Bis in Barcelona
At the beginning of June Bis Recruit celebrated 15 years of trading. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Bis went to Barcelona!
We jetted off on a typical British summer afternoon in London trading the grey cloudy skies for the sun soaked city of Barcelona. We were lucky enough to be staying in the very plush, beach side W Hotel, where we were treated to spectacular views and out of this world rooms (especially Freddie who managed to bag himself a cheeky room upgrade!) The scene was set for a very fun weekend.
After a quick freshen up, there was no time to waste, Bis hit the road and set out to find an authentic restaurant where muchas cava sangria and delicious tapas were to be had. The highlight of this evening wasn’t the amazing dishes we ate or the glorious sangria we drank, but when Harriet (being a sucker for a sweet treat) ordered a ‘cookie’ dessert in excitement, only to be hugely disappointed when a stick of something loosely resembling a biscuit arrived accompanied by a huge jug of revolting apple liquor, needless to say her face was a picture.
On Saturday morning the team got up bright and early (sore heads in tow…) to visit ‘La Sagrada Familia’, it goes without saying how incredible the building was and we were all a little in awe of the level of detail. Can you believe it is still being built a 100 years on? After a little culture and a stroll down Las Ramblas it was time to hit the shops, sample some more sangria and laze by the pool.
That evening, it was time to celebrate our Bis Birthday by glamming up and heading to a restaurant handpicked by Chrys and Sue that put a quirky spin on classic tapas, the food was scrumptious and the company was even better, it was a fantastic night which resulted in us laughing so much poor Matt put his back out…..oh dear!
Sunday was spent lazing by the pool whilst curing big hangovers and soaking up the last of the sun before heading back home. We went out for some last minute gelatos and before we knew it the team was clambering on the plane back to London town.
It was a fantastic weekend and so much fun was had celebrating 15 years of Bis and our wonderful directors Chrys and Sue. We’ve included some photos of our favourite moments of the trip - enjoy!
