Universitat Rovira i Virgili--The beaches are north of town. Avoid pollution from the town's larger shipping port (one of the biggest in Spain) by walking a way up the beach. There is a nice walk following the shoreline, about 6-7 km long, where you ...

... escaping, but thought nothing more of it. Luckily we were close to the hotel so we kept driving without noticing the flat tyre. When pressing the button for them to let us into the carpark a man on a bicycle came up and told us our tyre was flat. We got inside and then started putting two and two together - but who would want to slash our tyres? The concierge dude told us that apparently this is a common thing that happens to tourists where one man will slash the tyre ...

Yes folks, after 22 hours in the air and about 6 sitting at airports waiting to get into the air, we're in Barcelona. Not much to tell as yet - we hope to do some exploring tomorrow so don't worry there'll be some really interesting tales to come. In the meantime, here are a couple of pics taken at Athens airport on our way though. We both liked the name of the local Internet supplier .....

... memorabilia!! As a side note – I am not really a big shopper. For example I’m not a shoe girl, like my sister, at all. She always has the most beautiful shoes and can’t get enough of it. And I always see people buying all these random things on trips. I’m more of a sentimental – it- has –to –have –value –and – meaning – kind of girl. So far, I haven’t bought myself anything in Barcelona. On the one hand ...

    The hotel staff was very patient with us. There was over 100 American students staying there. We stayed two nights. I know for a fact that 90% of us CEA students went out and got as hammered as possible because its legal to drink here at 18. The rooms themselves were spacious. In our room there was a mini-bar, a TV with cable, a big shower, his/her personal stalls, and a hairdryer. I would definitely stay there again.
