Barcelona: We went on Aer Lingus through Dublin - had to actually go through immigration and security again. I wanted to go through Ireland! But we ended up in Barcelona without JD's bag. So on Sunday, there was nothing open and no place to look for clothes. So we did what the Barcelonian's do on Sunday - had coffee and rolls at a cafe - walked around - had lunch & beer at a cafe, spoke in Spanish - read a book - took a siesta - had dinner and wine at a cafe.....a very relaxing day. We have seen more dogs here walking around with owners in two hours than we did the whole time in the UK.
Yeah! - the bag arrived, so we spent the day at the beach, after coffee and a french egg breakfast sandwich at a cafe. Then we had tapas & cava at a cafe after the beach. JD is having a great time talking with the waiters and cab drivers in Spanish. Although Catalone is a mix of Spanish, French & Italian - they can communicate and love to talk with him!
Explored Barri Gotic & Las Rambla - full of
too many tourists. So we went back to Avenue Diagnal. Really like the area we are staying at. There are a lot of little cafes, nice hotel, nearby shopping and very little English speaking!
