Our flight leaving Malaga to Barcelona was at 8:50 morning but we arrived at the airport before 7. Since it was a domestic flight, we still had plenty of time. Oh yaaa it took some time to get thru the immigration though...we were asked to remove jackets and shoes. Annoyed by that, but alhamdulillah at least Aariz gave full coorperation. The hotel gave us a packed breakfast so we had time at waiting lodge before take off.
kesian Aariz, mummy tahu Aariz penat but, thanks sebab tunaikan impian mummy pegi Barcelona ni hihi..no sands in Barcelona alright? We'll find birds for you
Arrived in Barcelona airport at 11ish. Hungryh! No food during our Ryanair flight, continued on another 30mins journey of train before finally arrived at Barcelona Sants station (like KL Sentral). Lunched at McDonald..fish burger saja la =) ding dong.. and dah pukul 2 petang. Owh cari hotel adalah part tak suka. Our hotel supposely just 1 mile away, but the signage was rather confusing and sesat juga lah about an hour. Me, dah ber'hola2 dengan strangers. No English tau, ada juga yang baik bagi direction..in Spanish la tapi T_T. Nasib baik, hotel sebest yang dalam tripadvisor tu. Live and Dream hotel, at EURO40 per night. Boleh la, mahal la Barcelona =( But not bad sebab very close to Barcelona Sants and Sants station/estacio (the city metro/subway). For touring Barcelona, we bought T10 cards for unlimited (maximum 2 days) subway passes at EURO8.5
In case you're wondering. Because that was what I did, google cari info sebelum pegi ke satu2 tempat tu. Budget penting okeh!
energetic boy..ready to explore Barcelona!
We started Barceloning at the Las Ramblas. It was a long street about 1km with shops, kiosks and cafes side by side. We enjoyed our walk towards the end of the street. And, teringat lah cita2 lama dulu 'kalau datang Barcelona nak dengar lagu Meteor Garden2; Yo Te Amo'. Hihi. Thanks million hubby, you always makes my dreamS com true! Am still playing the song while I'm typing this entry =)
Started from Placa de Catalunya (the centre) and ended at the Columbus monument at Port Vell, the harbour (the south). I wish the walk never ends, but of coz were exhausted and hugry at the end =P

mosaic tiling by Joan Miro, hardly notice as the crowd swarming along the street
the Christopher Columbus monument, pointing at the sea
I used to adore grand scluptures/statues but not anymore. When I came to Barcelona I think they are too much. Call me old fashion but I just don't. I think it's scary..I tak sukalah patung2 ni..not good.
Anyway, we finally reached the harbour.
spot any pink? hehe I got the same boots.
Port Vell, Barcelona harbour. Banyak birds Aariz suka!
And dined in at a restaurant El Ray de la Gamba.
Please excuse some interval time for the Day2 entry because I'm juggling with my new small business and europe tour itineraries =) Will reveal to you soon
