Walking down the Rambla

A travel blog entry by christianbjork on Sep 21, 2013

After having a delicious buffet style breakfast (double bowls of corn flakes and chocolate milk for me, among some other yummy things), we had a nice walk down beautiful Passeg de Gracia (probably misspelled, don't quite speak Catalan - the main language in Barcelona/Catalunya), past the weird, but interesting Gaudi buildings along the way. We …

Day 6 - Barcelona

A travel blog entry by chadspurgeon


... we're all used to seeing Picasso's more famous paintings which, in all honesty, don't speak to me at all. What's interesting is that he didn't always paint in this weird, modern way. When he was growing up, he was a classically trained artist and first found success painting very realistic works - mainly people. As he got older and eventually moved to Paris was when he adopted the Cubist (aka weird) style that he's best known for. According to Picasso (and I'm ...

Im in Spain!

A travel blog entry by shantie

... found it! Yay! Day 1: Buy sunscreen!! Get laughed at by the guy at the counter, "why you need sunscreen? It cold outside! Only 15 above, it cold!" Visited with him for a while, half I'm English half in Spanish. He gave me a free soda, since if it's 'hot enough' for me to need sunscreen it must be to hot for me here and I would need something cold to drink! Walked to sagrada familia! Waited in line for an hour, bought a ticket which told me that ...

Spanish cooking class & Football match

A travel blog entry by vbhughes


Had a great day starting with a market visit that included being shown some of the landmarks close by such as ruins. There were only four of us doing the class so it was really personal and plenty of opportunity for us all to be involved. We only had one funny moment when we were burning the sugar on top of the Creme Catalan when somebody waved the torch around saying 'how do I turn this off?' otherwise disaster ...

No Direction Home

A travel blog entry by funkymonk

... cameras. At last, Europe. Mellow sunshine, architecture, history, pretty piazzas and relative safety. I felt a weight lift as I slid my sunglasses over my eyes and tapped the iPod's buttons to find Pumped Up Kicks. Just wonderful.

I spent most of time doing passive sight-seeing. A few parks, monuments, statues, etc. There are a few different museums I have penciled in for different corners of Europe so I don't want to get all 'museum'd ...

    The rooms were a lot smaller than I expected, but it was also my first hostel. Friendly staff, very safe, clean beds, towels, bathrooms, etc. Only complaint was it was so hot in the rooms! But when we returned the second day they had placed 2 fans in our rooms. Very pleased with my stay!
