Day 2&3 Barcelona

Ola! haha that about as good as mine and sams spanish gets still, we are feeling more confident now and know our way around (just in time to leave) ill start with yesterday, Saturday. We went to Guadis park, made by a famous artist, the park sits atop a mountain and has amazing views of the city and all of barcelona, it really was amazing

view from guadi park

To get to the park you have to go up a fair few hills but  its okay theres escalators in the middle of the street ! so random. After this we walked the main street and sat down for lunch and ended up walking the whole harbour. Everyone will be amazed at how much walking sam is doing with no complaints! i managed to fit some retail therapy in too (no complaints from sam again) and i really wish my bag was bigger. Saturday night we absolutly crashed once again asleep by 7pm we are still finding hard to adjust to the time difference

SUNDAY

today we were up at 5am again unfortunatly, but we are making the most of our days, i dont think our neighbours in the hostel like us because we are up so early. Today we went on a 3 hour bike tour o f the city which we both really enjoyed although pretty tired and sore now, the tour takes you around the artist guadis famous buildings and other sites of barcelona. After we went out for a late lunch, i tried sangria, it came in a fish bowl! one was more than enough for me, as steph would say it went straight to my head. barcelona is such a pretty city and the weather is perfect people keep looking at us like we are crazy because we are walking around in tshirts whilst they all look like they are going to the snow! sam stated that he needed shorts its that nice (i wouldnt go that far) but its perfect weather. Tomorrow is our last day in barcelona and on the 1st we are heading up to paris, thats all from us for now, we are having trouble getting photos onto the blog but they are all on facebook so check them out !

hope everyone is doing well at home, we will check in again soon sam and bec

    Sounds great. You are packing a lot into your days. Hope you have a fantastic New Years eve.
    It looks like the trouble you are having with photos is the file size. Can you edit the photos and get them to under 1mb before you upload them? The blog will take photos up to 8mb, but it does slow things down. Good luck. Great to see the blogs.
