Okay, Barcelona is the ‘princess’ place, it’s about 40 years since I was here and that was only to collect my post. It’s a travelling thing, if you wrote to someone when you were travelling in 1976 (yup remember letters?) you had to give them an address to write back to and we knew we would be passing through Barcelona on our way south (you’d have to have read SILH series for that to make sense) So arriving yesterday afternoon we went for a walk, now this took all afternoon and most of the night, about 12 miles according to the ‘Princess’s feet today. We kinda took a wrong turn on our way back to the hotel and walked an hour in the opposite direction, oh well. Sorted it today with map and Metro. So today we went to the Sagrada Familia. It’s a big church they’ve been building for about two hundred years.

Well c’mon you know this isn’t one of those intense, fact filled Travel Blogs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But it was a bit impressive. Oh, almost forgot I had a great run down by the beach at 7am 😘😘 I’ll let you know if I see anything else interesting

    Hey Charlie, this is one of the best ‘travel’ blogs ever! πŸ˜‚ 😊 😎
    I had to google the Sagrada Familia and wasn’t surprised to find ‘Gaudi’ as the architect. He really was ‘one of a kind’….. I loved this quote:
    “Β«It is not a disappointment that I will not be able to finish the temple. I will grow old, but others will come after me. What must be always preserved is the spirit of the work; its life will depend on the generations that transmit this spirit and bring it to life.Β» A. GaudΓ­…
    Now just a little piece of advice: The Princess’s feet may need a massage (if the Princess enjoys such pampering?). This would go a long way to mending the wrong directional walk.. 😎
    Happy beach running…. πŸ™‚
