Menton – de parel van Frankrijk

Menton- de parel van Frankrijk, is een kleurrijk plaatsje dat aan de Italiaanse grens op de scheidslijn tussen de Franse Cote d’Azur en de Italiaanse bloemen Riviera ligt. Elk jaar wordt het “Fete du Citron” (Citroenfeest) georganiseerd, dat dit jaar op 17 februari begint. Het thema van dit feest is elk jaar anders en dit jaar is het Bollywood. Meer dan 300 professionals werken aan dit project en 145 ton citrusvruchten worden gebruikt en de rij met praalwagens is soms wel tot 10 meter lang!

 Citytrip | Een impressie van San Remo

Een impressie van San Remo…jaren geleden toen ik een paar dagen in Menton verbleef, een plaatsje aan de Franse Riviera, reisde ik met het reisgezelschap af naar deze prachtige Italiaanse stad, 40 km verderop. San Remo staat ook wel bekend als de bloemenstad vanwege de grootschalige bloementeelt. Nieuwsgierig geworden naar deze stad? Lees dan snel verder.

Last week you could read my adventures in Barcelona. Today I will share part 2 of my Barcelona photo diary.

5 Days in Barcelona | Part 2

Day 4 / Friday

A rainy day.

Because of the terrible weather, we visited the sea aquarium. It was lovely to see so many kinds of fishes and the sharks. I could spend hours watching these fishes with so many colors and sizes. This Museum is a perfect getaway for nature lovers and when it is raining 🙂

5 Days in Barcelona | Part 2

In the afternoon we went to The Design Museum which included a fashion department. I love to photograph fashion so this was perfect. The theme was “Dressing the body. Silhouettes and fashion (1550-2015)” like they say on the website: The exhibition Dressing the Body sets out to show how clothes modify the appearance of the body by way of actions that have alternately tended to compress it and liberate it, from the sixteenth century to the present.

Day 5 / Saturday

Exploring the Gracia district

The sun is back and the plan is to explore the Gràcia district. In the past, this was a village that was later added to the city. A village with a cozy atmosphere. At Placa de la Vila de Gràcia we spend some time in the sun and have a delicious lunch. We walk back through Passeig de Gracia and arrive again at Place Reial for a drink.

The next day it was time to leave for our next destination: Alicante! Next week, I will publish my photo diary of our 5 days in Alicante.

My impression

My impression of Barcelona is very good! A city that I didn’t know because I had to look a lot on Google Maps. We had 5 days in Barcelona so we could do everything at ease. It is after all holiday! In advance, I had read a bit about Barcelona, but not too much because I do not like that 🙂 and love the surprises a new city has for me.

Have you ever been to Barcelona? If so, what did you like the most?
