Location is very good, very close to beach, and beachside cafes/restaurants, 15-20 min walking distance to train station and old town. Hotel is very nice for a 2 star, with just the stairs looking a bit tatty. Room was clean, but was not cleaned in our stay, despite us putting the please clean room sign out (although this was after about 2pm). Tap water is horrible in Barcelona area - but bottled water cheap to buy. Breakfast fine - ham, croissants, squash, coffee, hot bread, butter, jam, cereals, drinkable water! Was a bit miffed when we were not allowed on the rooftop terrace at about 6pm. We wanted to buy a drink in the downstarirs bar and take it up, but they said we weren't allowed as they had sprayed some mozzie spray... Well this is fair enough for 30 mins, but they said it was toxic all night, which for an open air terrace was somewhat surpsising!! Downstairs is ok for drinking, but was very cold as is in shadow in the afternoon and we could see that lovely sun on the unusable terrace - madness!! I went up to terrace during the day to take a peek and it is really good. However, the staff made up for this annoyance by letting us check out late on the final day. We had been at a wedding, so didn't get in til 6am, so the extra time granted was very welcome and we are incredibly grateful to the staff for this.

... got to the first electricity pylon, but this gave us fantastic views of the sea right across the bay.
You could see where there had been a fire right across the hillside, and only ground cover was growing - the trees hadn't recovered yet.
There were ...
... 8230;..but no need, you just drive straight on through! To say we were uneasy about driving in Spain was definitely an understatement. The road signs, traffic lights etc all take a bit of getting used to and we were keen to get to our destination as quick as possible. Paul was quite surprised to notice a large ‘supermarket’ on the side of the road just across the border advertising ‘toys for grown ups’, ...
... signal has been poor in most of the caravan sites - think we had better internet in Cambodia ! Another huge pool and the weather has reverted back to glorious with temperature around 28/29 each day :-)
Took the bus to Barcelona, my third time there but Kevins first. I'd forgotten how much I love Barcelona - a beautiful, bustling city with loads to see and do, wide streets and squares with fountains everywhere and that's before you see the ...

*******Dad should not read this post********
In hindsight this part of our trip is funny, but at the time it was absolutely not. As previously mentioned, I relinquished my control and allowed my friend Leah to plan this part of our two-week trip (NEVER AGAIN). So when she told me we were couch surfing in Barcelona, which she had done before in the USA, I was skeptical but thought it would be cool to ...
... on the map so after a few hours of walking we managed to make it down to the beach to see some good and some not so good sights! Let us just say that some people were never meant to wear a g-string bikini with no top on!!!! The beach was all pebbles and broken shells, which, of course is nothing on our beautiful Aussie beaches!!! That night we got to go to a Flamenco show, it ...
