Barcelona Travel Diary | An Itinerary

holiday, travel, gaudi, spain, barcelona, travel blogger, holiday, europe

I tend to sporadically do a lot of weekend/short breaks here and there – for e.g. this year I’ve spent a few days skiing in France, some time exploring Budapest, and a weekend in Amsterdam. But when it comes to picking hot summer destinations I become a lot more indecisive – there just seems to be way more options! My boyfriend and I originally settled on a trip to Santorini, then started bouncing between Santorini and Mykonos, but somehow landed on Barcelona. Barcelona was the plan for a while – but one day I had a dream about Venice. Right – so now we were going to Venice. We got very, very close to booking Venice, we even had flights picked out, but somehow my mind wandered back to Barcelona. After all – I’ve been to Italy twice, but never Spain. I’m British – therefore Spain is the most basic b*tch holiday – so I absolutely had to wipe that off my to-do list. Barcelona it was.

My Dream Holiday Destinations…

I’ve just touched down back in London after a just under a week stay in Barcelona alongside my boyfriend. Can you believe I’m British and this is only my first time going to Spain?

I counted, and the trip marks my 13th country visited (outside of England, of course), it’s also the ~29th city I’ve visited, and a couple of these trips being taken multiple times (e.g. Paris, Amsterdam, U.S.). 13 at 22 isn’t bad (I do have a friend that has visited over 30…) – but there’s so much more to see. I’ve never been to Canada, Australia, Asia or the Caribbean – it’s safe to say I have a lot more trips to make. I would without a doubt book another trip away right on this spot, if it didn’t involve having to first look for someone to drag along with me!

Keeping in the summer spirit – I thought I would share a few of my dream holiday destinations…
