My Hen Do: Part(y) Two

Celebrating the single life of Miss Letley

Hen parties are becoming far more extravagant than our parent's generation could imagine. Whilst my Mum's involved a drink down the local pub with her closest girlfriends, I had once also scoffed at the extravagance of flying off for a weekend of Hen or Stag antics. However... (you knew there would be a 'but') given that my social circle are more difficult to diarise a meal with than having a slice of birthday cake with the Queen, I saw this as my opportunity to get everyone together. Slightly selfish I know but when you have as good a bunch of friends as I do and yet for work, geographical or other reasons you don't get to see them as often as you like, this 'hen party' status carries some cache and I wasn't about to miss my opportunity. What entailed were 4 bridesmaids, 9 months of planning, 11 hens, 3 days and 1 incredible Air BnB penthouse apartment overlooking beautiful Barcelona.

The pictures say it all …

  • Having my 4 bridesmaids scream "BARCELONA" to me outside the security gate at Gatwick airport to reveal the secret destination. 
  • Arriving at an exquisite penthouse in the centre of Barcelona and discovering a ridiculously incredible room terrace with lounge, 2 dining areas, hot tub and swimming pool. Not to mention 360 degree views of the city. Thank you Air BnB.
  • Drinking Champagne in the hot tub. 
  • Being stripped of my bikini and forced to skinny dip in the pool (although I'm not sure 'highlight' is an apt description for anyone!)
  • Order 8 litres of Sangria at 1am in a dodgy kebab shop restaurant and singing along to One Direction's  
  • Eating watermelon bleary eyed with a cup of tea and my hungover friends – the real life! 
One happy bride
One happy bride!
