Barcelona in 3 Days (Day 1)

_DSC9700

After a long 24 hour flight journey from Melbourne, our plane landed in El-Prat Airport (BCN) at  0655 AM. Despite the gloomy weather that greeted us on arrival, the weather turned out to be pretty promising instead.

We were picked up at the airport by a shuttle service that was book prior. After a quick, smooth check in at our hotel, we did not waste time to finally set foot on our very first city in Europe!

So here is what we did in Barcelona in three days.

Tried their Pollo Frito Burrito, which was so delicious and satisfying that I wished they served it with rice.

Even after all those treats and nibbles, our insatiable stomachs were still craving for a proper meal. We headed back to our hotel to freshen up and planned to try out a few restaurants/tapa bar that were recommended on the internet.

Our plan only lasted five doors down the road, as jet lag already kicked in pretty hard during this time.

We found ourselves sitting inside the first restaurant that we walked past earlier.

Choosing from the menu was fast and easy.

Tapas, Paella and Sangria.

All three on food choice default for our whole stay in Barcelona.

We retired early back to our hotel, to recharge for an early start to see some Gaudi architecture in the morning.

What about you? What did or what would you like to do on your first day in Barcelona?
