As I'm writing this, the rain is beating down on my roof. Very different from the sunshine that my NSMBL colleague Chloë and I enjoyed when we were in Barcelona this weekend! Dutch TV-channel Net5 and Transavia organized a trip to Barcelona called Girls Flight Out: a short weekend full of shopping, food and sunshine.
We flew from Eindhoven Airport, where we received a lovely goodie bag with champagne, chocolate and magazines. More goodies awaited us when we got to the STUNNING hotel, H1898 on the Ramblas. I actually remember walking past this hotel a bunch of times and thinking how cool it would be to stay there. We got a big giftbag with beauty products from Dr Van Der Hoog, KOH and Biosilk (my fave!), among others.
Upon arrival we got drinks and bites and a presentation of Net5's roster for next season, proving once again that they're your one-stop shop for drama series. Net5 staples like Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives will return, but there will be plenty of their own Dutch productions as well.
After the presentation Chloë and I hit the town, shopped loads and loads and at the end of the night we ended up back in our fancy hotelroom with champagne, McDonalds' and Burger King.
The next day we got up early to enjoy H1898's amazing spa facilities, which we had all to ourselves! We swam for like an hour and then we enjoyed a lovely breakfast. Then it was back to shopping (and shamefully returning some splurge purchases from the night before).
In the afternoon we hung out at beach bar CDLC, before the buss took us back to the airport. Bye, Barcelona! See you soon! Million thanks to Transavia, Net5 and all the people involved for making this a lovely day.
