We woke bright and early on our last day in Barcelona and grabbed our rental car, Denia bound. Driving through the country side, talking, laughing, blasting music, it was beautiful. We got horribly lost for a couple of hours but, with the help of some guardian angels I imagine, we finally found the ferry that would take us to Ibiza.
Our first night there we were pretty wiped out and ended up crashing early. Th next few days were filled with exploring though! We dissevered a gorgeous restaurant right on the beach called Tulip Cafe and ate the most delicious croquets. And the day after that we hopped on a little boat that brought us Cala Basa Beach in under 30 minutes. Each night we would sit on our balcony and share a cigar as we wrote in our travel journals and wished this would never end.
Like I mentioned in the Camp Bisco post, we only had 24 hours in between coming home from the festival and heading to the airport. For the next month we’d be traveling to seven different places. Our first destination: Barcelona, Spain.
Our flight was long but after waiting in line for 45,000 hours at Bisco, I’m confident I can now endure any amount of waiting. We arrived early in the morning, so early that our hotel room wasn’t ready yet. So we dropped our bags off with the bellboy and eagerly set out to discover what wonders awaited us in the city.
We quickly realized that everything in Barcelona, created in Gaudi’s brilliant eye, is stunning. From the architecture, to the streets, and all of the adorable cafes in between. We agreed this place felt like home. We popped into “Gambito,” intrigued by the sign that boasted a breakfast buffet for only 6 euro, and the spread was outrageous. For our very first meal abroad, it was killer.
At last, our room was ready and we headed back towards our hotel. We never expected it to be so grand but our room was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. The view was breathtaking, and there was so much to do! There were two swimming pools, two restaurants, and a gorgeous garden. We showered, changed and of course explored more of the city, but later that night we couldn’t help but get excited just to go back to the hotel for dinner! (Which was incredible.) A complete dream come true.
