barcelona, spain - hair of the dog, morning noon and night

Two weeks after finishing my Master's and two weeks before our wedding, I flew solo to Barcelona and got blitzed every day for a week. I remember a few things: losing terribly at poker, giving up at rock climbing, a number of terrible early-morning runs in 100 degrees while massively hungover, a soccer match or two, and eating an entire watermelon and a bottle of rose for lunch. #preciousmemories

Barceloneta streets, Barcelona Spain
 

Barcelona port

Barcelona beach
Pro tip: the further you go away from the W, the better (/less touristy) the beaches are; but they're all deserted at 7am anyway.

YUGO vespa scooter share Barcelona
The public transport workers were on strike so we rented a Vespa. Everyone's got bike share but Barcelona has VESPA SHARE. What a city.

Rock climbing Barcelona
Rock climbing with a bunch of monkeys.

MONKEYS, I'm telling you.

Rock climbing Barcelona
Barcelona's free, open to the public 24/7 rock climbing tunnel. Full of dogs and handsome, muscled, and super chill men. Five stars; highly recommended.

Barceloneta balcony
When it is a million degrees out and you are hungover and you go to the store to buy lunch and leave with only an entire watermelon, and no regrets.

I lost terribly and spectacularly at poker against a bunch of Ticos but definitely held my own in beer and cava consumption.

Brunch Electronik Barcelona
Oh, Brunch Electronik. I really hate electronic music but I really love brunch, so I figured this would all even out. Until I was told not only is it NOT a brunch, but there is NO FOOD SERVED THERE AT ALL. WHUT.

Better load up on the pitchers of rose then.

We scavenged burgers and the hangry (angry + hungry) faded.
