Saving the best for last…can’t say enough nice things about Barcelona. If you’ve never been, I’d put it on your bucket list. It’s is a modern, clean city with all the advantages yet has so much of the old world charm in its beautifully maintained buildings and architecture.
If you haven’t really experienced tapas, this is the place to have small plates of food and make a meal of them. I have to say, the food here REALLY special – simply grilled seafood with olive oil, garlic, parsley, and a little salt for the most part, and use that treatment on all kinds of seafood, vegetables, meats.
The Boqueria food market has to be one of biggest marketplaces of separate food stalls operating under one roof selling absolutely everything imaginable. If I lived here, I would shop here everyday. I have to say, it’s hard to get me out of this place. It is so colorful, fresh, and memorizing to be in the marketplace. I know you’ll get hooked on these fresh fruit smoothies too.
