I have just received the most exciting news ever.. I've won a holiday to Barcelona!!
Just as I was feeling a little bit disheartened about not having any upcoming trips abroad over the next few months, I find out that in approximately two month's time, I'll be travelling to Barcelona and staying there in a 4* hotel for three nights! Flights/transfers, spending money, a Barcelona city tour and various meals are all included in the experience and I reckon my face is about to break from smiling!
I'm really looking forward to trying out some of the traditional dishes and a few points of interest in particular. With my camera in hand, I'm super excited to have a look at 'Casa Batlló' (one of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces) and of course a trip to Barcelona wouldn't be complete without visiting the Roman Catholic church 'Sagrada Família' (another of Antoni Gaudí's works of art). I'll be travelling with a family member and we've already spent a chunk of this elapsed weekend excitably planning our Spanish schedule. We both know that there'll be a lot of shopping on the cards and we've tracked down the popular Hard Rock Cafe in advance, however I'm really hoping that we find some time to visit Palau de la Música Catalana as I've heard wonderful things about the music hall!
With all of this plotting and planning taking place, I remembered somewhere along the line that I haven't yet received the list of hotels to choose from. So, with a couple of days of waiting and daydreaming ahead of me, I thought I'd share some beautiful travel stay options available to book at Mr & Mrs Smith with you so that you can do your fair share of daydreaming too! By all means enjoy the snapshots of what's on offer via my post, but if you want to take daydreaming to a whole other level, check out their website.. for as well as showing you gorgeous boutique hotels and luxurious retreats that Barcelona has to offer, they've also put together a short introduction to what you can expect from a trip there!
The hotels featured in this post are taken from the mass of daydreaming material found on the Mr & Mrs Smith website; Ohla Hotel and El Palauet Hotel, both of which can be found in the heart of Barcelona. I hope that you've all got fabulous travels ahead of you this summer/autumn that you're busy planning and packing for.. and I'm super glad to say that thanks to this fabulous surprise, I can now join in with the excitement!
