In this video I will show you a bunch of cool
ideas and the activities that you can do when you're bored. I filmed this video during my
vacation in Barcelona, but you can do all of these wherever you are in the world. We
just landed in Barcelona, I can't wait to explore it for a week and you guys are coming
with me! Come on! GO TO THE PARK!
This is our first day in Barcelona, we got our tour guides and the first stop is park
Guell. We got in! An awesome thing that you can do when bored is going to the park.
a few hours outside will refresh your mind and body. Take with you a friend or go alone.
Sit on the bench with a good book, spend time strolling around, taking pictures, listening
to birds and admiring the world around you. This famous park consists of gardens and amazing
architectural elements, designed by Antoni Gaudi, a renowned architect and a face of
Catalan modernism. But your park doesn't have to be word famous like this one! Sometimes
the peaceful, hidden places can give us much more life and energy.
VISIT AN AMUSEMENT PARK! We got our tickets guys, let's go to Port
I love visiting amusement parks when I have the opportunity. To me it feels
like stepping into a fantasy world for a day and makes me forget all the real life problems.
So take a fun day in your nearest amusement park with your friends and family! Enjoy the
rides, the food and just be wild and free. I am not a big fan of the super scary rides,
but that's OK because every park has so many attractions to chose from so you can definitely
find something for your taste. Get ready guys! I loved our day in the Port Aventura park the weather was perfect, it wasn't too crowded and the rides were epic! And now we're going to take
you guys here.
Are you guys ready for the scariest roller coaster in Europe? Shamballa
is the fastest, highest and longest coaster here. I didn't dare to go on it, but my boyfriend
did and he also filmed the experience. So enjoy the ride! SIGHTSEEING! I like discovering and learning about new
places, but you don't have to travel to another country or city to do some sightseeing. Sometimes
we live on one place for years and decades and we are so drawn in our every day routine
that we forget to appreciate all the amazing things our home town has to offer.
third day in Barcelona and now we are in the Placa Espanya and I'm going to show you some
sights here. So be tourist for a day in your own city. Explore the parts, that you don't
go to every day or visit the local museum to learn about the roots of your town. It's
funny how we all want to visit the cool popular places around the world, when sometimes the
biggest treasures are right in front of us.
RELAX ON THE BEACH! We are going to the beach,
come on. Here we are at the Barcelona beach and there is a dead rat. That's why we are
not going to go swimming. I can sit by the sea for hours just staring
at the ocean, listening to the waves and the seagulls.
I don't know what is it but I find
it extremely relaxing and fulfilling. If you don't live by the sea, go for a walk to the
nearest lake or river. Invite a friend, a boyfriend or just have some alone time surrounded
by the beautiful nature. Fun fact about me – I'm a huge snacky person.
We came here on
the beach for one hour and look what I got with me. Some apples, donuts – I've already
eaten one and some multi grain biscuits. I'm going to eat it all. Yum, Yum.
Boyfriend is a snacky
person too, but not as much as me. – I wasn't until I met Sara. I wasn't swimming that day
in Barcelona, not only because of the rat, but also because it was quite chilly and windy.
Still, I loved spending a few hours with feet in the sand, relaxing after the long walking
hours from the previous days. SHOPPING!
Most of us girls love shopping, right? Well Barcelona has a lot to offer shopping wise.
Especially the local Spanish fashion brands are worth checking out.
I feel that even though
these brands are globally present the selection and the prices were way better in Spain. Anyway,
more than buying a lot of stuff and spending a ton of money I enjoy the experience of walking
from a store to the store whilst chatting with friends, mum or my boyfriend. Instead
of going to the shopping mall where all you have around you is a ton of shops, I recommend
shopping in the city centres, or on the shopping streets. When walking from a store to a store
you can also admire the buildings, the architecture and the city life.
Barcelona is definitely
a star in that sense. While walking the streets you suddenly notice the amazing architectural
creations like La Pedrera, which is a modernist building, designed by Gaudi. The house has
a unique rouned stone facade and twisting iron balconies. Another one of his masterpieces
is house Batllo, where he used pieces of the ceramic tiles to decorate the facade.
walked past the world famous Sagrada Familia. The construction of this majestic church commenced
in 1882 and is estimated to be finished around 2026. Hmm… A real quick and easy DIY, don't
you think?! DO SPORTS!
When you're bored and feeling low in energy try to do some sports.
Activity is not just
super healthy for your body and mind, but it will also make you feel fantastic.
VISIT THE LOCAL FARMERS MARKET! Today we decided to walk the famous Rambla
street and we are starting here at the Placa Catalunya.
Rambla is a central 1.2 Kilometre long street full of souvenir shops, cafes, restaurants
and street artists. The thing that I was the most excited about though it's the market
la Bouqueria. There you can find an amazing selection of chocolates, sweets, gummy candy,
ice creams but also juices, meat, sea food and tons of delicious fresh fruit cups. Those
looked so yummy, I had to grab one even though I wanted to grab at least 10.
No joke! If
you are bored, go check out your local farmers market and try out some of their yummy products.
There's always so much going on on such markets, I really like to just stroll around and observe
the food and people around me. While walking the Rambla street I found a cute bakery shop
and picked up some macaroons. We continuedour way towards the sea and spotted a cool Columbus tower at the end of the street. These are our Rambla purchases and I can't wait to try the macaroons because, I've never tried them before.
I want to take a picture… I have a feeling that this one will be the best one. Sugar, jam and a little bit of biscuit
in it. I'm going to start with the pineapple.
Here you go! After more sightseeing we became
hungry so we decided to try out something different. We had the Spanish paella several
times in Barcelona so that day we chose Macedonian cuisine. Here is the pita bread and I got
the greek salad. But you don't have to go to the restaurant to try something new.
actually love trying out new recipes when I have time, from Mexican, Indian to Italian
and French. You can learn so much about different cultures through the food. So I dare you guys,
try to cook something completely new. VISIT A ZOO OR AQUARIUM!
For all the animal lovers out there a great thing to do when bored is visiting a zoo or
an aquarium! First we spent a few minutes in the Barcelona aquarium shop, where they
sell a lot of sea stuffed animals, toys and souvenirs.
But we couldn't wait to see some
real sea animals, including sharks, so let's dive into the ocean. The 35 aquariums in the
building are home to 11 thousand animals, representing 450 species. The facility is
divided in several sections, like Mediterranean, ocean and Tropical, where we also found Nemo
and Dori. By the way, are you guys excited about the Finding Dori film coming soon? I
literally can't wait.
Finding Nemo is one of my favorite animated films and Dori was
such an awesome character so I bet Finding Dori will be spectacular. Look at the invisible
fish guys. Here is one big bowl of seahorses and here is another one. One of the best parts
of the aquarium was definitely the shark tunnel, where we could see sharks swimming all around
and above us.
I thought it was quite scary, but very cool at the same time. Sara are you
still afraid of sharks? Yes, but this was really epic. Look it's a unicorn – sea unicorn.
Penguin! Penguin… Thank you for being with me on this trip, now it's time to travel back home, but we are just in time for some last minute airport shopping.
Bye! After a week of Barcelona adventures it was
time to travel back north. I will definitely remember this fantastic city by the unique
architecture, delicious food and vibrant street style. Hope you enjoyed travelling with me
and got some inspiration on what to do when you are bored! Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,
