Barcelona day 2 - 8th April 2008 @ 8:40 pm «   »

Location: Spain : Barcelona day 2

We started the day with a stroll up the La Rambla and on towards some of Gaudi´s well known buildings after which we moved on the Sagrada Famillia and had a quick picnic lunch.

By then we were absolutely bushed and had to take the Metro to Park Guell (with more of Gaudi´s creations). Little did we know we still had to climb a small mountain to get there! We didn´t realise the hangover from 2 days worth of travelling would still be with us.

We came back to the hostel for a quick break before making another trip to the Waterfront and the Parc de la Cuitadella. At that stage we were starving again and treated ourselves to a pre-birthday dinner at a very nice little Spanish Tapas Restaurant on the main street.

We are off to Rome tomorrow, leaving Barcelona at 08:25 for another 25 hour trip.
