Two weeks in December? You said two weeks? Hells yeah beaches – Is what escaped my mouth in front of suited serious looking corporate rats (also my colleagues) when I heard of the upcoming paid time off. But December is also a cold unforgiving month for travel, especially to Europe. I couldn’t care less though, even if it meant freezing to death feeling like being bitten by a white walker. I planned, researched, and packed my bags for an epic (in my mind) solo trip (woot woot!) to central Europe and Barcelona (slightly warm in December)!
Of all the places, I was most excited about spending 4 days in Barcelona. Barcelona, vibrant sea side city, the world capital of modernism, rich cultural history and quite simply, one of the world's most fascinating cities. I was already in love.
I even carefully picked out and booked this charming boutique bakery hotel called Praktik Bakery , in Eixample, also serving some of the best almond croissants in Barcelona. If you like waking up to sweet smell of cinnamon buns and freshly baked goods, and watching bread bakers masterfully knead the dough like a ninja, book this one in a heartbeat!
