    Barcelona

    October 25, 2016 in Spain

    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!

    .....and sail away!

    April 18 in Spain

    I am pleased to report that today has gone smoothly. Our hotel was fairly basic but located in a great position being a very short walk from the major hub of the city. Thought it may have been noisy but it wasn't. Had time for another walk down La Rambles, this time with camera in hand for a few shots of the area. It seems the locals don't really get moving until 10am as the shops were still closed.

    We organised a taxi for 11am and it arrived at exactly 11am. Embarkation was not that busy and being "3* mariners" we were able to board earlier. Lunch, tour of the ship, welcome cocktail with the captain for return guests, unpack our bags, mandatory life-boat drill and dinner filled in the rest of the day. We intended to go to the evening entertainment but we were just so tired we decided to call it a day. Probably the only people that go to bed at 9.30pm on a cruise ship.

    Ocean is smooth, weather is fine and we are just arriving into Marseille for our first port of call. With a bit of luck will find WiFi hotspot to post this.

    Sensi Bistro

    April 17, 2016 in Spain

    #foodporn #limoncellohipster
    Zufällig sind wir auf dieses Restaurant gestoßen und es war vielleicht das beste Essen, das wir jeh hatten (sorry Osh)!

    Ein Rehabilitation sea bass cevice, pork ribs wie sie in Amerika schwer zu finden sind, Risotto das jedes Paella in den Schatten stellt, ne Salatsoße die Glücklich macht, ein Ententartar und ein Cheese Cake Crumble Postres, das schneller weg war als unsere Handycam auslösen konnte!

    Fushion Tapas zum #wälzen 😘

    Angekommen im Barrio Gotico

    April 15, 2016 in Spain

    Da sind wir! Es hat 32 Jahre gedauert bis ich das erste Mal nach Barcelona gekommen bin! Aber der erste Eindruck ist ziemlich cool.

    Unser "Inspired Apartment" ist auch sehr schön, einkaufen waren wir schon und ein paar Bier auf der Dachterasse gabs.

    Jetzt gehts dann Tapas Essen und Nightlife erkunden.

    Museum with Roman ruins below

    April 9, 2017 in Spain

    The walking tour guide recommended a visit to a nearby museum that has excavated Roman ruins down under the square we were standing in. It was also free entry from 6pm to 8pm so off I went. I went down the stairs to see a pretty special area of an excavated ancient fish processing plant. The remains of big round pottery urns were used to store fish. There were pillars from where the rooms stood and remnants of tile floors. Up above in an old church there was displays recreating the buildings below.Read more

    Barcelona, Spain

    January 18 in Spain

    Whitney and I loved Barcelona. Our highlights were visiting the Sigrada Familia, a church that has been under construction for almost a century and looks as if it were designed by aliens, visiting Park Güell which was designed by the renowned architect Antoni Gaudí, and watching a flamenco show (traditional Spanish dancing) while drinking delicious Sangria. We saw the sights of the city during a free bike tour and ate the local fare during a tapas tour. Our favourite Spanish dishes included seafood paella, patatas bravos, and pinchetos (small lavish bar snacks).Read more

    Barcelona, Spain

    August 23, 2017 in Spain

    This was our second time in Barcelona. We first walked the La Rambla promenade with its live statues. This was the site of the terrorist attack just days earlier. Our private guide told us that it was quieter than usual with relatively empty cafes. We stopped to pay our respects at several memorials. They were very moving and emotional. The people of Barcelona say that they are "fearless" and terror will not win.
    Our tour focused on Antoni Gaudi. We had seen La Sagrada Familia from the outside but going inside was amazing. Then we visited two other architectural marvels of his: The Park Guell community and the Le Pedrera apartments.
    We learned so much about Gaudi and now understand his work. He was truly a genius far ahead of his time.
