Half term and we escaped the autumn wind and rain for a couple of days, taking a short break in Barcelona. In summer, Spain is too hot for us Celtic types with our fair skin; however autumn sun and temperatures of 22-25 degrees suited us fine. So we enjoyed exploring La Rambla, the Old Town and the Port area. Didn't really do museums - teenager not keen - or see any of the Gaudi buildings. But lots of eating tapas, exploring the markets and people-watching. And a guitar music concert in a building which was decorated like a wedding cake. Will let the pictures do the talking today.
|The Square near our hotel: slightly dodgy area. Husband lagging behind us with bad ankle was approached by lady offering him a good time!|
|Walked to the beach. Teenager soaked her sore feet in the sea.|
|Colourful market stalls. So many varieties of mushrooms.|
