Yesterday we packed our bags and began our fall migration to the United States, but this year we have a few detours planned, the first being three days in Barcelona!
Lars and I have passed this way before, but this is the first time we've stopped to see some of the sights.
Our first order of business was the return of our …
... predominantly sold fish ( surprising that being right next to the sea) and Jill doesn't like fish so we had to head into town for something else. We meander through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and have a meal in a small Italian, Jill has carbonara and I go for the tagliatelle with lobster. I know I have a reputation as a food snob but I was a little worried when half a lobster arrived on one plate and the pasta on another, I was going to have to crack the lobster ...
... will be 18 towers when it is finished and hundreds of sculptures as decoration.
We caught a pre-booked lift up one of the towers, but then had to walk down a narrow spiral staircase inside one of the adjoining towers – all 400 steps.
What is slightly bizarre is they are already doing renovation work on some of the original building – now more than 100 years old – alongside current ...
... and I have avoided being stung by them until now. I remember I packed antihistamines so we rummage through the bags to find these. I have water so I quickly take some. I look at my arm which is starting to swell GREAT. What else could go wrong.
A second bus arrives but this will not fit us all in and there is still around 50 passengers left standing on the street. We are standing waiting when a station attendant tells us to come and catch the train to Port Bou and then we can ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAC Hotel Sants by Marriott Barcelona
We had a very nice room but it overlooked the train station and in that square was a carnival which went on until about 2 a.m. the noise came right into the room and made it difficult to sleep. we were one of the last ones into the hotel that night so they would have been willing to change our room but there were no rooms available that were away from the noise. otherwise, it was a good place to stay.
