Barcelona: Tibidabo

Photobucket
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, Dress: H&M, Bag: A gift from Alphabet Bags! Shoes: Topshop


  Tibidabo is an odd place. If you have seen Vicky Cristina Barcelona you may remember them visiting an old theme park. That's Tibidabo. It's quite a long route to get there because it's at the top of a mountain! If you go on a weekend you can get a tram half way up the mountain, but we had to get the bus. Not as exciting. Then to get to the very top, you have to take the funicular. Now that's exciting. Look at how excited I was: Photobucket

At the top there is a theme park, which was closed, some of the original fairground rides which you can still go on and a monastery, which is very grand and imposing and makes you feel quite bad for floating around the place, climbing on the climbing frames and sliding down the slides. While we were eating our baguettes, this cute cat came and stared at us mournfully. It clearly knew what it was doing! It was too cute. I gave it some food, I couldn't help it. Photobucket

Then we went on one of the original rides! It was just a plane that went round a couple of times, but the views were fab, and it was more exciting knowing people have been going on this ride for 80 years or more.

Lovely pictures you must have had a fabulous time. I adore your dress, the print is beautiful. I love the colour and the fact that the prints a little different from all the florals I usually see on dresses.

I love old theme parks.

I don't know if that's the same hill (i don't remember there being a theme park, but it must be. the one you can get a cable car up to too), but when we were in barcelona we were looking for this furnicular and could not find it at all! So we walked, or yes!
