Week 3

 

Alex

This is what our busy week 3 looked like. We did not have much time to rest with this active little boy! Every morning, Ricky started by doing english tutoring with Alex’s biology school work while I would prepare activities with english words and phrases.

We celebrated our host grandmother birthday too!

There is information on Barcelona bellow↓

  Barcelona

Barcelona is a popular destination in Spain for tourists. It is beautiful place, full of life during the day and even more at night. There is something to see everywhere. It is very historical with artistic architectural buildings to famous paintings museums from Antoni Gaudi, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali to name a few.

We wanted to see as much as we could in one weekend without rushing through the city in the heat. Some of our friends from Canada went to Vancouver to visit the city, and rented bicycles. We thought that was a great idea, so we searched online to see if it was possible to do the same in Barcelona. Here’s what we found :

I’m pretty sure there’s more…

Petit Palace Bocqueria Barcelona 

Situated in the hot spot of Barcelona, Las Ramblas, Petit Palace Bocqueria is a 4 star hotel. The decor is very modern and comfortable. There is a garden area outside where you can sit, and it is lid up at night with modern garden lights. There is a continental breakfast included with your stay. The staff was very friendly and they make sure you have the information you need to get around Barcelona.

Here are 10 great spots to check out, the pictures do not justify the real beauty :

  1. La Sagrada Familia Church
  2. The Magic Fountain Show
  3. The Picasso Museum
  4. Las Ramblas street
  5. Camp Nou Experience tour & museum
  6. Park Güell
  7. Casa Batllo
  8. Barceloneta
  9. Montjuïc
  10. Casa milà
