... our little escapade at the beach. How's life, buddy. Must be nice. Everyone riding bikes, getting fit. Taking in their lunch breaks, I'm guessing. Oh, and everyone here smokes! Everyonneee. I guess that airport room is a necessity not a pleasure. We had lunch at a little cafe where we shared a delicious sandwhich and headed home for a nap, a snack and more adventure ;) What I learned today: Spanish people love to indulge in their food, conversation and their leisure. "Americans. You ...
... decided to go to a shopping district called Las Ramblas but we were a little dissapointed. It was sooo touristy and the shopping wasn't very good, so we decided to go back to Mar Bella for the rest of the afternoon. So far we've been super lucky with the weather! It's gorgeous every day, despite being pretty hot it's really nice.

... The construction is expected to be finished in around 2030! The outside was fascinating with two of the three fašades finished. To the east is the fašade that depicts the birth of Christ while the western fašade shows the crucifixion, resurrection and ascension to heaven. When complete there will be a total of 12 bell towers (for the twelve apostles), 4 big towers (for the four evangelists) and one massive central tower for Christ himself.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBarcelo Raval Barcelona
We stayed in the barcelo for two night after deciding to stay in Barcelona a few extra nights. This hotel is lovely as far as hotels go, modern, quirky somehow very Barcelona.
The rooms were functional, although I wasn't overly fond of the pink lighting, it didn't bother me that much for a short stay. The rooftop with it's infinity pool is stunning and boast some of the best views over Raval and Barcelona.
The plaza Raval is in front of the hotel, which is a lovely place to eat on a hot evening, alongside more locals than tourists, which makes for a nice change as tourists are everywhere in Barcelona.
We enjoyed staying at this hotel for the 2 nights we were there, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer as I am sure it would become very small quickly. A great stop over hotel with an affordable price tag!
