Took the easy A1 bus from the airport to the central square in Barcelona, about a thirty minute ride for about 4€ each. Way cheaper than a cab and well kitted out for luggage!

Then we called it an early night at 10pm because we had some packing to finish up.
Hope you're enjoying this blog! It's fun for me to keep track of all our activities.
