My Endless Summer 俺のエンドレスサマー

Barcelona Ramen and surf バルセロナ ラーメン&サーフ


IMG_2940.JPG I was not sure how I drive down to Portugal whether I should go through Mundaka or Barcelona.

This time I chose to chill and do a sightseeing so I drove down to Barcelona. It came up to my mind after checking a messy wave in Biarritz.

Then I drove 7 hours straight to Barcelona from Biarritz and had a craving for Japanese food as I was trying to live cheap in france and got tired of cheap bread, cheese and ham. As a matter of fact, I lost weight while in france and got sick one time too. sleeping in car and getting sick combo is not much fun for traveler.


でフランスも1ヶ月以上いるのでそろそろ移動かなぁと思っていたところで、ビアリッツの波がオンショアでいまいちだったので、急に思い立ちバルセロナに行く事にしました。 正直 出発10分前まで何も考えていなかったけど、暖かいところに行きたいと思い ムンダカではなくバルセロナに向かうことに。

一気に7時間以上ぶっとおしで運転してビアリッツからバルセロナに到着。フランスでは食費を節約するために、格安スーパーでパンとチーズとハムに激安ワインという方法でしのいでいたので体重が落ちてかなり痩せました。 おもけに体調を崩してしまった日もあって、車中泊+体調不良はかなりきつかったです。

long queue in front of Ramen Hiro,  ラーメンHiroの行列



Miso ramen


Then, Ramen AKA Japanese soul food came up to my mind first.

I checked the internet and found one famous ramen shop in Barcelona and it turned out to be the best ramen in this trip.

Ramen Hiro

There was already a queue in front of the shop when I arrive there around 8PM. I ordered Miso Ramen, Gyoza(dumpling), and Rice ball.

Those food quality was surprisingly good. I could not stop eating and ended up ordering that much. Owner is a nice Japanese guy about the same age as me, I had a chance to have a small chat with him.

Also I found a good rest area on highway to sleep.

It was just before hitting Barcelona, that place got shower, wifi and restaurant.

Next morning, I did a bit of sightseeing, checked Sagrada Familia and city center area. Then I went to the beach just to chill and check out nudists but found people with surfboard.

というわけで今回もお決まりのラーメンを食べたいという気持ちがムクムクと沸き上がり、ネットで検索して評判のラーメン屋 ヒロ というお店に行く事にしました。



みそラーメン+餃子+おにぎり等を頼みました 食べまくり。

クオリティはとても高く、日本で食べてもすごく美味しいと思います。今回のトリップでは自分の中ではナンバー1 ラーメンにランク付けされました。


そしてその後はバルセロナにくる途中に見つけた、ハイウェイのレストエリアまで戻って就寝 このレストエリアはシャワー wifi レストランも付いていてとても過ごしやすかったです。

W hotel in the back, and it is enough lights to surf at night in Barceloneta




Yes, it is Barceloneta main beach, Mediterranean sea, yet you can still surf.

There was a parking underground near main beach but I was bit nervous about leaving all my stuff in the car and going surfing as I never want to go through that nightmare again.

Then, I found 5 star hotel W hotel at the end of the beach and used that parking lot for surfing. pricing was about the same as underground parking and it got many CCTV, looked a lot safer so I parked there and surf.

Waves were small, crumbling wave but weather was sunny and water was warm, some people were surfing in boardshorts in November! love this sunny and dry weather!

ビーチの向いの道路の地下に公共駐車場があるのですが、自分の荷物を全て車の中に置いてサーフィンに行くのは危険に感じたので、同じビーチの南側の端にある5スターホテル W ホテルの駐車場を使うことにしました。 料金は同じくらいで、監視カメラもたくさんあり安全そうだったのでこっちにしました。

波はタラタラな日本のようなビーチブレイクでしたが、天気は良く気温もとても暖かく 中には海パンでサーフィンしている人も 11月ですよ! 最高の気候!楽しめました。

And in front of surf break, I found around 10-20 nudiests there. It was quite a surprise for me as I expected nudiest beach to be really quiet and remote place but it was the Barceloneta, the busiest beach in Barcelona with lots of people walking by.

After surf, I walked around city center and had some tapas, then went to Ramen Hiro again.This time, I found a parking lot which is for free between 9PM-8AM on the same block as Ramen Hiro so I drink a lot and crashed in the car. Next morning, a guy on tow truck knock on the window and woke me up as it was already 9AM!! close call!

Next, I will go further down along the southern coast of Spain to Portugal!


そして夜はタパス食べ歩きして後に締めで、またしてもラーメン屋 ヒロへ すぐ近くの駐車場が夜9時ー朝8時まで駐車可能だったのでしこたま飲んでそのまま爆睡。朝9時近くまで爆睡してしまい、レッカー車のおじさんに起こされるハプニング。
