Yesterday we headed back to la Barceloneta for an ice cream date. We have been trying to narrow down our favorite places in Barcelona to three so we can share them with you (more on this on Thursday) to add them in your itineraries in case you are visiting our city and fancy a creamy delicious treat. Just to make sure the recommendation was spot on (hmm….who I am kidding?) we visited Vioko ice-cream shop next to the beach.
We then hanged around the town instead of the beach because it was a quite windy day and let me tell you, wind, sand and trying to eat an ice cream are not very good together: don’t want to hear what it feels chewing sand. Plus the town, or I should more accurate say the neighborhood of La Barcelona has that coastal feeling when you suddenly can’t believe that you are still in Barcelona: people walking by in their swimming clothes, drying clothes hanging from the balconies or people in front of the doors sitting on a plastic chair reading a book.
We finally took pictures in front of a house that best represents the colors of the buildings you will find on the neighborhood. I noticed that it is pretty only neutrals in the walls there, very sandy. Hopefully my violets and blueberries ice-cream gives that punch of contrasting color.
Oh! I totally forgot to comment why I have titled the post Amarena cherry. Well, it’s my hands-down favorite flavor for ice-cream (strawberries if it’s a popsicle). Which one is yours? Keep tuned for our list of go-to places later on this week.
