The infamous Park Guell! Curved lines and mosaics are my thing... like my dream is to have a back fence covered in mosaics, so I was pretty excited to visit Park Guell. I didn't pre-buy our tickets for here thinking there'd be no problem... well that was a mistake! After getting lost on the train for an hour and going in the complete opposite direction (I blame it on pregnancy brain) we arrived to Park Guell later than planned...and then were told we had to wait 3 hours to enter. So for future notice, pre-book your tickets! Keep reading below ->

23 weeks with our baby girl. I remember thinking I was SO big here, lol that's a joke now at 36 weeks.
This place was a "must-go" on my list and there wasn't even a question if we should go or not. I love everything Gaudi designs and creates but I have to say this place was maybe at the bottom of the list?! I was really disappointed, maybe it was the fact that my tired pregnant body with blistered feet had to climb a bazillion stairs to then find out at the entrance that the wait was for 3 hours and we had to go back down the stairs... or it could be the fact that it took us 10 minutes to see everything once we entered and there were SO many people there it was hard to even get a photo without anyone in it OR it could be that 1 of the 4 main buildings was covered in netting and under construction?! I'm not sure what it was but it definitely didn't compare to the other Gaudi sites in my mind, it was a "not-nescessary site to see in Barcelona". All the hype doesn't help either. None the less the mosaics were beautiful and there were great views of the city from the hill.
