A mini break in Barcelona

This summer my parents decided that they would like the children to come and stay for a couple of days, at their house, without the parents.  Both children?  A couple of days?  Without us?  That had mini break written all over it!!  Question was - where to go?  Now I'm not sure if I've mentioned My List here before, but a couple of years ago there was an article on women turning 50 and one of the interviewee's was Carol Vorderman.  Don't get me wrong Carol Vorderman is not the sort of person I am usually inspired by but her idea of doing 50 things she has always wanted to do in her 50th year got me thinking.  So I put together a list of my own, places I wanted to visit, things I wanted to do before I die!  That kind of thing.  Well of course there will be some things on the list that I'll never get to do but it does focus your mind and keeps me on track with what I hope to achieve and do in my life.  So Barcelona was on the list, I have never been and really wanted to go, so off we went!

 Well the title of this post should really be a hommage to Gaudi!

 Or at least a hommage to La Sagrada Familia!

 Wow it was amazing
 I was totally blown away by it all but I also loved the city too.  So vibrant and cosmopolitan.
It was so lovely exploring and we walked miles, ate lots of gorgeous tapas but for me the highlight of the trip was seeing the Bicibar
We saw it in action and it was hilarious - had us giggling all weekend.  For those who haven't seen one of these before, people sit on the bike seats and peddle frantically while being served drinks and tapas - what's not to like - a moving restaurant!
