Sangria, Spokes, & Spanish Sun

Thursday afternoon we all headed from Milan to Barcelona for a weekend in the warm, Spanish sun! I was really excited to experience Spain and to actually use my Spanish I learned in high school!

Thursday night we headed to a tapas bar for appetizers and sangria!

Friday we embarked on our tour around the city...on bikes! It was about a 4 hour tour riding throughout the city and seeing the sights. It was more fun than I thought - I am so glad we did it!

After the tour, we went to Park Guell. Park Guell is a garden complex with architectural elements by Antoni Gaudi. Let me tell you, Gaudi is an amazing artist and arcitect. I love his work!

And, ended the day with a paella dinner by the beach...perfecto!

Saturday Mary Hester and I got up early and explored the city ourselves.

We went to the Dali museum - his art is very interesting and fantastical.

We wondered down to Las Ramblas and La Boqueria and had a great time people watching and walking around the markets.

Lunch by the marina...

Then, we went to the Pablo Picasso museum and it was great! What a talented man, Senor Pablo was...

We ended our Spanish holiday with a Flamenco show! Olay!
