Casa-Museu Salvador Dali

I love fashion, but I also love art. Yesterday I went to the Casa-Museu Salvador Dali in Port Lligat. I must say his house is incredible. Port Lligat is already a beautiful place with an amazing view. That combined with a house build by such a creative person as Dali makes a magnificent place. This was the third time I went there. The first time the museum wasn't open. The second time I found out that you had to make a reservation to go in the house. So now, the third time, I finally went inside. But really wow, what an amazing house! The house is divided in different areas and for each area you get 10 minutes to observe. I can tell you more, but I guess pictures say more than words.

In a shop there I found these beautiful bracelets, which I bought off-course.

Lace and Festa Major Sant Roc 2010

I bought a new bracelet made of lace. The Festa Major Sant Roc 2010 have started here in Malgrat de Mar (Spain) and that's why hundreds of people where making lace in a street. That's where I bought my bracelet, which must have been a lot of work to make.

Shopping in Barcelona

Last wednesday I went to Barcelona. It must have been the fifth or sixth time I went there, but man what an amazing city! I went by train. I bought a return ticket from Malgrat de Mar to Barcelona and it cost me only seven euros. That's so cheap! It's quite difficult to find out which train you must take to arrive in Barcelona, but never be scared to ask someone. If you try to speak spanish, they'll help you, because most of the spanish people don't speak english.

Avinguda del Portal d'Angel

I arrived on Catalunya Plaza from which I went to one of Barcelona's main shopping streets, Avinguda del Portal d'Angel. In this street you'll find shops such as Pull & Bear, Zara, H&M, Mango, Stradivarius, etc. The first shop I ran into was the Pull & Bear and I love that shop. They have great, fashionable clothing for a reasonable price. So yes, I bought a lot of clothing there. I also bought two shirts at Stradivarius. I have to add that it smells great in that shop! It sounds strange, but it really does.

Las Ramblas

I walked further to Las Ramblas. This is the busiest street in Barcelona with a lot of souvenirshops and restaurants. I went there to go to Pastisseria Escriba. They sell this amazing chocolat here. I bought hot chocolate with caramelised violets. The violets where different. I don't know if I liked it or not. But the chocolat underneath it was delicious! I decided to buy some bonbons for my family too. It was a small box with 15 little bonbons and it cost me 20 euros. So that's quite expensive.

El Corte Inglés

After my visit to Escriba I walked back to Placa Catalunya to take a last stop at El Corte Inglés, which is a big department store. You can find everything here, from food to cosmetics to clothing to houseware. It's not cheap, but especially the cosmetics section is worth a look. You can find all sorts of brands here, such as MAC, Chanel, Helena Rubinstein and Nina Ricci.

From here I went back to Malgrat de Mar by train.

Last tip

If you've never visited Barcelona before, make sure you go and see some cultural stuff too. You have to take a look at Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and Casa Mila.
