Barcelona and Sitges Review

Well I have been home since Tuesday but I have been so lazy and kept meaning to do a review on my holiday but just kept putting to off.

Last Friday we flew into Barcelona for a wedding in Sitges we decided to spent our first night in Barcelona and stayed in a hotel in  La Rambla sorry I cannot remember the name of the hotel it was an ok hotel clean but small and it had free wifi I woundnt stay there again we arrived so early are room wasn’t ready so we left are bags and went sightseeing we ended up in a lovely food market and had a quick look around.image

We decided to do a sight seeing bus we decided to go on the red line which cost €27 I would not recommend this to anyone they just seemed to want you to shop and we really didn’t want to shop which is a first for me we stayed on the bus till we got to the Sagrada Famila church and there was thirty minute queue and general admission is €14.80 this church which is still being built outside is one of the most craziest church I have ever seen and it’s well worth a look.imageimageimageimageimage

After the church we went for ice cream in the shop just across from the church it was amazing and we got back on our bus and went back to the hotel and finally checked in and had a sleep we wore all exhausted and than we got ready for dinner and dancing again I didn’t get the name of the restaurant but we got a taxi to the port and went for tapas it was cold and horrible we wore all still hungry and than we went back to La Rambla and went for cocktails and than to a club.

I didn’t like Barcelona I didn’t feel safe I have done Thailand, Cambodia, Sydney, America and a good bit of Europe so I have traveled but everyone kept telling us to watch our bags our hotel going into the club people I told I was going and even that night walking home men kept pulling up in there cars and stopping I just didn’t feel safe.

The next day we made are way to Sitges by train which cost us €3 it took us a about thirty minutes by train to get there and we got a taxi to our hotel which was called hotel Sitges the hotel is boutique hotel located in a residential neighbourhood  five minute walk from beautiful beach and 10 minute walk to nightlife as soon as we arrived I felt like we wore on holidays.image

Our room was perfect size the bed is big and comfy and as there was three of us they put in a fold up bed and we had a lovely balcony which I loved doing my make up on the shower was amazing I could of lived in it but there was only one mirror and that was in the bathroom so with three girls getting ready it was a bit annoying.imageimageimageimage

Sitges is a gay friendly resort so I was thinking it was going to be mad but it was full of Spanish families on holidays and there is one strip which was good fun we went to parrot bar and had amazing cocktails which are priced at €7.50 and they wore very strong but we loved it and had a great first night in Sitges.image

Sunday was the day of the wedding and we meet for the bus at four and it wasn’t to hot that day it was just perfect the wedding was held in Casa Felix this house is amazing it was like something from the hills the wedding was amazing the ceremony held in the garden was stunning the wedding planner who is Irish was amazing when the ceremony was over we wore served tapas and there was a Spanish dancer and band playing in the court yard it and than we wore taken into the pool were everything was set up for dinner we had a lovely hazelnut, pineapple, mango, goat cheese salad to start fillet steak for dinner and dessert table it was perfect.image

imageThan it was time to party free bar all night serving amazing strawberry mojitos and an amazing band playing soul music and the lead singer Sinead savage happened to be Irish and after that a DJ it was an amazing night it beautiful venue.image

On Monday we went back to Casa Felix for a BBQ and wore given a tour of the house by the bride and the house is amazing well worth a google it is stunning house I would love to live thereimageimage

imagethe BBQ again was a lovely day so relaxing everyone was either in the pool or lying around and that night we had the guitars out and wore singing around the pool

imageimageimage

later that night we ended up in parrots bar having more cocktails.imageimage

Tuesday was our last day and we finally made it to the old part of the town which is so pretty there is an old church and cannons it’s just a beautiful town and of course the day we wore leaving was the first day of the strikes in France thanks god are plane was only delayed by 2 hours.image

I had an amazing holiday and would recommend Sitges for a holiday it is a lovely town there is no mcdonalds, KFC or Burger Kings it is a relaxing holiday with amazing beaches and friendly people.
