Sunday

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

This morning we went to the Palo Alto Market in Poblenou which is foodtruck /vintage Market they arrange the first weekend every month. We were lucky because there is usually a big line to go in but this time it took only 3 minutes 🙂 We had some nice lunch there, I had arepas with chicken and avocado and she had a hamburguer that looked really delicious! There is a lot of food trucks with everything from paella to japanese crepes, but there is also a lot of different things to buy like homemade things in wood, sunglasses, vintage clothes etc. The atmosphere is really cute with trees and today it almost felt like it was summer again 🙂 We ended our afternoon by going to the beach and just had some water at a beachbar, it was a nice Sunday 🙂

Tenerife

We were invited to a wedding in Tenerife so we had a good excuse to travel here for the weekend 🙂 The wedding was really lovely and it was fun to go to a Spanish wedding as I have never been to one before. It was a daywedding so we came at 12 and left at midnight after have been dancing all night! The food was supertasty, small apertisers and drinks in the super hot weather (was very warm all day) and then we had a three course dinner before the dance floor started. The ceremony was really beautiful and a little bit emotional 🙂

Afternoon tapas

The other day after work we went out to have something to eat and tried again those little bruschettas with brie and salmon (so yummie), and the other day we made them at home. We just bought some kind of ciabatta bread and cut in pieces and put in the oven until they got crispy, added oliveoil after, a slice of brie and salmon on the top. So easy to do at home and a perfect snack for when we have guests next time 🙂

Tapas night

Friday evening we had a tapas dinner with friends I haven’t seen in two years so it was very nice to meet again and also to meet their little new family member 🙂 We tried a nice place in passeig Sant Joan (don’t remember the name now) but it was a cozy terrace outside beside the trees and supergood tapas. We had some good wine, Amazing type of patatas bravas, squids, ham, different cheeses..it was all very yummie! The funny thing was that it has been so warm in Barcelona lately, like 36 degrees last week (so we have been living in a sauna) and on Friday was the first day it was actually “cold” and we could have a sweater 🙂 It was honestly so nice with some fresh air, I also love the summer but it has been too hot lately to even sit and have dinner or a glass of wine outside 🙂

Tibidabo

On Wednesday we drove all the way up to Tibidabo (in this crazy heat) to show them the beautiful view of Barcelona and so that the kids could have some fun in the attraction park. This was actually my first time entering the attraction park in Tibidado, (I have been there a few times before but only for the view). Me and my boyfriend went in the ferris wheel (and I’m so scared of heights, but it was fun after a while) and the view is really amazing! I think its definitely worth to go there, but maybe not when it’s superhot weather like it is now 🙂

Sunday

On Sunday we drove early to Castelldefels and spent the whole day at the beach with the family and our friends came by. For me it was probably one of the warmest days so far so I was in the water a lot to cool down, even though the sea water now actually is quite warm 🙂 We had a lovely day and had dinner at one of the beachbars, it was really good squids and patatas bravas and something I really like called baba ganoush which is like humus but with aubergine instead. I really enjoy being at the beach this year and I feel so lucky having all these beautiful places around us.

Saturday dinner

Yesterday afternoon the family arrived and will be staying with us for a week so I am really happy they are here and that I have the weekend off to spend with them 🙂 It’s always so nice to have visits and there are always so many things to do in Barcelona that you don’t know where to start. We walked down to the beach in the evening to have dinner at a beachbar and the kids could play in the sand and even swam as it was still so hot. The beachbar was pretty empty, I guess because there were two superbig festivals at this time but anyway it was a nice atmosphere and we could get a table for so many people 🙂 I really love these beachbars, they have good music and the best view.
