BARCELONA, IBIZA AND LISBON TRIP SUMMARY

in #travel2 years ago (edited)

Let me start this blog saying that my friends and I decided to make this amazing trip, and that our emotions were so hyped even four months before. All we were thinking about was the great time that we were about to experience, hanging out, living the nightlife, enjoying the beaches, culture, history, you name it.

Déjame comenzar con esto, mis amigos y yo decidimos hacer este super viaje con nuestras emociones altas 4 meses antes de viaje. Con eso en mente, imaginen la exaltación, Teniendo un buen tiempo de fiestas, playas, nueva cultura, sus historias, etc.

Lets start with Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸

As soon as we arrived, we took a cab 🚕 to visit the Gothic Quarter area. This is a SPECTACULAR place; there are so many spots to hang out, shopping areas, sightseeing historical places and everything within walking distance which is important. The nightlife was great, lots of nightclubs and bars. I think that 90% of the people around are tourists.

Tan pronto llegamos, tomamos un taxi de camino al area del “Cuarto Gótico” . Amigos el area es ESPECTACULAR para salir, comprar, y ver históricas estructuras en tan pocos pasos, es BIEN importante. La vida nocturna es buena con muchos bares y clubes. Creo que el 90% de las personas son turistas.

Visited places

Güell Park: a must go

You will have to take the train from the Gothic Quarter to get here, is far but so worth it. When you finally get there is so relaxing 😌 there is so much to walk, you’ll see people selling stuff on every corner. Is the time to BARGAIN, if you have read my other blogs you must know that I love doing that!! 😬. The whole park is a piece of art, and you will enjoy it.

Tienes que tomar el tren desde el area Gótica. Es un poquito lejos pero vale la pena. Cuando llegues al parque encontraras que tendrás q caminar un poco y veras muchos comerciantes en cada esquina. Puedes NEGOCIAR, y si has leído mis blogs anteriores sabras que me gusta eso 😁. El parque entero es una pieza de arte, lo disfrutaras.

Barcelona Beach 🏝

This is a great area to stay all day long: beachfront restaurants, many beach sports to practice, great long sidewalks, this is what I call a chill out place.

Excelente area para estar todo el día: restaurantes frente a la playa, deportes playeros, largo paseo para caminar, esto es lo que llamo tremendo pasadía de relajación.

La Sagrada Familia

Impressive masterpiece!!! If you want to enjoy this stop, I recommend for you to start walking from a far distance, as you get closer you will appreciate every beautiful and elaborated detail.

impresionante obra maestra, si de verdad quieres disfrutarlo, te recomiendo que camines desde la distancia para que aprecies lo hermoso y lo elaborado q esta la catedral.

La Rambla

Is IMPERATIVE to walk through La Rambla. In my opinion, a morning walk around the avenue is the best, it will fill you up with a great vibe; there are so many things to see, so many kiosks, restaurants, stores, and beautiful people. Eating and drinking was my favorite thing to do here.

es REQUERIDO caminar por la Rambla. Caminar por la avenida por la mañana es lo mejor, te llena de buena vibra. Hay muchas cosas que ver, kioscos, restaurantes, tiendas y gente linda. Comer y beber son las mejores cosas q puedes hacer aquí.

La Boqueria Market

Hell yeah, get ready to eat like a pig 🐽 🤤. EXPENSIVE JAM, meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, sweets, drinks, you name it. Good stuff and all fresh!

Claro que si, estamos ready para comer como puerco/marrano/cerdo 🐽😂. Jamón ibérico (SUPER CARO), carnes, mariscos , pescados, frutas, vegetales, dulces, bebidas, en fin... Buenos productos y frescos.

Plaza Real

This is a very popular site. There is a lot of tourists in this area. There are a great selection of restaurants and a great day/night atmosphere.
Stop by and have a MOJITO. 🙌🏼

Esta plaza en bien popular. Hay muchos turistas en esta area. Tienen una gran selección de restaurantes y el ambiente de día y noche es buenísima. Por favor, pidan un MOJITO cuando pasen por ahi 🙌🏼

Clubs Recommendations

Clubs are expen$ive, but partying all night long is granted:

Los siguientes clubes son bien costosos, pero van a fiestar toda la noche:

-CATWALK
-PACHA
-SHÔHO
-OPIUM

Next stop: Ibiza, Spain

Well, this is definitely the perfect spot for “hardcore” party people and some relaxing time at the beach.
Listen, I’m not a big party person but I was impressed, Damn!! I don’t really know HOW they can do it, there are people partying all night long, from sunset to sunrise, literally NON-STOP with the same music style 😱. (You don’t have to tell me details about HOW 😂😂😂)

Bueno, definitivamente el lugar perfecto para la gente “hardcore” fiestera y par estar relajados al frente de la playa. Escuche bien, yo no soy una persona super fiestera pero estoy impresionado. COÑO, no se COMO esa gente se mantienen fiesteando toda la noche de puesta de sol al amanecer SIN PARAR con la misma música 😱. (No me tienen que dar detalles del COMO 😂😂😂)

Hotel Ushuaia

This is the whole package: party, drinks, party, food, party, beach, party, pool, party, nice rooms, party and MORE PARTY!!!! Lol The hotel is pricey but you will get what you paid for. Outside of the hotel there are restaurants, bars, etc. with a great vibe feeling.

Este hotel es un paquete completo: fiesta, bebidas, fiesta, comida, fiesta, playa, fiesta, piscina, fiesta, buenos dormitorios, fiestas y MAS FIESTA!!!! 😂, el hotel es un poco costoso pero recibes por lo que pagas. Si sales fuera del hotel encontraras una avenida llena de buena vibra con restaurantes, bares, etc.

Around the Island

My advice: rent a 🛵 or a 🚗 and start driving around the island. Usually the car rental agency will give you recommendations for the best spots or places to go and see. I went to a couple places, my time was limited 🙁

Mi sugerencia es alquilar un auto y/o motora y comienza a navegar alrededor de la isla. Normalmente la agencia de renta te da recomendaciones para los mejores lugares que pueden ir a ver. Solo pude ir algunos lugares porque mi tiempo estaba limitado 😔.

  • Mirador de la Isla de es Vedrá. (STUNNING VIEW)
  • Sa Caleta
  • Blue Martini Ibiza
  • Es Cubells
  • Cala Tarida
  • Platges de Comte (THE BEST BEACH AND BEAUTIFUL VIEW)

Trust me, there are so many places to visit, but again, I was there for two days only 😩

Creanme , hay muchos otros lugares que pueden visitar, pero solo estuve dos dias 😩.

Clubs Recommendations

Expensive, but as I said before, the NONStop party is granted!

Un poco caros, pero como dije, Fiesta sin parar.

-PACHA
-USHUAIA HOTEL
-HI IBIZA
-AMNESIA

Next and last but not least, Lisbón, Portugal 🇵🇹

In my opinion the BEST SPOT on this trip. As soon as I started walking around Barrio Alto I fell in love 😍. Is like a more mature environment, those tiny streets, hidden restaurants, nightclubs and pubs bring it to another level. This part of the town is like a mix of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and Rome, Italy. So colorful!!!
Besides Barrio Alto, the following locations are a must go:

En mi opinión el MEJOR lugar de este viaje. Tan pronto comenzamos a caminar el barrio alto me enamore del lugar😍. Es un ambiente mas maduro. Estas pequeñas calles, restaurantes escondidos, clubes nocturnos y bares lo hacen ver a otro nivel. Esta parte de la ciudad se me parece un poco a una mezcla de el Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico y Roma, Italia. Muy colorido!!! En adición al Barrio Alto, las siguientes localidades son requerido ir:

Mercado La Ribeira

Nice market, good place to eat and have a good relaxing time with friends.

Linda area comercial, buena zona para comer, relajarse y compartir con los amigos.

Torre Belém

Dreamy castle surrounded by water 😍, no more to say, you have to see it!

Castillo de ensueño rodeado por agua 😍, nada mas que decir, tienes que verlo.

Padres del Descubrimiento

Monument dedicated to the people who contributed on the depart of the “Carabelas”. Do you really know the history about how Christopher Columbus got those? Check it out!!

Monumento dedicado a las personas que contribuyeron a embarque de las Carabelas. Sabes la historia de como Cristobal Colon pudo conseguirlas?

Edward Vll Park

Very beautiful garden, kiosks and a stunning view down the road heading to the coast.

Grande y hermoso jardín, kioskos y una vista impresionante desde el tope del jardín hacia la avenida mirando hacia la costa.

Comercio Plaza

This place will catch your attention because of the history behind it, is an eye-catching place.

Este lugar llamará tu atención por la historia que hay detrás de ella, tus ojos se quedaran admirando el paisaje.

Many thanks @crypt0lizard for this great post!

A venture to Spain is on my bucket list so I truly enjoyed the pics. I'm reminded that I was to attend the Olympic Games in Barcelona; but, life has a way of redefining one's plans.

I realize their economy is in a recession; but, I still believe I'd enjoy calling it home for a few years. One never knows how the river will bend.

Best regards.

Peace.

My pleasure, glad you liked it and brought you good memories. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
