Catching the end of Summer

When I was 18 I travelled through Barcelona, and ever since then I’ve been dying to go back. So, my best friend and I did just that for a long weekend at the beginning of this month to chill out from London and catch some sunshine before the Autumn kicks in.

This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was great! We felt like we really explored the neighbourhood we stayed in – El Born- and the city in general through our hosts recommendations. El Born was full of bars, restaurants, independent clothing stores and coffee houses packed throughout narrow streets. The atmosphere was super relaxed and the people around always seemed to be having a good time.

We mostly spent our time lying on the roof terrace, walking around the city, and eating too much tapas (there’s never enough). If you ever visit El Born you should definitely grab a croissant from the Hoffman Bakery in the morning, tapas from Casa Delfin and cocktails from Cafe Del Born. There’s also not an excuse for missing out on the famous Sagrada Familia (don’t be put off by the hundreds of tourists running around outside), the second you step inside the door the organic atmosphere completely calms your mind. It is beautiful.

We travelled with hand luggage only, so my silk and linen pieces from Grana came in super handy as they’re light weight and versatile. Quality basics are the saviour when it comes to packing light!

Next stop for us is Copenhagen in October!
