The first day in Barcelona we just walked around the city all day. Out hotel was in a wonderful location right off la Rambla (one of the main streets in town, and it leads straight to the ocean) we called it The Rambler the whole weekend. Once we got on our way in the morning we stopped for coffee and an omelet. I officially love Spanish coffee. I usually don’t like espresso with just a dash of milk, preferring instead the ratio of a latte, but this stuff was AMAZING. I drank so much coffee this weekend that I am still feeling the jitters! Then we mosied on down The Rambler headed towards the coast.
Mike at our amazing coffee, oj and eggs breakfast:
We came upon an open area off the main street that was having a fair-ish thing. It was a coin, stamp and beer bottle cap convention sort of thing. All the vendors were set up in tents and then around the edges were people selling the most random things.
A lady with a booth had boxes of the weirdest stuff. There are empty packets of sweetener, coasters, postcards, pins etc etc.
At the Christopher Columbus statue (I think it has an official name but I don’t know what it is). Apparently when Mr. Columbus returned from the New World he landed in Barcelona.
There are loads more pictures and I will keep posting them!
