A wander around Barcelona (part 3)

So the last of my series on Barcelona around the Gothic Quarter.  If you ever get a chance to go to Barcelona, I highly recommend it, a beautiful city with loads of history and easy to get around. Don’t ask me what these buildings are, or where to find them, like I said, we just … Continue reading

Roman Graves at Plaça Vila de Madrid, Barcelona, Spain

Sometimes wandering around a strange city, with no particular place to go or thing to see, allows you to stumble upon the unexpected.  This is exactly what happened to us while visiting Barcelona.  I’m not sure where we were going or even where we had been on this particular day, but we happened to pass … Continue reading

A slightly surreal experience at Park Güell – Barcelona, Spain

Ah Barcelona!  My first experience of Europe (if you don’t count the UK).  We had a few days before our Transatlantic cruise in which to explore this warm, vibrant city.  One of the stops on our itinerary was Dr Seussland Park Güell created by the artist Antoni Gaudi.
