Holiday destination 2012 revealed...

I love exploring new cities. There's nothing better than walking around aimlessly with your camera and finding secluded gems away from all the tourist traps. For ages now I've been craving some sort of holiday but with an over-whelming list of travel destinations to choose from, it was no easy feat.

I can tell you now that this year's destination will be............. BARCELONA








Excited is an understatement! The architecture is meant to be out of this world and I look forward to sampling lots of tapas and sangria :) I am going in September - so not quite yet - which leaves me plenty of time to pack and suss out what there is to see and do. I will of course be documenting everything and making a Barcelona post on my return just like I did with Paris

Have you ever been to Barcelona before?

If so, please can you suggest any quirky restaurants / cafés / bars / shops / museums and other such places for my trip? It'd be a great help, thank you! :)

  5. I absolutely love Barcelona! I went there last year for a few days and I seriously want to go back! I found a great restaurant called Tapa Tapa which we went to more them once because it was so good! The food is amazing!
    Here's a link to a post I did about it: http://www.the-daisychain.com/2011/01/barcelona.html The cocktails are pretty amazing too :) I hope you have a great time! xx
