DAY 26 – BARCELONA

We were both excited about going to Barcelona, we both like Gaudi’s architecture and we were like children at Christmas time, therefore it was up early and on the road by 06.30.

Once again the answer was to just park on the pavements, the traffic was extremely heavy around La Sagrada Familia even at 09.00, the morning rush hour traffic in Barcelona was better that I expected, the drivers were very disciplined and hardly a car horn was sounded.

Inside the Cathedral is one of Gaudi’s original drawings on the wall, its been almost a hundred years in construction and the builders think they might finish in another 16 years time.

I had a laze in the sun whilst Linda wandered around.

We navigated out of Barcelona by using the Sun once again and camped just South of Barcelona near the town of Tarragona at a very up market campsite that we stumbled up on, 20 Euros a night, but it had its own private beach.

We thought this would be a good place to hang out for a while, Linda can do some laundry and it gives Jaq and Lin time to catch us up.

    • He was indeed a genius, shame he could not have lived longer to see his project finished.

  2. Nice photos, how was the riding in Barcelona?

    Stan

    • Hi Stan,

      The riding was good in the city, the Spanish are very careful and disaplined drivers, very crowded in Barcelona as you can imagine, but no crazyness.

      Cheers
