Hen Weekend in Barcelona - Day 2

On Saturday morning, with some people feeling a little worse for wear than others we took the open top double decker bus tour of Barcelona. This is a great thing to do if you are short of time as the bus stops at all the main sights, there are two different routes and you can get on and off all day for 19 Euros.

Here are a few photos from the bus tour.

After the bus tour we all split off into little groups. Kirsteen, Lesley, Michelle, Ailsa and I got off in an area called Gracia, which was supposed to be bustling with lots of little restaurants and shops. Unfortunately it wasn't quite bustling, but we managed to find a few interesting little shops and we found a nice authentic place for lunch and a few glasses of vino.

Here's Lesley, Ailsa, Me and Michelle enjoying our lunch.

Gillian and Jenny also found some time for a quick refreshment.


After lunch we had a little wander around then got back on the bus to the Placa de Catalunya and fought our way through the Ramblas and back to the hotel.

That evening we gathered for some pre dinner Cava again in my room.

Here's a photo of Ailsa, Lesley, Michelle, me and Kirsteen.

That evening we had a fantastic meal at a restuarant called Daps.

As we were dining on Spanish time, the meal finished at half past midnight. The lightweights of the party went back to the hotel while Jenny, Lesley, Kirsteen, Michelle and I went off to a strange nightclub called Razamataz. Not the best one I have been to, but we had a laugh and fell into bed just before 4am.

On Sunday we all got up for our buffet breakfast, had a wander around (at least for the less tired and hungover people) and then to the airport for our flight back to Edinburgh.

I had a wonderful weekend overall, but I feel extremely unhealthy after all the cava, wine, patata bravas, calamari, crisps and chocolate, so it's back on the straight and narrow now with a bit of a detox and lots of visits to the gym.
