Stadtbummel mit Regenschauern
Lovely sunrise from our room....then took the funicular and then walked to the summit and then back down to the monastery. ..about 2 hours walking...amazing views as the mountain Is on Its own so really sticks out.....1200 m asl...almost from sea level. Saw the Pyrenees....now nees are saw from all the down.
Ross and I had a wonderful time in Barcelona! We went and saw Park Guell and the famous Sagrada Familia. We biked around the city and enjoyed a meal by the beach! We also didn't mind the warm weather 😊
Although we visited Barcelona before, we wanted to make a quick stop there to visit our friend Alex. It's always nice to have a chance to meet up with friends along the way and is even nicer to have a local take you to the best places in town.
Alex took us to enjoy some tapas and sangria our first night there which were really delicious! And the next day Mitch and I spent walking around to our favorite places we had visited while there last time. Our favorite place in the city is the La Sagrada Familia a cathedral built originally by the famous architect Gaudi. The cathedral which is still being finished today displays Gaudi's work of modernism which is pretty detailed and amazing, unlike any cathedral we've seen in Europe!
It was a quick stop but a fun one which made us appreciate and like the city even more this time!Read more
Hello from Barcelona. Been having a great time here, the city is so beautiful and the people are great. Sad to leave but time to go for the ferry to Morocco. I've been playing about with my new camera hence the pics
Went for a run to this 1753 castle. Great views. Tried to circumnavigate by running.....but got a bit walled out....later discovered I had drifted into a no entry zone....possibly where they do the 4wd tours.....which I now have done.....For free.
40 million litres of water stored in cisterns underneath. 6,000 troops could live here.
Amanda's least favourite comment from Phil after a tiring day wandering streets and climbing stairs... 'I need some exercise'. Here are a few shots from those exercise trips. Note the street sellers who are everywhere (along with the beggars). The beach is totally human made for the 1992 Olympics. Columbus could never have envisioned the changes in transport technology..... An amazing adventurer.
Some anti tourist sentiment especially as the council has decided to charge 8 euro pp to enter the Gaudi section of Guell park...locals as well. So some interesting notices....Capitalism converts travellers into tourists....food for thought. Some great street performances and we found a beautiful park this afternoon that was our first green grass seen....Other parks have been clay and brown....This park kept green by the sign attached. A couple of signs I couldn't work out.Read more
