On my last trip to Barcelona I stayed at the Grand Hotel Central, Eurostars Grand Marina and TRYP Barcelona Aeropuerto Hotel.

Busy, Busy, Busy. This is how I describe Barcelona. There was always something to see and do in this buzzing city. I opted to view the city from aboard ‘Bus Turistic’, which visits all the major sites around the city and gave me the opportunity to jump on and off whenever I pleased. 

During the day it was all about the sites, i.e. museums, cathedrals (even with scaffolding covering it), stadiums, markets and amusement parks and at night time it was all about La Rambla, being seen and seeing all. I strolled around all night and saw stands offering local knick knacks, food, paintings, clothes and I even got my portrait done in caricature (not happy Jane, not happy). There were many restaurants to choose from and there was plenty of sangria to drink, so you can say I was happy.

Barcelona is well worth the visit but make sure to leave some space in your luggage as the shopping is very good, especially if you love Zara.
