  • Welcome back guys!

  • Let's continue on our journey, through Barcelona.

  • Good morning guys, it's day four

  • and we're in Barcelona

  • again...

  • ...and we are walking to our walking tour

  • that we're starting at 11 o'clock today

  • this time it's going to be a Gaudi tour

  • where we're going to go look at all the buildings that Gaudi designed

  • and he had a huge influence on this city

  • so I'm really excited to see all the architecture

  • and...yeh...we'll show you soon...

  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day

  • so as per usual

  • we went in search for something good to eat.

  • On the main street of Las Ramblas in Barcelona,

  • you will find an amazing place to have breakfast.

  • This is the La Boqueria Markets,

  • one of the most famous markets in Barcelona.

  • Here you can find fresh fruit,

  • as well as tapas,

  • sweets,

  • juices and smoothies

  • and, of course, jamon!

  • Ooooo...this is good!

  • Iberian jamon!

  • After filling up our bellies at the market,

  • we joined another free walking tour with Runner Bean tours.

  • This time it was a Gaudi tour

  • which takes you around the city of Barcelona

  • exploring all the sights

  • that Antonio Gaudi designed during his lifetime.

  • Here we see the famous Casa Batllo

  • which is situated next door to Casa Amatller, designed by Josep Puig,

  • on The Block of Discord.

  • This was our tour guide.

  • One of the best things about travel

  • is being able to meet like-minded people.

  • Look! It's the Casa Mila!

  • Also known as La Pedrera,

  • Casa Mila was based on the Casa Batllo.

  • As with all of Gaudi's designs,

  • Casa Mila has barely any straight lines.

  • No Gaudi tour is complete

  • without a visit to the famous Sagrada Familia.

  • Antonio Gaudi began his work on the Sagrada Familia in 1883

  • and to this day, it is still under construction.

  • Our tour DID NOT include entry into the Sagrada Familia,

  • but we did book tickets ahead online

  • so after a short break,

  • it was time to head inside.

  • We entered through the Nativity facade,

  • which is dedicated to the birth of Jesus Christ.

  • W: Ooooooo! Are you excited Jenny?

  • J: Yes!

  • Our tickets included entry into the Nativtiy Tower

  • of the Sagrade Familia.

  • From the towers, you can see amazing views of the city.

  • As well as up-close detail...

  • of the building itself.

  • It is rumoured that the Sagrada Familia will be finally completed in 2026.

  • 100 years after the death of Antonio Gaudi.

  • After admiring the interior of the building,

  • it was time to head back outside

  • through the passion facade

  • which is dedicated to the Passion of Christ.

  • Hopefully we can return one day, when this building is finally completed.

  • After a long day of sightseeing,

  • we went to meet up with my cousin Derek

  • and his wife Snoop.

  • They happened to be in Barcelona at the same time as us,

  • and so we decided to meet up to go have some dinner.

  • We started off the night at this amazing tapas place.

  • Look how busy it is!

  • What should we pick? Everything looks so good!

  • These salmon with Greek yoghurt and truffled honey were amazing!

  • A: Obviously fresh. Really nice yoghurt.

  • not overly blocking...just nice and smooth.

  • and then you get the sweetness of the honey

  • straight away!

  • Ok, so this is not just normal honey,

  • this is like special honey!

  • It's fantastic!

  • and then you get that nice crunch, obviously

  • to hold it all together.

  • This one is the sea urchins with sardines.

  • A: and you know why this place is so popular.

  • This place was so delicious, we couldn't stop ordering,

  • even though it was only meant to be a pre-dinner snack.

  • After tapas, Derek recommended this place for dinner.

  • We're gonna have...this...and this...and this one

  • and then we're going to get, 5 oysters!

  • W: Oh! I lost my prawn head

  • A: Oh! Oh no! We have a victim down the bottom.

  • The runaway prawn head.

  • She's gonna go fetch it.

  • A: Duck Paella, which I've never had before,

  • but it's fantastic.

  • The rice just soaks up the really juicy duck fat in it.

  • and then we got mushrooms

  • some peppers, which I thought were spicy,

  • but it's actually like capsicums back home

  • if you're Aussie.

  • Or bell peppers, if you're from America.

  • Fantastic!

  • D: Did you tell them about the ham-olive?

  • A: Oh my gosh! so, I don't eat olives...

  • BUT!

  • Spanish olives, for some reason, for me, tastes like bacon.

  • And these guys are part of the crew!

  • This is the guy who found the restaurant.

  • D: We're part of the production crew now. A: *laughs* Production crew!

  • It was also Jenny's birthday that day

  • so, what better way to celebrate, than with a glass of Sangria

  • Everyone: CHEERS!

  • Happy birthday Jenny!
