Aaaaand that was unfortunately the end of our trip to sunny Spain (I had everything crossed in the plane but it didn’t prevent London from being cold and wind-ey when we landed…)!
I don’t usually write reviews of stores here. But I had such a crush on Typographia (both the space and the Tshirts!) that I had to share it! Also because it might just be the solution to one of the major problems in my life: what present to give to all my male friends?!
What: Brilliant graphic T-Shirts for all the men in your life! + the only tourist T-Shirt you can actually wear in real life without looking like those guys
How much: 18.5€ each
Where: Typographia, Carrer de la Mare de Deu del Coll, 2, Barcelona (closest station: Lesseps). And they ship to Europe and beyond via their website!
*Pintxos are small snacks typical popular in the Basque country, which are usually ‘spiked’ with a skewer to a piece of bread. At the end of the meal, you return your plate and pay according to the number of skewers left in it.DECISIONS, DECISIONS…SEAFOOD TORTILLA PINTXOSMY PERSONAL FAVE: DUCK TERRINE + CONFIT ORANGE CROISSANT!FRESH CHEESE + PEPPER RELISH + PINE NUTS PINTXOJAMON + MUSHROOMS: ALWAYS A GOOD IDEATUNA STEAK + ONION PICKLE PINTXOFRESH ANCHOVY + TAPENADE + ONION PICKLE

Tip: As usual with Barcelona’s tapas bar, don’t be afraid to claim your spot at the bar! Ask the staff for a plate and get stuck in!
What to order: My favourite was the duck terrine & confit orange croissant, but the tortilla and anchovy ones were also really good!
How much: Each pintxos costs 2€. For a light lunch, you’ll want 6-8 pintxos/person, so the bill should be around 15€ pp + drinks.
Where: Irati Taverna Basca, Carrer del Cardenal Casañas, 17, 08002 Barcelona
