15.08.2007 - 19.08.2007
After working in London for a couple of months (and Charlie´s minitrip to Eastern Europe with her mama) we regrouped and arrived in sunny Barcelona the start of our European adventures.
On the first day we did a tour of Gaudi´s Barcelona starting with Casa Battlo, the ¨Most amazing house you have ever been in¨with the ¨most amazing room¨and ¨sink you will never forget¨- according to the audioguide woman.
It was actually pretty amazing and so was Sagrada Familia - the Cathedral that is still being built today after many decades. We then walked to the Hospital he designed and Park Guell with its awesome mosaics and views over the city.
The next day we took a day trip to Tarragonna, the Roman capital of Spain.
It was leading up to festival time so there were decorations everywhere.
Tarragona was beautiful with roman ruins around every cobblestoned corner and a massive amphitheatre overlooking the sea.
That night we decided to head to the local festival and experienced our first sangria fuelled night the festival was fun but the sangria was awesome!
We stumbled home in the wee hours only to discover that LEON had lost the door code to our hostel so thanks to Woods´belly we had to spend a night on the marble waiting for someone to let us in.
Leon has not yet been forgiven...
We also visited the Gothic area of the city, wandered down las Ramblas and sampled the market food.
So far loving the cheap tapas and set menus.
