A few snaps from a trip to Barcelona for my birthday..... we had so much fun exploring the city's different districts, getting lost in the old streets, finding lovely little squares to sit for coffee or a few tapas.
Our favourite areas were Gracia (where a lot of these photos were taken) with it's colourful old buildings, chic antique shops and cool cafes, and the narrow streets in the old Jewish quarter of Barri Gotic.
We hired bikes and cycled around the city's streets to the beach, where we drank fresh fruit smoothies on the sand, we found a great seafood restaurant and ordered mussels, prawns and calamari, all my favourites. Yum!
This place served the most amazing selection of teas and cakes from around the world, we sat in their plaza drinking yogi chai tea with pistachio baklava, in fact I wish I was there now listening to the bustling streets drinking tea in the sunshine...
We were staying at the beautiful The Five Rooms hotel and waking up in Barcelona on my birthday was very exciting, we visited the Picasso museum , explored La Ribera and in the evening we got dressed up and went out on the town for tapas and rioja.
