Ever seen a movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara and not engulfed by it? It’s impossible. You will fall in love not only with just its script, dialogues, story, and all the actors and their beautiful depiction of characters Kabir, Imran and Arjun but also with those beautiful cities they visit, in the medina like alleyways they roam around and the breath taking adventurous sports they experience just to rejuvenate themselves in a stronger person.
It’s not only me who wants to travel like those three e-school friends, I think, it is a dream of every millennial from India. And just as that, having an advantage of being in Europe and that too so close to Spain (FYI, I live in Bordeaux, France which comes kind of in the southern part of France), my plan and itinerary was already known to me. And so altering the original ZNMD plan because of some constraints (off course money guys, BC I am a student) by skipping Costa Brava, I decided to visit only Barcelona and Seville.
And as this trip was planned for 7 days and as there are millions of things to share about, I intentionally have divided this travel story in two parts. This part is only dedicated to Barcelona. To read about Seville, please check my next story.
For booking your travel plan, I advise you to check flight tickets on Skyscanner.com before booking it through Flixbus and GoEuro, as you can get cheaper flight tickets if you book them a month ago. Hostels in Barcelona are cheaper than that of Seville but the entry fees to different touristy places and even public transport in Barcelona are sky rocketed. My first impression with Barcelona after just looking at its map was that it was so big that you just can’t cover its never ending list of famous places just by walking. So I bought a 10 trips public transport card for around 10 Euros which I only wanted to use in some particular cases.
Warning: Barcelona is one of the three cities in Europe which is famous for pickpocketing. I think you can guess the other two.
