A wander around Barcelona

Other than England, I’d never been to Europe before.  So my first foray into Europe proper was Barcelona.  We got to spend a few days here prior to our Transatlantic cruise.

We stayed at a small hotel on La Rambla, right near the Gothic Quarter.  Barcelona is a fantastic city to visit.  Easy to get around and loads to do. Plus heaps of history around and below you, as we found when we visited The Museu d’Història de la Ciutat (Museum of the history of the city), which shows you the roman ruins below the modern city.

Anyway a few photos from our days in Barcelona.  Don’t ask me what these buildings are or where to find them, we just wandered around so who would know?  I don’t 😉

    • Only Sagrada Família and Park Guell. We had pickpocketers try it on but we always safety pin our money into our pockets in big cities anyway. We knew that it was known for it so were well prepared in advance 🙂

  1. Thanks for the comment and pickpockets! Got robbed!
    Thanks for the photographs. It’s like going on a vacation without leaving home?
