  • Hello again!

  • Let's go on a journey together

  • to Barcelona

  • We're at Nice Airport now, where we're just going in

  • we're gonna go check in for our flight

  • so we can go to Barcelona

  • I'm so excited!

  • From Nice to Barcelona, it only takes 1 hour 20 minutes by flight.

  • When we arrived at Barcelona,

  • we caught an Aerobus from outside the airport

  • to Placa Catalunya

  • This took roughly 35 minutes

  • A: This place is beautiful in such a different way!

  • From Placa Catalunya we caught the FGC

  • to the station where our hotel was located.

  • From there it was a short 10 minute walk to our hotel.

  • I think we arrived during siesta time

  • because there weren't many people on the streets.

  • A: It's just left and then right W: Yeah

  • Here we are!

  • For our stay in Barcelona

  • we booked a triple room

  • at a place called "Hostal El Ninot"

  • This place was recently expanded

  • so, fortunately, we got to pick a room

  • on the newer side of the building.

  • One down side

  • was that our room was a bit too far from where the modem was

  • so our WI-FI wasn't very strong...

  • ...but, we got a courtyard!

  • After checking in

  • we went to join a free walking tour

  • with a local company called "Runner Bean Tours"

  • We joined the "Old City Tour"

  • which takes you around the Gothic Quarter.

  • Look how beautiful the facade on some of these buildings are.

  • Look! It's the Barcelona City Hall!

  • Welcome to Paradise!

  • At the end of this street

  • you will find the ruins of the Temple of Augustus

  • This is one of Barcelona's heritage sites.

  • Our tour eventually lead us to the Cathedral of Santa Eulalia

  • which is also known as the Barcelona Cathedral.

  • So we just finished our free walking tour with "Runner Bean Tours"

  • they're highly recommended on TripAdvisor.

  • We chose to go straight to the tour after getting off the plane

  • so we were really tired

  • and a lot of the information we couldn't really absorb it.

  • But!

  • If you're unlike us

  • and you have a bit more energy

  • it would be recommended

  • because then you learn a lot about the history...

  • After the tour, it was time to explore the city on our own.

  • For dinner, we found a place to eat pintxos.

  • A: Cheers!

  • W: How's the sangria?

  • A: Yours is like fruity light wine

  • mine is like a heavy red

  • with lemonade.

  • W: Do you want to try your pintxo

  • A: yeh, so this is a capsicum or bell pepper

  • with a sardine

  • and it's got some salmon

  • and then inside's like a coleslaw

  • and obviously on the bottom you can see the piece of bread there as well.

  • mmm...

  • it's good!

  • Pintxos are similar to tapas

  • except they are held together using cocktail sticks

  • At the end of your meal, your waiter will come around and count how many cocktail sticks are on your plate

  • and that will determine how much you pay.

  • At this particular restaurant,

  • it was 1.70 euro per pintxo

  • Here you will see a selection of cold pintxos that we picked out...

  • and here are some hot ones.

  • W: Pork loin..

  • A: Pork loin, but inside it there's this special sort of mince as well

  • W: This one was squid ink croquette

  • A: Squid ink croquette yep!

  • W: and um... A: This is codfish with cheese

  • W: I think this one's a breaded eggplant.

  • and what's this one? who ordered that one?

  • A: I think it was me...

  • W: Do you remember what it was? A: ...but I can't remember what it was.

  • all I know is it looks tasty!

  • Black pudding!

  • A: Get the M&M out of the way!

  • W: *laughing* J: Alright! Don't discriminate the M&M!

  • So, we just came out from dinner...

  • and look at the sky!

  • it's BLUE!

  • A: Looks like paint.

  • W: Like WTH how blue is this!

  • and it's night time

  • it's like a painting...

  • Time to get back home!

  • A: It's an old key!

  • W: Fail!

  • J: It's like a locket!

  • W: Fail!

  • A: But, it's not turning guys... ohhh...it's already open...

  • it's a push guys, there's no handle

  • it's like welded together.

  • Look how old school our elevator was!

  • isn't it charming?

  • We really liked how homey our hostel felt

  • walking into our side of the building

  • we had a communal living room

  • as well as a kitchen.

  • After a long day, it's time to go to bed.

  • Good night!

  • Wandering

  • Winny
