W hat To See & Do

With a population of 46 million, Spain and it's urban areas extend to numerous neighbouring municipalities within the Province of Barcelona and is home to around 1.6  million people! 
I traveled to Spain from London and spent a few days there before traveling to Portugal to meet up with some of my family.
​This was one of most favourite hostels I have ever stayed at in Europe! It was super central, right beside an underground station, 5 minutes from the beach, overall perfect location.
They had activities and pub crawls every evening, soo so much and great way to meet other solo travelers.

The airport is a fair distance from the CBD. I took a taxi although you can use the public transit to and from the airport into the city centre. I regretted this decision as the taxi was super expensive so I would recommend taking the underground attached to the airport to make your way into the CBD.
I'm a huge seafood lover so Spain really provided the goods in that department, you'll be able to find seafood at any restaurant you go to!
Some of the must see sights in Barcelona are :
- Park Guell : amazing spanish architecture and great for photos!
- Sagarda Familia :  ​one of the lagrest buildings that will ever stand infront of you. It's architecture is absolutley amazing. - Gothic Quarter,
- Casa Mila, Parc de la Citudella
- Barcelona Cathedral
- Espigo de Bac de Roda
And for a good night out visit Opium Night Club. they played the best music!

I met a young lad from
India at the hostel that I was staying at in Barcelona. A year and a half later when I traveled to India  I was able to meet up with him! These are the moments I live for and what traveling is all about!

Sunny with a chance of rain for Barcelona! Glad I packed both my bikini and my umbrella, both were needed! It never reached extreme highs or lows, so it was a great temperature for walking around and enjoying all that the city had to offer. This was in the month of June. 
I did attempt a surf sesh but not going to lie, it was absolutley freezing and super salty! (Neither of my favourites). 
But overall I thought June was a great temperature to visit Barcelona! 
I have friends who have visisted over Christmas and they found themselves wearing winter jackets, but since it's such a vibrant and tropical city I found it was best to visit during summer!
