It was around a year ago that we were last in Barcelona – that time for Lee & Kate’s wedding. This time we travelled out for Carl & Suzie’s big day. As usual where flights or long distances are involved, we flew out 2 days before the wedding to allow for delays, strikes etc; however, everything went to plan and we arrived with a day in hand so we ventured out into this beautiful city on Saturday for some sight-seeing. Despite our love of all things Italian (and obvious bias), Barcelona is actually my favourite of all the cities I’ve ever visited.
If you’ve never been, plan a long weekend there at least and drop us a line to let us know you’re going – we have a few tips! Here’s a glimpse of a Saturday in July in Barcelona:
It’s a city of wonderful balconies (and umbrellas in this case!)
A huge choice of blended 100% fruit drinks for no more than €1.50 from the amazing market just off Las Ramblas
Yachts in the marina
For a city break with a difference (and for a breather from the built-up areas), take your bikini (or trunks!) and visit the beaches (or at the very least the beach cafes)
We’re playing ‘catch-up’ with the wedding processing now, having shot so many in a relatively short period and allowing for all of the travel that’s been necessary. Check back tomorrow for some ‘sneak-peeks’ from Carl & Suzie’s wedding in a quite unique venue! -AndyGoogle+
