Barcelona - Day 1June 30, 2017 in Spain
Our visit to Spain starts in Barcelona on beautiful warm sunny day.
After breakfast in our hotel, Melia Sarria, we spent the day walking through the streets of Barcelona.
We walked on three main streets. The first was Avinguda Diagonal, a street that, as its name suggests, diagonally cuts through Barcelona.
Then we walked down Rambla de Catalunya, which had a central walkway for pedestrians with one way streets for cars on each side.
This eventually became La Rambla, a similar walkway through the more historic part of town. The highlight was the food markets, where they sold all kinds of food from meat to seafood to fruit and vegetables to cheese and olives.
La Rambla took us all the way to the waterfront.
We returned by retracing our steps, stopping for tapas and paella on the way.
All in all a great day taking in this beautiful city, walking for 9 hours and around 20,000 steps according to my FitBit.Read more
