    Our First Night Out

    March 4 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Found a really cool bar about 5 minute walk from our apartment. Rock n Roll, Good food & drinks.

    Loved this place. The drinks were strong & a nice serving size. I rarely go to bars, but this place was a lot of fun. They had classic rock music blasting while playing the videos onscreen by the bar. Service was fast & friendly. Bartender made very good drinks. Waitress was also helpful with our food order.

    Food was very good. My friends burgers were juicy & flavorful. The spicy sauce w/ the potatoes was good. I got the smaller portion of the nachos. Serving size was huge. Had enough for lunch the next day They were extra cheesy how I like it

    Made it to our Air BnB, our home for the week

    The place is old, but very well maintained & clean. Our host PePe was very helpful & friendly.

    We're staying in a nice neighborhood with alit of caffes and bars. Also a nice looking park across the street. We walked around for a bit and eat our 1st Spanish meal. The shrimp was tasty, but the rest was off. Food to oily and salty for meRead more

    La Paradeta

    February 13, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Nos animamos y lo acompañamos a papa a comer mariscos. 

    Elegimos de la pescadería: gambas, mejillones, pulpitos, calamares y una langosta. Los cocinaron para nosotros y nos animamos a comer de todo. 

    Para Matias lo mejor fueron los pulpitos, y para mí la langosta. Obvio después de las rabas.

    The rooftop of Casa Mila us a unique piece of architecture/art. It contains different elements: skylights, stair wells, ventilation towers and chimneys. All open to your own interpretation. Some have been finished using broken tiles, stones, marble and glass.

    Check out these strange shapes and you decide what they represent

    Day 2 - Barcelona Greets Us

    October 28, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The flight was uneventful and clearing customs was a breeze. We landed on time at 9:00, to a sunny day of 15. The weather here is unseasonably warm so we were told to expect 20-22 degrees each day. Perfect tourist weather.

    We managed to find our way to the Metro (subway), at the airport and were able to take it to within 500 ft of our hotel. I've earned my good planning badge already and it's only day two!

    Check-in isn't until 2:00, so we found a place for lunch and dined outside, awesome. The no sleep is starting to take it's toll so we've decided to relax on the rooftop. One of us is already loudly napping, think I'll do the same

    Here's the view

    Day 3 - Upcoming Site

    October 29, 2017 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Long day today, but got oriented to the city and saw lots of interesting things. Dinner was at the top of the old Bull Arena, which has been turned into a shopping center. I'll visit there later. Below are a few picks of the evening sites.

    To the left of the fountain and past the tall pillars lies a castle of some sort. It wasn't on the list of thing to do, but maybe later in the week. The pool is on a hotel rooftop, much nicer than ours.

    Big day tomorrow, bought tickets for Sangrada Familia and Casa Mila. Will also see Casa Batlo and Casa Amatler. Bryan will join me after lunch and we hope to get to the Piccaso Museum, the Chocolate Museum and the Columbus monument. Below are a few picks of tomorrow's attractions.

    It's going on 11:00, here so my turning in. Finished the day with 24,140 steps, that covers the wine and ice cream I think
