          Great hostel, staff and fellow travelers are warm and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable, I had a great time here and stayed much longer than I planned. Location is perfect too, there are always things happening just around the corner. Thank you Itaca!

          This morning it was hot hot HOT (36 degrees Celsius)! We decided to head by foot to the beautiful beach of Barcelona for a relaxing morning in the sun. It was about a half an hour walk from our hostel and Nathan got a sweet sweet tan (sunburn). I, being the smarter of the two put on sunscreen (Oooh Ha Ha). The beach was much like the beaches of …

          We started the day by doing our washing and hanging it out on our very handy peg-less washing line. We then met up with our tour guide for a free walking tour of Barcelona city. We then found out that free tours are not really free and you are asked to tip the tour guide at the end of the tour. Our tour guide took us around the city teaching us …

          Buenos Dias. It was another early start for us today, the bus from San Sebastián to Pamplona leaves at 5 am.

          ... we quite fancies seeing but they were not due on stage until 03:00 and Tony had a flight to catch in the morning because of work commitments so we returned to the city centre, saying our farewells because we were getting off at different stations. When JD & CC emerged from the Passeig de Gracia metro stop it was raining quite hard.

          ... an hour from our hotel. Once there, we were told the cable car station is closed. By this time, we had enough of walking - we were still tired from our flight. We found a cab to drive us up the hill for 10 euros.

          Once, we finally made it to the top, we went into the Joan Miro Museum (8.50 E). He was a Catalan/Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramist born in Barcelona. His work is very modern - surreal stuff. For example, he has one ...
