Christmas Markets in Barcelona | Fira de Santa Llucia

Christmas Markets are famous every Christmas season. You will be able to see there a lot of stuff that are related to Christmas such as Christmas tree, Christmas decors, stuff that are related to Christmas beliefs of a certain place. Aside from that, there are a lot of countries that are doing this such as France, Amsterdam, Germany, Philippines, etc. This is an annual event that every places or countries are competing on.

Christmas is a season to gather with your loved ones; family, friends, workmates, etc. And Christmas Markets give its contribution to the season. But let us not forget the real reason for Christmas, the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ.


Here in Barcelona, we also have Christmas Markets and they are located in front of the famous Cathedral of Barcelona in Barrio Gothic. It is an advantage if you are planning your vacation here because it is near to Las Ramblas. You can go there without travelling too long.

And for those who already live in Barcelona, you should take time to go there. It will give you a Christmas vibes, relieve your stress as well and have time for yourself or with you family and friends.

They have a lot to offer so without further ado, I will tell you the things that you can see and buy inside the Christmas Markets in Barcelona.

1. Nativity Scenes and figurines

The birth of Jesus Christ is the reason for Christmas and we all should celebrate it. In Christmas Markets, you will find a lot of manger that represents the place of His birth. There are also Nativity scene with figurines or just the figurines alone. We usually see Nativity Scene in churches, buildings. But now, you can have your own Nativity Scene with different sizes that is enough for your home.
2. Christmas Trees

  Inside the Christmas Markets, you will be able to see and buy your own Christmas Tree. And take note, they are real! They have a variety of heights to offer. 

As we all know, you cannot grow a real Christmas tree or evergreen fir tree just anywhere. There are specific cities or countries that has the best weather and land for these kind of trees. And if you want to have such Christmas vibe using a real Christmas tree, it is your chance. 

3. The Caga Tio

  The Caga Tio is a character in Catalan mythology relating to a Christmas tradition wide spread in Catalonia. It is being used during Christmas eve. It is a trunk from a tree to which children must spank in order to provide them with gifts that they will get from the back of the trunk. It is a good feeling of having different traditions from different countries.

4. Caganer

  Another thing that is inspired by Caga Tio are these small mannequins or Caganer that are pooping. You will see all the characters from President of US, heroes, cartoon characters, famous actors, football players, etc. If you are a fan, it is a good thing to collect this.

5. Santa Clause

Even we live in Spain, Santa Clause is still famous to people of all ages. So you will surely see different kinds and sizes of Santa Clause in Christmas Market in Barcelona.
6. Christmas Decorations

  If you are not fun of Christmas trees, Caga Tio, Nativity Scene. You can still have these Christmas house decoration. They are small that you can just hang on your doors, walls, or put above the table. By this, there will still Christmas vibes inside your house. 

  Christmas is the best season to spend time with your family, relatives and friends. But let us all be thankful for its reason, the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ. Let´s have time to pray, ask for forgiveness and change for the better. Let´s have spiritual encounter with God. 

I wish you a Merry Christmas and God bless you!

CentOnze Restaurant Review | Le Méridien Barcelona

Las Ramblas in one of the signature places in Barcelona, Spain. It is a good experience to have lunch or dinner in this area. And one of the most attractive restaurants is The CentOnze Restaurant. The CentOnze Restaurant is connected with the 5 star hotel Le Méridien.

CentOnze Restaurant is located in Las Ramblas 111, Barcelona Spain. It is near Le Meridien, Hotel 1898, Nike, Decathlon, etc. 

If you are walking around in Las Ramblas or near by places such as Plaza Catalunya, Calle Pelayo, or Barrio Gotico, you should not miss eating in this restaurant for it is just a few steps from those said famous destinations in Barcelona Spain.

But if you are coming away from these said places, there are two nearest Metro Station Stops such as Plaza Catalunya and Liceu.
CentOnze Restaurant

CentOnze Restaurant offers different variety of foods from Starters, Tapas, Meats, Fish and as well as different drinks. You can check directly in their website the choices of foods that they offer.

A La Carte
Here are some of their A La Carte:


CentOnze Restaurant also offers Menu. You can take a starter, main and dessert for only 16.50€ for weekdays, and 22.90€ for weekends. It is good if you have a tight budget and yet you want to experience eating in this classy and many to offer restaurant.

If you really want to relax, this is the best place for you. The ambience inside the restaurant is relaxing, calm and classy at the same time. It also gives the view of the famous Las Ramblas. You will see people and car passing by and thanks to its soundproof, you will not get distracted nor disturbed by them. 

It is also a good choice of restaurant for couples for it also gives a romantic vibes inside. And they have big table for family and friends. 

I would like to also give a point the smell inside the restaurant. They offer seafoods and sometimes, most of the restaurant I went to, I always smell something stinky that I do not like it. But CentOnze gives you a clean smell and vibes that you will not get irritated about.

Le Pop Cocktail Bar

CentOnze Restaurant do not just offer meals but they also have their different signature drinks that you should not miss!
Comfort Room

One of the many things I check in any restaurants is their comfort room. I can say based on my experience that it is really hard to find a restaurant with a clean comfort room. Good to say that CentOnze indeed has a clean comfort rooms. For sure it is because the restaurant is connected with Le Meridien Hotel which is a plus point for them.


Another tips for you, readers, you can have up to 50% discount in their A La Carte just by downloading ¨The Fork¨ on your mobile phones. By that, you will get notificated whenever they have promos.

Where to Stay in Boracay

Boracay is well known around the world for being a paradise. But because of Philippine Government´s move on preserving the beauty of Boracay, they only allow 6,000 tourists to arrive in Boracay per day. Aside from that, before entering the Island of Boracay, tourists should have their confirmed hotel reservation with them. 

The local government of Boracay with the Department of Tourism of the Philippines made a quality check for all the accommodations in Boracay. So if you accidentally booked to a non accredited hotel in Boracay, here are what you should do.

Boracay Island is divided into three station. From entering the island, it starts with Station One, Station Two and lastly, Station Three. Station Three, where you can find all the main water activities. In Station Two is where you can find everything, most of the restaurants, small shops, few activities. It is also the most crowded area. Station One is the most peaceful part and most of the accommodations here are a little bit expensive. 

Isla Gecko Resort

We booked in Isla Gecko Resort the same day as we arrived in Boracay. It was hard to find an accommodation based on your preferences but luckily, Isla Gecko Resort has one room left. 


Isla Gecko Resort is located in Station Two. We were lucky because we found a hotel in the middle of Boracay. It is at the back of D´Mall and walking distance from the shore. It is the best location specially if you are travelling with you friends and family because they are nearto everything. It is easy to access to any shops or restaurants in the area. 


2756.00 php / night

We booked a room that is good for 3 persons because I was with my fiancé and his sister. It is not cheap but I can say that the price is good for the quality of the room and its location. We booked on the spot so it was harder for us. 


Our room is quiet big for us. It has a big queen bed and an individual bed. The room is spacious with aircondition, flat screen tv, wifi, closet and minibar. Because of its size, it was not hard to move around even we were three persons. 


Their toilet was quiet small. They only offer a shower and the part of the toilet was easy to get wet. It would be nice if they make the toilet a little bit bigger and if they have bathtub.

They offer towers for all the guests and tissue paper. But the rest such as shampoo, conditioner and soap, you need to buy it.


Isla Gecko Resort has terrace, bar and they offer breakfast. The reception is open 24 hours and they were all kind and ready to answer all the inqueries. 

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Common Reasons for Delayed Flights

Travelling around the world is such an exciting experience. But still, it has pros and cons. And sometimes, not everything that we planned before our trip really happens.

While travelling, we have different choices on how do we want to get to a specific destination. There are choices such as: By air, by land and by sea. By air, we can go by airplanes. By land, we can go by trains and by buses. Lastly, by sea, we can go by boat or ships. 

Any of the choices above does not guarantee you that it will be the fastest way. It all depends on availability of the place you are coming from and going to. Take not that there are places that only allows airplanes or sometimes ships and buses. So it is better to plan it as early as possible so you can make the analization.

Have you ever got your flight delayed or worst, canceled? I know it really pissed us off specially if it will affect our plans. But you need to chill! Because it will not give any help. I met a lot of travellers who got pissed off and started shouting at poor airline or airport stuff. So with this blog, let me  enlighten a little bit your mind  with the common reasons for delayed flights.


Yes, you read that right.  Even in the sky, traffic happens. Specially if there are amount of planes departing and taking off. Sometimes, it takes 1 hour, or more than, for a plane to depart.


As we all know, the airplane that we are flying with comes from different places. Weather in our place is not the same as the weather in the place where the airplane comes from.

For example, the plane that we are waiting is from Alaska and that plane cannot fly due to bad weather in that place, so it will affect the airplane´s next flight. 

The same thing if there is a bad weather in our location, it will definitely affect our flight.


Crews are indeed important in any flight. But because of the reasons above: Traffic and weather, those indeed affect the crews. They will have to finish their responsibility from the previous flight they had because they will be able to go to the next one. 

Those are common reasons for delayed flights. So next time that you will travel, remind yourself of those reasons before you get mad to any crew / land crew. It is indeed important to be nice and relax in any situation. Remind yourself that all theses crews are just doing their job and making sure that you will be safe during the flights. Any persons from airline or airport dont deserve to be disrespected by any customers. 

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
