After two days full of walking, sightseeing and shopping, Saturday dawned bright and sunny, so there was only really one option - the beach. Badalona is a mere 20 minutes on the train from the centre of Barcelona, and you can use your T-10 or metro ticket to get there. Peaceful, clean and not full of people trying to sell you mojitos, beer and club tickets every 10 seconds, Badalona is up there as one of my favourite beaches to visit around Barcelona. We sunbathed, ate tapas and watched as some pretty ominous clouds rolled in, putting an end to our tanning dreams, before heading back into the city to grab supper.
is a food truck market, and pops up in various locations across the city throughout the year. In celebration of Barcelona's Fiesta Mayor, La Mercè
, they brought a host of yummy foodie options to the Parc de la Ciutdella for a few days. Those magic words 'food trucks' were enough to tempt us, as well as the amazing word-of-mouth recommendations VanVan gets, and we headed over to try it out. A wonderland of international food greeted us, with pad thai, burgers, pizza and the one and only Rooftop Smokehouse
all taking up a post. We settled on Mexican, going for nachos and tacos, which were just perfect. If you can get to a VanVan market, go for it.
I had the best time exploring Barcelona's touristic and no so touristic sights, this weekend was definitely one which really made me fall a little bit more in love with this beautiful city. It's hard to believe as I write this that it's almost time to go home.
