Last year I took a trip to Barcelona one of the hippest cities in the world. Now whilst my travelling companion was less than desirable the minute I arrived on Catalan soil - I was in love.

The journey into town from the airport was a short but energetic ride. The taxi driver was obviously a avid fan of Jason Statham.... Luckily for me I had my duty companion on hand to steady my nerves... Vodka!

After settling in to the uber swanky W Hotel it was time to hit the town.....drinking & dancing down Las Ramblas.

Barcelona is well known for its great night life & it did not disappoint... I could of danced all night but my Louboutins had other idea's. I, of course not wanting to look like a lightweight put the blame firmly at the next days sight seeing.. after all I wouldn’t want to disappoint Mr Gaudi would I?!

The next morning after slipping past a celebrity or two in the lobby of the hotel we hit the sights.

Places to visit in BarcelonaIn Barcelona there is a wealth of things to see. My top picks are Park Guell, Aquarium Barcelona & the Sagrada Familia. Even though the Sagrada Familia is still under construction it is undoubtedly the most beautiful piece of architecture I have ever seen.

The afternoon was topped of with a visit to Montjuïc. Now whilst I love high heels, heights are not my favourite things so taking a cable car from Port Vell Marina to Montjuïc took some persuading. But my companion promised me we could hit the Mango outlet store & copious amounts of Tapas & Sangria.

How could a gal resist?

The cable car ride was exciting, thrilling & dangerous & I never felt more alive. The views across the city was amazing. I was glad I let my greed for discounted clothes & gorgeous food sway me!!

Before too long it was my last day in Barcelona and of course it's always a bit of a quandary on what to do on the last day.

Do you rush around picking up snow globes & souvenir t-shirts or something else? I was distinctly in the something else camp much to my companions disgust & I found the perfect end to my Catalonian misadventures… Wine Tour!

The tour took in 3 wine houses Jean Louis, Freixenet & Bodegas Torres Cellars .

The tour was great & I must admit it's the first time I have ever done anything so 'grown' up! I strongly recommend any trip where your 'forced' to sample lots of different wine whilst looking superior!!

Barcelona is indeed one of the best places I have either been to & I for one cannot wait to go back.... after all I didn’t get to the Zara outlet store last time!
