¡Bienvenidos a España!


After a 7 and 1/2 hour flight, we are here, in Barcelona Spain!

Before any more talk about our first day, I want to thank all of the O-G-G’s who followed us through Alaska last year, and have come back for more, just in time for our Mediterranean Adventure!

Now, back to today… We were pleasantly surprised to land almost an hour early, and dropped our bags at our hotel to walk on “Las Ramblas”.

What a Crowd!

At noon on Sundays outside the cathedral, across from our Hotel, the local churchgoers perform traditional Spanish Music, and Dance in the Cathedral Square.

Here is the Cathedral itself;

We are having a hard time getting used to the time change, but I did one thing right, I did what
the locals do, took a well needed “siesta” this afternoon! Wow, I can’t believe it’s 5pm here. It feels like 11am in my mind… Oh wait, it’s 11am in New York!

I will be taking advantage of the free wi-fi here at El Hotel Colon, and sharing more with you all in the morning.

¡Hasta Luego!
Spencer
