When in Barcelona

Six days in Barcelona, the city of tapas and architecture. A city I've been before two times. It's not like New York, or Amsterdam, or any other big city for that matter. It just has it's own magical touch.
I even upgraded my 'speaking Spanish' for these Barcelona days. All I can say is 'yo soy una mujer' and - ofcourse - 'una cervezza por favor', but hey, it's a start!

We left rainy Amsterdam behind on a Sunday morning and flew right were the sun was hot and the sangria was waiting.
We rented bikes and cycled around the city, discovering tiny streets and cute buildings.
Day two: beachday. Crowded beach but who cares? We're in Barca!
The weather was without doubt better than in Holland, but day 3, 4 and 5 the sun was gone. Perfect for doing cultural activitities! --> Parc Guell, the Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral, Mount Monjuic and the Olympic city, and so on.
We also went to the Human Bodies Exposition, heard of that? Very cool and informative, real bodies and all!

Tips and tricks
- A tapasrestaurant called Catalana Cerveseria, at the Carrer de Mallorca. The BEST tapas in town. That's why the wait is about 1,5 hours!
- Renting bikes at Rent a Bike Barcelona, located on the Ramblas: seriously a go! You can discover the whole city and it's cheap!
- After a beach day: Makamaka, a very cute and relaxed burgerrestaurant with the best cocktails. Located: Passeig Don Joan Borb√≥ 76. 
- La Boqueria, a big food market where you can get everything fresh! Dates, gambas, nougat, calamari, olives etc.! Very nice to just walk around and eat.
- Use Airbnb.com for finding nice and cozy apartments, most of the time it's more fun than staying at a hotel! 

So, the main thing we did was eat - if you haven't noticed. Barcelona, a city I would so recommend to go visit! You could have seen some pics on my Instagram, but here's some more!
