Behind the Curtain: Spain with Amy + Erin, Part 1

We teased you with a short video a few weeks ago about our trip to Spain. Here are a few photos from that adventure, starting with Barcelona on Day One. We stayed at an amazing apartment on Passeig de Gracia. we would highly recommended these apartments for families or groups traveling together. There were eight of us and between two apartments we could do brunch, cocktails and games just right. A short stroll down the street was a large market to purchase food and wine (lots of wine!) and the quintessential dice for some games of 10,000. And in every direction discoveries awaited us - from museums to shopping to eating.



Our apartment was the perfect location for venturing on Day One. Our first stop was the Museu Picasso (no pictures and some strict security guards!) in the Barri Gotic - The Gothic Quarter. The roads are narrow - more like footpaths, that wind their way through this darker - but historically impressive district.



We wandered out of the district and towards the port. Clean lines married with historic architecture. The sunshine, fresh air and the sea beckoned us.



Typical tourists, we stopped to assess our footwear. Some of us had blisters the next day (no surprise there!)










From the port we strolled north towards Bogatell Beach. This beach was created for the Barcelona Olympic Games - an impressive fact to comprehend when standing amidst all that sand.


Still quite jetlagged, we ambled through streets and past Ciutadella on our way home.


Day Two up next!!
