Our first dinner at El Castel. You will note that our whole trip will revolve around food and wine...as it should be!
So from the El Prat Aeroport, we took the L77 bus to Sant Boi about a 25 min ride. And only 189 metres to the hotel...Up hill. Robin documented the "ascent" every few metres...
... loved to see that! We walked back to the hotel, did some grocery shoppings and went to back. In the middle of the night I was being wakened, my grandmama fell ill. She had to throw up a lot... Everything she ate came out that night and in the morning she wasn't feeling much better. But... I would not recommend the bus tour for anyone, it was fun, don't get me wrong, but it takes you forever to get somewhere and you can also simply take the metro... It's even ...
... we headed back to the bar for the pub crawl where we met a few people. All I can say is I've never felt so young in my life. Usually I am older than everyone, but the crowd consisted of a 40-something couple, a bachelor party (30 year olds), and a few other 30 year olds. That's not old or anything, but on a pub crawl I did expect a bit of a younger crowd. It turned out we could all hold our alcohol better than the bachelor because he was later kicked off the bus for vomiting ...
... here, Hostel One Parelelo, is awesome. The rooms are awesome, there's a balcony adjoining the room, the staff cook us a massive dinner every night, they're friendly, and the people here are awesome.
During dinner, I heard a voice that I recognized. I turned around and Britnie had finally arrived. She told me her story of being stuck in Milan, and we spent the rest of the night catching up and exchanging travel stories.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This place reminds me of my grandparents state in Mexico City. The view of the city is awesome; the building has a great history and dates back to 801! The service has been very good, our server Pablo has bent over backwards to deliver a couple of cold Moritz beers, antipasto platers with Manchego cheese, Iberic ham and Terra Nostra wine. Dinner later at the outdoor dinning room was Salmoralejo (Gazpacho), antipasto platter with cheese, prosciutto, endives, anchovies, etc. porc "old style" with peppers and tomatoes, and a fish platter with red peppercorns, fruit and vanilla ice cream for dessert. More of the Terra Nostra chilled tinto and two espressos cortados con leche! Very nice indeed!
