Our dream Destination – Barcelona, Spain

Hola amigos! Como estas? This is how we say “Hey friends, how are you?” in Spanish. I was in Barcelona, Spain, my dream destination, last week with my husband. It was one of the most amazing weeks of my life.  I was eating tapas food, moving around Las Ramblas, the most famous shopping avenue in Barcelona, and enjoying at the Camp Nou football stadium.

How far did we travel this week?

This week we had been travelling a lot. We drove from Fontainbleau to Paris Airport to catch a flight to Barcelona. Our flight took nearly 1 hour 30 minutes to reach to Barcelona. We travelled almost 50 miles from Fontainbleau to Paris and 506 miles (which is almost 815 kilometres) from Paris to Barcelona.

How far have we travelled on our journey so far?

In Barcelona, our first journey started with a taxi ride from airport to the hotel, which we booked it in advance. Finding a taxi was not difficult at all as plenty of them were available easily. During our five days journey we were sightseeing by foot, meaning that most of the time we were walking. We used the metro to get to the tourist attractions that were a little farther away from our hotel.
