Parc Del Laberint d'Horta

Half an hour after my brother walked through the departures gate at El Prat airport Warren walked through the arrivals gate where we were waiting (im)patiently. It was lovely seeing each other after 10 days apart but at the same time we were really sad to see Jack leave. We had a lot of fun while he was here.

I used a tip someone gave me here on the blog and we spent our first full day together walking around Parc Del Laberint d'Horta which was breathtaking and absolutely massive! There is a labyrinth made of hedges which we worked our way around and so many other beautiful things to see. 

This is another place I would absolutely recommend to see in Barcelona, if you like nature and walks. I wish I had time to visit again before I leave back to London but I know I'll have to wait until next time to see this beautiful place again.

Beach Days

The great thing about where we're staying is having the beach by us. If I lived in Barcelona I don't think I would live by the beach but it's been nice being able to walk out the house and have your feet in the sand within seconds. 

When my brother was in Barcelona we spent a lot of time hanging out at the beach in between or after  excursions in the city. Orlaith and Jack had a lot of quality time together there too while I stayed at the apartment to get work done.

It was so nice to have Jack here, he's so good with Orlaith and it was nice for them to spend such a long stretch of time together. After he left her behaviour has gone down hill a bit. We've all been spoiling her too much and lately when she doesn't get what she wants there has been a bit of moaning which, to be quite honest, drives me round the bend. Haha. We've had words and I'm trying to work the whining out of the picture.  Fingers crossed it stops soon. It's totally my fault for allowing her to be so spoiled while we were on holiday. Lesson learned!

La Paradeta Round Two


After my visit to La Paradeta last week I couldn't quite get the place out of my head, and my brother couldn't get the photos I took of the food out of his head. So we took advantage of a beautiful day in Barcelona and travelled the short distance to Sagrada Familia to visit my new favourite restaurant and see some amazing Barcelona sights.

On this visit we ordered grilled monkfish and prawns, fried silver fish and mini squid and a plate full of cockels. The food didn't disappoint one bit. Orlaith tried everything and was especially obsessed with the fried food and the prawns. She polished off the cockels for us too when we couldn't eat any more. It's always good to have a four year old about.
If you're ever in Barcelona you must eat at La Paradeta. I insist.
