My recent trip to Barcelona was a whirlwind. I flew for over 25 hours from Sydney to Abu Dhabi, to Amsterdam, to Barcelona. The 35+ hour transit trip left me exhausted but so excited to be back in Europe, even though my suitcase didn’t arrive with me. Still in the same wintery clothes as the epic flight I ventured out solo in to the summer heat to get back in the travelling mind frame. I wandered the streets of Barcelona from La Rambla, to Placa Reial and my favourite markets of La Boqueria. Unfortunately my jet lag hit hard and I was awake from 3am and longing for bed or falling asleep at the table from mid afternoon. I adore Barcelona and want to see much more, and eat my way through Spain as soon as I can.
