Barcelona — day 1

First day in Barcelona!! I've been waiting for this week-end to come for so long~ I'm glad I could spend these three lovely days with Marie, Tro-tro and Sandra ♡ After waking up way too early and spending too many hours in airports we finally made it to this amazing city. 

We spent one afternoon full tourist mode and I couldn't be happier! We first went to the Harry Potter inspired Pudding Café, then Park Güell and finally Barcelona Cathedral. I wish I could have spent more days in Barcelona, definitely a destination I would like to come back to. 

I loved everything about this Harry Potter café's decoration: roof, walls, accessories, everything was perfectly on theme. I really liked the fact that it was more subtle than I thought it would be: it also had that kind of old book store feeling! It seems there was another room downstairs with the Hogwarts houses flags, but we didn't see it until the very end. 

Look at these cuties!! We sat upstairs, near the old book library part. It really felt like being in the Hogwarts library or in one of the common room. Moreover, not only the place was super cute but the food was delicious! I went for a hot chocolate with marshmallow and a salmon and spinach quiche, I couldn't believe the size of the slice I got (only 10€ for both!!). 

Since we would be walking all day, we went for comfortable outfits (except Marie's shoes haha).

I really wanted to wear that Jane Marple dress! I love it so much, I'm glad I could wear it to Barcelone (still too cold in Paris....). By chance, it also matched the Harry Potter café! I've never felt so much on theme. Plus, look at these books, we found some strange things but this small dog portrait might be the best.

If you had any doubt about my final thoughts: I would definitely recommend this place! Some other girls told me the staff weren't really nice but I thought they were all lovely with us, we had a little chat at the very end and it seems they were quite please to see so many people coming in these late days (I guess every single lolita in town went there haha). They also have a Circus/Alice themed cafe in Barcelona, though we didn't have time to go there we would have loved to!

We also went to Park Güell and had a great time walking all around the park. Unfortunately, we didn't know there was a fee to enter the Gaudi part (8€), thus we came a little too late and the next enter time was more than 45 minutes after we got there. In the end, we just wander in the free part and got a lovely drawing of us from a local artist. 

did Marie and I switch our shoes? maybe.
We spent last hours of daylight in the Barri Gotic, being amazed by every little streets and details we crossed. Barcelona is definitely a lovely city I wish to come back to. The only thing we could think about with Marie was how badly we wanted to have photoshoots in that area! I'll just leave porn pictures of the Barcelona Cathedral so you can understand how beautiful this place is.

That was a fantastic day that I was glad to spend with these cuties, it's been so long we didn't travel together! We had diner at a tapas bar near our flat and ended the night with a now traditional ice cream at McDonald's ♡ Leaving you with these two pictures full of tiredness and love. Love you
