Great location next to a metro stop, and only a 2-minute walk to Placa Catalunya. Extremely varied and generous breakfast by Spanish standards, with excellent coffee, assorted fruit and pastries, cereal, juice (instant), Spanish omelet, and sandwiches. The rooms have a modern decor, but the renovations were poorly done. Nice staff.

And I don't just mean topless girls. I mean, I saw a tremendously brave old fella, wandering. The shoreline bwith his old fella out. Of course, there was nothing else for it. We took photos. And thus, the legend of the naked man began. Had I thought the would speak English, and had ...
Bill had heard that San Sebastian in Spain was a fantastic place to visit so on this recommendation we headed there. We were not disappointed. It had lovely beaches and the weather was quite warm. We watched people taking surf lessons. The waves were not large in comparison to our beaches but large enough to surf. Great for beginners.
The town centre, like all old towns ...
... this to get over to Sagrada Familia...which is where the crowds were hiding. We didn’t have too long of a wait to get in, but it was very worthwhile even with a wait in line. This basilica was designed and started by the architect Gaudi. It has been under construction for over a century but isn’t completed yet. It’s a modern, Gothic-style building and is very impressive. It is extremely ornate ...
