... don't bother, it sucks), headed down to the beach - which was packed with people but much nicer than the club - and joined in for a game of volley ball with around 30 other people who were all having a crack, we then split a cab back to the hostel where I thought Dane would be happily tucked up in bed.

... train at Passeig de Gracia we made our way along the two blocks to our apartment. The two blocks became 4 then 5 then 6 as we wandered around in circles trying to find our apartment, but eventually we found it... Yes it's nice !!
