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 ...
... like the cool kids. I'm not sure if I buy into that story, but its worth sharing.
To say that Antoni Gaudi was obsessed with designing and building this basilica is an understatement, Sagrada Familia is his most famous and still unfinished work. He ended up moving into the church and living there until his untimely death in 1926 when only a quarter of the work was complete. Work is still ongoing and the projected date ...
... towns and even in summer there were still small amounts of snow on the higher peaks. We drove through the 10km tunnel border crossing and popped out on the other side in France. It's still such a funny feeling jumping so quickly between countries and seeing the houses, language and food change instantly. We kept our eye out for bears and eagles as we wound down the river road, stopping to buy some 'fromage' (we missed French cheese!). We arrived to meet Sean and Annika ...
