My top 3 Post TBEX Trip Itineraries

Ok so I have picked my top 3 post TBEX trip itineraries and I’m sharing them here with you. They all take place in Barcelona area and the reason for my choice is
1. I really wanted to visit Barcelona during this trip and 2. I didn’t want to do it alone. So my thinking is I will do Barcelona with a group of 10 and then on my free days I can explore the other smaller surrounding areas and towns so that way I don’t miss out on anything. These are my top 3 choices order:

#1: A Different Barcelona

On the second day you will enjoy some attractive morning activities: paddle surfing, kayaking or sailing along the coastline which will provide a different, fresh and new vision of Barcelona’s skyline. And after the activities, a Paella Tasting in one of the typical “Xiringuitos“ on the Barcelona Sea Front. Later on, we will go on a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter finishing with a dinner in the famous La Rambla!!

On the last day of the blogtrip we will go to the MNAC , Museum of National Art of Catalonia to see the inside and treasures hidden in the basement of the museum. Wonderful unique artwork are being saved in the restoration workshops.  Then we will see the city while enjoying a bike tour, an easy and fun tour downhill Montjuic.
