We are going to chill in Barcelona
After the exhaustion and excitement that was Paris we felt we deserved some rest and relaxation
Things we did besides lay on the beach include:
La Sagrada Familia - so beautiful. It was worth just walking around (it costs 20 euros to enter, eek) but, it was amazing just to see it. It's very very tall and ornate and it's still not completed. It'll be finished in the next 30-80 years. It's a modern day marvel.
Park Guell - this was more than I expected! An ENOURMOUS park with such organic and amazing architecture. Jake insisted we go here because he had skated in the park a million times in a video game, so we had to see it in person. Well, I see why it was in a video game, it was awestriking.
But, really, the best part of the day was hanging out with old and new friends. We met Jane (again!) and Drew, who graduated with me from Ole Miss. It's such a small world to see such familiar faces in such faraway places
Meet enjoyed, thoroughly a ten euro meal of steak near the beach and then cruised the plazas by night.
We've decided, as long as we have Maybie with us, we could definitely move to Barcelona.
The city is clean, welcoming and laid back. The food and wine is good and the people are kind.
Now on to the next few days of intensive train travel.
