To say that my expectations for Barcelona were high, is an understatement. – They were enormous! Everyone I know who’ve been to Barcelona has had only words of praise left for this city and I must say that it didn’t let me down.

So the truth is that I’ve been to Barcelona once before, but it was on a one-day bus trip, when I was on a youth trip to Lloret de Mar with a friend, and it really doesn’t count or do this great city justice.

This time I went with my boyfriend (and the father of our two kids), and it was just fantastic having time for each other and being able to go out to dinner at nine pm. Barcelona has so much to offer, from great food, magnificent arkitetur, vibrant nightlife, great climate, beautiful beaches and friendly people. But Barcelona is not only a great romantic getaway – it is also a great city to travel to with children! We saw playgrounds everywhere and children are more than welcome at restaurants.

This will certainly not be the last time we travel to Barcelona!
