Back from Barcelona

Posted in Barcelona, CID MUSIC, Gigbeth, Music, Travel by Claire Burgess on November 19, 2008

Sorry I have been slow on the blogging front but I have been recovering from Gigbeth/Gigbeth Fringe madness and celebrating my birthday in Barcelona.

First things first, The Gigbeth Fringe went really well. We packed out the front of The Rainbow and much fun, dancing and whooping was had to the sounds of Mama Matrix, Smileymic, Laura Louise and Marc Reck. Smashing!

I spent the next day working at Gigbeth. Even the heavy rain couldn’t dampen my spirits as I sang along to Things Can Only Get Better with D:Ream, took photo’s of Smileymic meeting the Sugarhill Gang and Dance my socks off when they performed Rapper’s Delight.

Smileymic talks about what it was like to meet the US hip hop legends as well as what happened while we were in The Green Room here.

Then bags packed and off to Barcelona. After a blurry eyed start and a slightly confused trip on the metro system my twin sister and I arrived in one piece and set about enjoying the sites with lots of wine and sangria in between. Here are my top 5 things to do in Barca:

1) Go to see Barcelona play at Nou Camp

2) Have a meal at Les Cants Neits (The 15th Night) in the square off The Ramblas- The food is like a party in your mouth.

3) Go to Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi temple – The best view of Barcelona.

4) Have an ice cream at Port Veil- You can feed the fish too.

5) Go to the beach at Port Olympic, sit back and enjoy the sunshine.

A lovely relaxing Birthday. Now, back to work!
