We had a great trip! Andrew and Chelsea encouraged me to blog about it and share some pics, so that is what I’ve done. This first blog entry is about our adventures in Barcelona.
Barcelona is a beautiful city, with lots to see and enjoy. During our first couple of days there we used the Hop on Hop off bus that was included in our vacation package – to get the lay of the land. During our stay we also used the fine metro to get around and did a lot of walking.
Many of the sites we saw were designed by Antoni Gaudi - Barcelona’s main Modernista architect. The Sagrada Familia is the most famous, and we enjoyed exploring it inside and out. There were also lots of other unusual things to see, like a large sculpture by Joan Miro entitled, "Woman and Bird". I can see the bird, but where's the woman? (Yup, Mandrew's dad makes penis jokes, too).
