Trip to Catalunya 2014

I know it is Christmas and all so you need to excuse me for this totally non-festive post, however I feel like sharing with you some pictures from our recent trip to the Canary Islands, via Barcelona – the capital of Catalunya. This is the first part of pics from the trip, hope it will allow you to relax for a few minutes between baking two batches of Christmas cookies: just sit back and enjoy them 🙂 Just to get us all in the mood, let’s not forget Catalunya has an amazing shoreline – just a random photo from the “Maresma”:


But then of course this blog is mainly about FOOD so let’s see what we can find in a supermarket in Barcelona? Or rather, what Can’T we find there?

We even found olives with canarian mojo sauce – well you must accompany that with a serrano ham baguette 😀

Just a “simple” menu in a local lunch restaurant:

If you are ever in Barcelona, don’t forget to have a hot dog at Frankfurt’s (e.g. Frankfurt’s de Pedralbes, close to the Royal Palace), they make the BEST hot dogs ever!
