We arrived in Barcelona on Sunday by train at around 11. It took some trial and error to figure out where we were going because somebody (not me!! … Ok, ok…me) didn’t figure out directions from the station to the hostel.
But the important thing is that we made it!! It was located in Plaza Real which is a beautiful square right off of La Rambla (barcelona’s most famous street) and it was huge and beautiful. I now understand why it is considered one of the best hostels in Europe. It is 5 stories of rooms, free breakfast/dinner/Internet, an amazing lounge, in-hostel bar, laundry facilities on site and had an incredible social atmosphere.
Of course the first thing we did was engorge ourselves with sangria and paella – we were travel weary and famished from our overnight train. We ate right in the Plaza with the sun beaming down on us. SO delicious. Yes, I think Tammy and I now consider ourselves foodies after the amounts we consume. We can’t help it – when in Europe, eat everything!!
