I can’t believe that two years have gone already since we got married and to celebrate this year, we have just spent a few days in Barcelona where the sun shone gloriously!
As beautiful as the city of Barcelona is, we decided to take it easy as we just had three days and so found a balance of relaxing at the roof top bar, dipping our feet in the “dipping pool” (not quite big enough for more than two strokes of swimming) and meandering through the wonderful streets taking in as much of the ambience and culture as we could.
I think it’s safe to say we all enjoy a bit of shopping, and I could really shop until I dropped in Barcelona as their fashions are so creative and different to what we see in the UK. It was however, hot hot HOT and so we didn’t stay out and about for too long, each little bit of shade was welcomed and winding through the side streets we found to be the better way of keeping cool as the tall buildings and odd little oasis of green were delightful. (spot the Join Clothes crop trousers in this pic!)
There are of course plenty of amazing buildings, crazy architecture and breathtaking sights to enjoy. I think we need a little longer next time to explore them further but for this trip, the time together to just enjoy each other and the absence of chores and to do lists was blissful.
Off camping with the children to the Isle of Wight tomorrow so I’ll see you when I’m back on air on the 6th August
