Day 4 in Barcelona, Spain

Hello again!

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.

One of my favorite activities I see in plazas. People will bring large sticks to blow bubbles and let children run around and pop them. They often times have a small little jar for tips.

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!

You can use the coke as a reference point

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.

Our Airbnb host described the building on the left as the “wing” building. Melanie and I still don’t know if that’s the actual name for 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.
