A few weeks ago Alex and I went on a weekend getaway to Spain. We actually took a bus, which in the beginning seemed like a great idea. Neither of us had to drive and we didn’t have to worry about our hotel…but we traded that for an un-air conditioned 13 hour bus ride and extremely swollen ankles. Once we were there though, everything was pretty darn amazing.
My favorite part of travelling is always the food. Since we only had one day in Barcelona, we bought tickets to ride the Hop-On/Hop-Off bus tour. We got off on a random stop because we were starving and stumbled upon the Filburg Restaurant. We must have arrived just as they opened and had the whole place to ourselves. It really reminded me of the fancy burger pubs in D.C.
Everything we ate was amazing. Perfectly seasoned, super fresh and extremely flavorful.
We went to a few other restaurants in Santa Susanna. Honestly, I can’t remember any of their names. All the seafood was amazing. That’s what you get when you are right on the beach! The whole weekend was just a mix of prawns, sangria and beach water….good times 🙂
Our hotel was right on the ocean front and off the shore they had a giant bouncy castle-type obstacle course. Of course, Alex had to do it 🙂
So seeing that all bets were off for dieting, we had to try the chocolate kebab. Basically, it was a dessert version of a gyro sandwich. Totally worth feeling like a blob afterwards…and seeing Alex eat like a 2 year old.
We have started a tradition in out travels. Everywhere we go we get a piece of art from a local artist. It’s so much more interesting than a collectible spoon or snow globe, and we are supporting the creativeness of the locals.
Then there are all the random photo’s of things that I just thought were pretty or interesting….or just silly pictures of Alex!
