Style, Travel

date night: Catalan style

We spent our first day in Barcelona visiting the gorgeous architecture-meets-art masterpiece known as the Casa Batlló, designed by famous artist Antoni Gaudí, and trying not to fall asleep on our feet while they readied our hotel room. But when dinnertime came around (ahem, 10:30 p.m.), we couldn’t wait for our first official Spanish date night. We strolled through the Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter), stopped along La Rambla (Barcelona’s Times Square) and made our way to the culinary adventure known as Quimet i Quimet (which I told you about in Tuesday’s post: Bizarre Foods: Spanish Honeymoon). It was the perfect way to kick off what would be one of the most amazing adventures of our life together. I admit Barcelona wasn’t our favorite stop on the tour for various reasons, all the other food we ate being one of them. But I suppose that’s the result of rusty Spanish (we were practically fluent by day 14!), jet-lag and culture shock. Either way, we had some super sweets moments in one of Spain’s most beloved cities.

this forever 21 pleated skirt was a life saver during this trip. comfy enough for sightseeing and chic enough for date night.
