I took my husband with me and we did have to pay our own way to Dulles airport which is where the inaugural flight to Barcelona took off from. But, I was able to get tickets for both of us roundtrip for less than $300. We flew Spirit Airlines there and Frontier Airlines back.
Day 1 - pretty much all travel. Flying to DC, then to Barcelona - long day!
Day 2 - We arrived at H10 Metropolitan hotel and it is beautiful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived because we got there at about 11 in the morning so we sat by the pool and I took a much needed nap as I couldn't sleep on the plane. When we woke up from our naps we had some dinner at the restaurant next to us and then did some site seeing on foot. Below is a pic of our welcome gift and the views from our hotel.
Day 4 - Barcelona - Hop on Hop Off bus. We went to a ton of places but my favorite was Palau de la Música. We ended the day in Sarria which was awesome! Towards the end of the night my husband picked out an open mic night that he wanted to play at, unfortunately it was not in a good part of town. So we headed back to a more familiar area and had some dinner and drinks.
I just had to take a picture of this because I haven't seen a phone booth in years!
Day 5 - This day could have been better, we got a late start to the day and were headed to the beach. Unfortunately there was a fire and the bus had to be re-routed. We got off at the last stop and had no clue where we were. My husband went to reach for his phone and realized he left it on the bus! It took us about 30 minutes or so to get a cab as the area we were in was fairly quiet. Finally got back to the hotel followed by phone calls to the bus company and then to T-Mobile to wipe and cancel his account. By the time we got everything taken care of it was just about dinner time.
Day 6 - Traveled back to DC area. Spent the night at a hotel on credit card points and some dinner and slept!
Day 7 Went to the National Air and Space museum, had lunch, bought my husband a new phone and headed to the airport.
All in all it was a good trip. There were a lot of things that I wanted to do, but didn't get to do. But sometimes that's how it goes. Thank you so much Catalunya Tourism, United Airlines and H10 Metropolitan for this trip :)
