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.

... inside but the service was excellent and we proceeded to select our paella for lunch.

We checked out the old gothic quarter, toured around La Sagarada and Gaudi's famous architecture. We had a few meals and did some sightseeing with Mum's colleague Lloyd and ...

The sandy path tilted up and round and opened up onto an Alpine plateau. The sun sparkled and delicate almond blossom shivered from the trees. It was touched with magic. Spring lambs and 2dimensional goats grazed and we recounted our shared memories of Seale and Waverley Abby ...
... since I was checking out. It was 6:45, had to wake up the lady that runs the B&B and she kept asking me "You pay??" I paid her as soon as I got there, she's asked me 3 times since if I paid. I keep trying to show her the receipt but she doesn't remember the next time! lol Made it to the airport safe, once again public transport is absolutely wonderful. Just watching the sunrise waiting for my flight and day dreaming about the bread I'm going to eat for breakfast when ...
Slept in a little and after brekky took ourselves off to the "Gaudi Bike Tour". Alex was our guide and was brilliant. The bikes were comfy (makes all the diff. on a bike tour!) and he showed us really interesting examples of the architecture of Gaudi and other architects, finishing up at the famous Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, which is the main thing I wanted to see here. Enjoyed sangria at the Travel Bar ...
