The Magic of Barcelona in January

The Magic of Barcelona in January

Think #Barcelona is only for sunny days lounging on the beach? Think again! It's an #affordable spot to #escape the cold or to get in one last post-Christmas holiday. Choose a chic hotel, hop from bar to bar to cozy up with a cocktail, and enjoy those Spanish sunsets. After all, paella is just as good any time of year.


I’m in Barcelona, a destination that I had only considered for a summer holiday, but thanks to the advice of a friend, who told me, “Barcelona is nice anytime of year,” I switched my sights from spending a week in Central America to Spain.

Barcelona isn't only for sunny summer days

During the few weeks before “holiday trips”, ask where I am going, and it will be a different answer every time. Spain didn’t even register as a possibility until two days before I was to depart. My sights were set on Roatan, Colombia, Guatemala, or USVI. Spain…well, I didn’t really expect to be back in Europe so soon.

Here I am, and in short, Barcelona is wonderful

But here I am, and in short, Barcelona is wonderful. Between staying at W Barcelona, to exploring the streets of shops and restaurants, discovering the architectural genius of Gaudi, or riding Teleferico de Montjuic, my time has been filled.

Right now, I am lounging at Itaca Hostel, relaxing reggae music softly playing, while the smells and sizzle of an evening meal cooking in the kitchen remind me of my own hunger. I am going out for Vegetarian Paella tonight. Maybe some Sangria or Cava. Ah, I love Spain.

Relaxing reggae music is  softly playing, with the smells and sizzle of an evening meal cooking in the kitchen.

Next week, I’ll write about Barcelona in full detail. I’ll be sure to include entertaining stories, maybe about attractive Aussie Rugby players.
