Spain Part 2 | Barcelona Day Trip
This is the second in my 3 part series documenting my holiday in Spain. To see Part one click here.
On Monday July 15th myself and my boyfriend Denis, his step sister Louise and her boyfriend Craig decided to take the train from Salou up along the coast to visit the beautiful city of Barcelona. This was one part of my trip I had been really looking forward to due to its strong cultural and historical background.
The train journey was 1 hour and 15 minutes taking us to Sants train station, Barcelona. Here we got terribly confused because we knew we were far from the heart of the city and didn't have a clue how to get there! after a quite stressful hour trying to find out what metro to get (nobody seemed to speak English) we eventually made it to the city centre where I was immediately overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the architecture to be seen. Every single building was astounding in its own right. Even shops looked incredible.
Since we had no idea where we were or where to go we decided to take a trip on the tour bus, which brought us all around the amazing city, showing us the many attractions. Despite us all nearly dying with the heat (it was 37 degrees) we all were fascinated by the city. Here are some of the photos I took of the day.
