Travel Guide: Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona Guide:
.


Before I give you my recommendations of places to go experience and check out, what I recommend most is making your own itinerary, to walk around aimlessly, get lost, and discover for yourself restaurants, monuments, and all the magnificent things that every city has to offer. A lot of these places I stumbled upon, I had used no map nor known destination and found by pure chance. Exploring this way in my opinion makes it more special to link it to your story of adventure. With that being said here is some places you could check out:
.
RESTAURANTS:
🍴 @sensigroup (the tapas one)
🍴 @karakalarestaurant (best Mediterranean)
🍴 @macchina_pastabar (quick, fresh, + delicious)
🍴 @bardelpla (authentic)
🍴 @flaxandkale (plant based)
🍴 @pizzeriadanannibcn (eat on the street)
🍴 @restaurant4gats (Picasso hung out here often)
🍴 Salt Beach club @w_barcelona
🍴 @sohohousebarcelona (members)
🍴 #elfruiterdelgotic (organic juice bar)
🍴 Santoni (vegan)

PLACES TO VISIT:

.
SPA:
💆🏼‍♀️ I stayed at @cataloniahotels and got a massage there and it was truly amazing, I fell asleep on the table like 3x. It was the perfect amount of pressure, stretching, and a scalp massage (aren’t those the best? Ugh) for 70 euros and then enjoyed the sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi
.
SHOPPING:
🛍 @vivesdelacortada (awesome crystals)
🛍 walk around Ramblas and Gracia for some cute shops
.
AG Tips:
💥 Go out dancing
💥 Stay up late
💥 Bring comfortable sneakers, my health app said I walked 20-30k steps A DAY 👟 💥 Converse with locals, meet new people
💥 Bring a journal to write, bring a book to read, + get lost in the magic of this city 💫
