Travel Blogs from Barcelona
Today is our full day in Barcelona. We began the day with breakfast, at which point we were presented with what will possible be the best muffins of the whole tour. They were fresh, and warm, and soft, and had that homemade taste. Beautiful! I will definitely be packing a few for our bus trip tomorrow. After the muffins, we piled …
... pretty hot but the beach is crowded so we are happy to sit in the shade. We catch the tourist bus back to the main area & spend sometime browsing in shops before returning to the hostel. After a brief rest & change of clothes we catch the train to la sagrada familia. We have tickets for 7:30pm. After a brief wait we experience the most different cathedral so far. Stone, stained glass but simpler & less gold than the ...
... the Mecca for Chris, and along the way saw the house of bones (Casa Batilo). Upon arrival at Zara, perhaps the most shocking thing of the trip happened... And that was Chris spending about 10 minutes total in the store before storming out. Was really like telling a child there was no Santa, as she was so disappointed. We then when went home via the main fountain, and to see the sights of Spanish Friday night shoppers along the malls surrounding La Rambla. Quick stop home to ...
... it wasn't the right place and showed the map again. He then acted as if we'd told him the wrong thing, and started driving in the opposite direction. We were then cutting it extremely fine to catch the bus as we had no idea where we were and about 5 minutes to be at the coach. We were all anxiously watching the clock and wondering what we would do if we missed it, because we had no name for the place we were going or an address, and no way of contacting ...
... from the British guys behind us was the best.Basically stayed at the hostel that night.
Went on a hike to Montjuic led by another guy from the hostel. It was probably the funniest tour I've been on and it started with going in to buy beer. The view was absolutely gorgeous from the top and well worth the hike. The rest of the day was spent wandering the Gothic quarter, where we also somehow managed to see one of the very few people we knew in the city.

Amazing Muffins! The muffins at breakfast is what I took away from this place. If a place has good food, its all good in my books. The hotel was lovely though. The rooms was huge, a big bathroom, I believe we had bath, free wi-fi, a common room type area in the lobby with a bar attached. We didn't have time to explor what was around our hotel as we we driven around 20 mins into the city centre. There did seem to be cafes, and shops etc on the way.
