Arrival in Barcelona!

No more planes...

sunny 30 °C

It took us 35 hours in transit but we are finally here and soooo glad to be off the plane(s)! We have been in Barcelona for three days now and have only just got over the jet lag today. Its so nice here though that it is impossible not to enjoy yourself, even if you are jet lagged! We have had three perfect days in the sunshine and have one more before we set off down the coast with our backpacks. We have really set ourselves up well here. We have a great apartment right in the middle of things. It has a fantastic balcony that looks out over a great little street in the El Born area. Each morning we get up and have breakfast on the balcony in the sunshine followed by a stroll to the market where we have coffee (yum!) and fresh baked goodies. We have been enjoying buying local meats and cheeses and having picnics in the sun, drinking plenty of beer and enjoying the night life. Last night we went out in true Barcelona style. We stayed at the apartment drinking and snacking on tapa till 8.30pm before heading out to some bars. They do things late here! Even at that time there werent very many people out. We had a great meal in a tapa bar just around the corner from where we are staying. It is in a little side street, just perfect. We went on a bit of a bar crawl after that and by the time we were heading home there were finally lots of people out on the streets! We are loving our second trip to Barcelona. We saw most of the sights last time round so this time it is more about hanging out and enjoying the cafes, restaurants, bars and great weather. Hope you are all well. We are having a great holiday!!!
