... can so easily download books from my Smoky Hill Library! We had a pleasant trip on a faster train yesterday and arrived in Barcelona about 2 pm. We settle into our hotel, had lunch and decided to walk what we thought was about 2.5 miles to the Sagrada Familia. We ended up logging about nine miles, round-trip! The Sagrada Familia is architect Antoni Gaudi's most famous and awe-inspiring work. He labored on it for 43 years, from 1883 until his ...
... so long in the heat of the day and you were not allowed to climb the spiral anymore so we spent time walking around and taking pictures from every angle. I particularly enjoyed the older facade with the nativity scene, Christmas tree and the look of the stone as if snow was settling all over the archways. Just so fascinating. It apparently is meant to have 12 spires one for each go the 12 apostles. We ...
... the blog. Andy has just arrived with our lunch! The train journey to Seville was 5 hours. Luckily we had Andy's laptop so we could watch movies.

... to the city of Barcelona. Gaudi lived in this park for 20 years.
The park was declared a UNESCO world site in 1984.
It was free to visit this park.We left at 2 pm when all the Saturday Barcelona crowds arrived.
On the way home we stopped at the casa Viva which is another well know Gaudi building.
As the queues were long and the price was high we just admired it from the outside.
... bottle of wine it was soooooo good. I know my stomach thanked me once again.
Back to the room, I ran a hot bath in that beautiful Jacuzzi tub so I could at least try to relax for the last few hours I have in Spain. I brought the rest of my wine from dinner to my room and was in a state of total relaxation. Belly was full and the bath was soothing. I just gave up on packing. I'll finish in the morning I am now contemplating on staying one extra day.
Peace and Blessings
