On My Way to Barcelona!!
In just a few short hours I’ll be off to Barcelona, Spain. I’m getting so excited! I just wanted to say ‘arrivederci tutti’ (goodbye eveyone) and have a great weekend!! I thought I would also share with you my tentative itinerary for the weekend. First of all, when we get into Barcelona tonight, we’re going to go eat at KFC, yep that’s right. It’s right by our hotel. Friday morning, we’re going to go the the Temple de la Sagrada Familia. It’s this really amazing church designed by Gaudi’. They’ve been building it for over 100 years now and it’s still not finished, but it’s still really amazing and you can go to the top of it. In the afternoon, we’re going to go to the Picasso Museum and to another cathedral. We’ll probably wonder around the area that we’re stayting in, the La Ramblas, for the rest of the day. Saturday morning, we’re going to the port area and the aquarium, which is the largest in Europe. Then we’re going to take the tram to Montjuic in the afternoon and tour a castel and the olympic stadium (to get excited about next weekend). Then we’ll wonder around the Spanish village and see what the Barcelonians do for fun. We left Sunday open in hopes that we’ll be able to see a bull run. They do them every once in a while on Sundays, so I really hope we get to see one. We might also go to the market on Sunday, the Marcat de Sant Antoni. There are some other cool things we’ve read about that I’m sure we’ll see when we’re wondering around, like the Christopher Columbus monument, the Arc de Triomf, Casa Mila…I can’t wait!! It’s going to be so much fun!!
