... the right track! By this stage we were starving but kept going to take some photos and admire the church once again. We found a restaurant just up the street and had a nice meal and a bottle of red :) Managed to get off the seats and walk on our really sore feet back to the hostel. Arrived home about 1am, just in time to get up at 4.30am to go catch a flight to collect Maddie in Rome!!

... we have a siesta in the afternoon, its hard to get to sleep at night. Now I understand the Spanish.
Yesterday, we woke up early to see Sangrada Familia. Last time, the queues were too long so we thought if we get there at opening time, we would have a short wait. We arrived around 9:15am, 15 minutes after opening time and the queue was already 3 hours long!!! Oh well, we tried. Note to self, book tickets online. We then ...
... us what our goals were for Spain. My number one was eat Paella (making mom and dad proud). It was so delicious!
Today, I went to work today. Then came back and participated in siesta. I'm like really really good at siestas. I"ve really developed my siesta skills since arriving. Eventually I awoke from my siesta and decided it was time to find the gym.
Don't applaud me yet.... ...
... spot. Very comical.
We walked back to sagrada familia and after lining up for 30 mins we went in. I couldn't believe my eyes, if you think the outside is spectacular the inside is even better. We were there for ages, went up one of the towers and explored every nook and cranny.
Boys had a quick kick across the road afterwards and we all enjoyed fresh falafel and lamb wraps bursting with garlic sauce and salad.
Yes, just another great ...
... people are friendly, they know we're not Spanish immediately and are usually forthright and helpful with their English.
Walking down town today we're really excited about what else we have to explore here. Tomorrow we'll set off again, probably looking for a park to give the boys a bit of a run.
Sorry....not too many photos today...I was too busy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Cristal Palace Barcelona
When we checked into the hotel (which is in a great location) we went up to the room which was tiny especially for a 4 star. The tiny window also looked onto a concrete wall!! We eventually after much drama got moved to a slightly bigger room. When I say bigger I mean about 2 foot bigger! We were still looking onto the concrete wall which also faced other people's bedrooms and hence a lot of noise. The room service was ok but the hotels were also very hot and the air conditioning wasn't working. We stayed in April which is a cold month so shudder to think about the room temperature in summer. Only thing this hotel has to offer is location. It is certainly not a 4 star. p.s.And especially don't stay if you booked with Abbey Travel in Ireland as you will then definitely get the small room! (I did see other rooms in this hotel that were a lot bigger).
A super hotel!
Just got back with my family from Barceleona-and 4 nites at the Cristal Palace. Excellent experience; from the marvelous upgrade they gave us at no extra cost to the wonderful breakfasts., and the very central location. The staff were professional and helpful (they even managed to get us the right sized taxi for all of our luggage, when we left for the airport..which was greatly appreciated as we had been taking 2 taxis up till then.=an expensive situation) I recommend this hotel and believe it deserves all five stars!
We've stayed 4 nights, super service in room 911 for those who like to catch some sun after walking around in a beautiful city. A big terrace, very quiet room, everything like it should be in a 4* hotel. We'll be going back....
