Two destinations for Christmas - Barcelona and Stuttgart! I started the Christmas season with a quick escape to Barcelona, for me, the best way to enjoy the sun in a short weekend. I love drinking mojitos in my t-shirt while it's freezing at home. The street decoration is lovely here and the whole ambiance is unique.. Yummy tapas and drinks in hidden corners, coffee shops and don't forget the prices of Zara, Mango etc which are the lowest here (because they are Spanish brands). Don't forget my BCN food guide with some places I visited again this time.

As usual, first thing to do when in Barcelona, drink a mojito or two at Carabela Cafe!

Last coffee break before taking the plane... Satan's Coffee Corner - a spot for coffee lovers.


Last weekend we had bus trip to Stuttgart with VOYAGES EMILE WEBER. Lovely Christmas ambiance,  amazing musicals, a cool Irish Pub inside the hotel, big shopping centre with all imaginable fashion and beauty brands inside and nice historical corners in the heart of the city. Everything is organised for you by the travel agency, something I needed very much for once..
