Off to Barcelona


We are going to Barcelona for a few days this weekend, as part of my Christmas present to R. It will be my first visit to Spain and the weather is supposed to be quite warm so I am really looking forward to it. With the extra baggage around my waist, we are definitely not going to be over-ambitious with our sightseeing plans. I would just like to see a few key landmarks, such as Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia (above), which commenced construction in 1882 and building works are still ongoing!. The rest of the time, I would like to duck into shops in the little lanes, follow my nose into plain unpretentious cafes which serve fantastic wholesome Spanish food and enjoy our last little holiday before the little one bursts into our world.

    If you take the subway, the church is behind you and when you turn around and take your first look at it, its breathtaking. Enjoy the tapas bars as well. Remember… everything shuts down for sieta, every afternoon. Viva Espania!

      That was exactly what we did. A real shame about all the construction cranes around the church though. 😦
