Another reason why it takes me a bajillion years to post photos is because I like to edit them. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like to over process photos with 20 filters, but I just feel like if I’m going to show people photos from my trip, I want the pics to do the place justice. Does that make sense?
Anyway, here are pics from a full day starting with our super fancy breakfast at Pans & Company. This fast food chain is kind of awesome – I mean, patatas bravas and serrano ham sandwich? Yes please.
Afterwards, we waddled over to take the metro to Camp Nou – the soccer, I mean, fútbol stadium. I don’t watch the sport but it was pretty intense in there. The museum was a lot more extensive than I realized; not only did they have a lot of old FC Barcelona artifacts and memorabilia, but they also had a showroom playing short films & documentaries about past games & players, they had old posters designed by Miro, A LOT OF TROPHIES, and all these interactive areas. For instance, there’s a spot where you can listen to El Cant del Barça, the FC Barcelona Anthem, in a couple dozen languages. It’s insane!
After our small excursion, we made our way back to Plaça de Catalunya in time for our tapas tour. We sampled some tapas from a handful of restaurants while strolling and seeing the sights during the walks. I expected the tour to last an hour or two but the guide did way more than I expected. Yes, she took us to restaurants and discussed the bites we were sampling but I didn’t expect her to take us from the Gothic Quarter, through Las Ramblas, into La Boqueria, and finally ending somewhere in Poble Nou! By the time we got back to our hotel, I was out cold.
Being a tourist is exhausting.
