, we realised that this was definitely one of the posh streets in the city with shops such as Michael Kors (why haven’t I won the lottery yet?), Guess and other designers. Obviously, as students, we could not afford to get anything so we indulged in more Gaudi instead! On Passeig de Gracia, there are two Gaudi buildings, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera. Unfortunately, La Pedrera was going under some construction work but we were able to have a good look at Casa Batllo which like parc Guell has a quirky style.

 We then headed to another market, although this one was a lot smaller and it was definitely more local-focused. Before flying home, we relaxed in the sunshine at a park opposite the shopping centre. Dan messed about taking photos of the ducks whilst I read my kindle (which I am totally in love with). We had one last dinner at V.I.P.S and then it was time to go to the airport and fly home.

 Barcelona was such a beautiful city and I really hope I can go there again in the future. I hope you enjoyed my posts!

                            Have you been inspired to go to this gorgeous Spanish city?
