I am back with day four of my time in Barcelona! Melanie and I had a much more relaxed day to report on. In the morning we took long walk to see Plaza de Catalunya which is essentially a huge plaza with fountains and street performers.
We then made our way to the Plaza de Colón (otherwise known as Christopher Columbus who is not a good person and should not be celebrated in any way) and the pier.
We stopped at a local burger shop for some lunch and I ate probably the biggest burger of my life… in Spain of all places!
After a heavy lunch, Melanie and I were ready to chill and have our Spanish siesta on the beach. It was really nice to lay out in the sun for a while and relax. Unfortunately the beach wasn’t as calm as we had anticipated. Every few minutes a vendor would walk by asking if you wanted a mojito, a tapestry or a massage. But we made the best of it.
After some fun in the sun, Melanie and I walked back to La Rambla to view some street art. We even got to watch a demonstration and Melanie enjoyed it so much that she bought the piece the man made right in front of us! I also picked up a few more art pieces for myself.
I thought I would also include a few pictures of our Airbnb since it was so cute.
For dinner we had some pizza and salad! Buen provecho is a Spanish phrase that essentially means bon apetit in French.
Let us admire the sunset once again.
It was a relaxing day in the beautiful city.
Worry less and smile more.
