I had the amazing opportunity to visit a few different countries in Europe a few months back – Barcelona being one of them. Even though my visit was short, I fell in love with this vibrant city and all that it has to offer. Spain is known to have some of the best food in the world so I did some research to find out where I should eat while there. I came across numerous 5 star reviews on a place called: Tickets. With a reservation waitlist that is as long as 2 months, I knew I had to get in to this Tapas Bar. Long story short – we got a reservation and this place is all that it was hyped up to be and more. It was hands down one of the most memorable stops on the whole vacation and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona. The owner of Tickets, Albert Adria, was interviewed by Anthony Bourdain on No Reservations: Spain

I hope to someday return to Barcelona and when I do – I will definitely be heading back to this place. Have you ever been to Barcelona? If so, what other restaurants do you recommend?

Hi everyone,

Thanks for following my blog! For as long as I can re-call, there was always a few things I have been obsessed with – beauty, fashion, traveling, eating…. but most of all, writing! A lot of  little girls growing up want to be a ballerina or a doctor but I have always had this wild imagination and I always wanted to be a writer. When I got to college my dream job was working for Condé Nast or Hearst and writing for Cosmo or Glamour Magazine. In my mind I had it all planned out – I would apply for a writing position, I would score it & I would become this well-known Advice Column writer. Needless to say… the real world doesn’ t work that way. I started to realize I might have watched a little too much Sex & the City & admired Carrie Bradshaw a bit much.

Even though I never landed my dream job I sit here today still obsessed with the same things so I figured… why not start a blog. I attempted the blogging thing a few years back and life kinda got in the way.  Hopefully this time will be different.
