Sunny Spain..

... the apartment safe and sound. After checking in we decided to go explore La Rambla which was about a half an hour walk from the apartment but it was meant to be the central part of Barcelona so we were keen to see it. Once at La Rambla we started stopping at sights along the way including Placa de Catalunya which was a courtyard that had sculptures and fountains, La boqueria markets and we even walked all the way down to the waterfront.

The waterfront was beautiful, ...

Finally, I head home. So nice to be resting peacefully.

Thankyou for your calls, sms, comments etc... before we flew out. They put a broad smile on our faces. Thankyou Lina and Roche for meeting us at Tullamarine airport before we departed. It was a very pleasant impromptu surprise.
