I was invited to a glamorous blogging night out at Aspasios Apartments in plaça Catalunya. You know I love to learn new things so I decided to attend.

The first thing that attract my attention was the name Aspasios, so I had to ask what it meant. Aspasios means welcome in Greek, what a lovely name for an apartment as you need to feel welcome, just like home.

The schedule of the night was: Cocktail in the terrace while listening to a live group of music called Dócil, very nice music, it created a very relaxing atmosphere. I loved the opportunity to mingle with friends that I haven't seen on a while. I spoke with Alex from blogdebarcelona.com who gave me good advice about Bangkok and Chiang Mai, very useful for my recent trip to Thailand.

We had a chat with the girls: Mariana Calleja from mytravelthirst.com and Patricia Cuni frommadaboutravel.com. And also seen known faces from the TBM: Daniel from viajares.es and Aitor from viajarcomeryamar.

I also met new faces of the Barcelona blogosphere: Gil from Altair the well known travel spanish magazine and Say Queen a fashion blogger. All of this chat with some cava and tasty snacks while playing with our new uniform of the night: a special badgeCamaloon created for the Aspasios blogging night out.

This was only for starters, we went into the appartment building to have a learning session about Hootsuite, we could learn how to take the most of this tool and the options we have. Is always good to learn something new!!

We had an amazing dinner by Catering Hepburn, I loved the name, is cool, isn't it? See some of the delicious dishes we tasted.

Everything was held in the apartments, they were gorgeous, some of my blogger friends stayed the night and explained wonders about it. But only seeing them I just wanted to stay, very large spaces, designed furnite and the wow factor, when you get into a room and say Oh my, this is gorgeous. Unfortunately, I could not stay for the night but I shall try it myself soon!!
