We left our sweaters back in the hotel when we wandered around Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter) in Barcelona.
I love this shot of Hanna – caught in the middle of a thought. We had a blast celebrating her birthday in Spain. Also – we were grateful when she translated our questions and food orders.
I managed to order clara and cava at bars, on my own, by the end of the trip.
Tourist bonus: cached maps on our smartphones synched up with GPS signals. We didn’t need cell phone service. It’s like having a live map when you’re navigating thru twisty alleys in Barri Gòtic!
A busker entertained us as we waited to go inside the Picasso Museum.
This is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life.
Paid admission to the Museu Tauri in Barcelona allows you to explore this former bullfighting arena. We climbed up these “Vertigo” stairs to wander around the upper deck seating area.
I blogged about the museum on my Eurotrip site.
This is my entry for this week’s Photo Sunday Challenge: Stairs.
I’m not feeling the Halloween spirit this year. Sadly, this costumed holiday falls on a work day. I don’t have the energy to deal with trick-or-treaters and party people when I have to be at work before sunrise.
Maybe next year. For now, I stumbled on vacation photos that would fit this week’s Travel Theme: Spooky.
That’s a shadow from at staircase inside Palau Güell, one of Guadi’s palaces in Barcelona.
Our American cow trackable meets a bat at this geocache site in Parc de Monterols.
We gave Hugo, the bat, a free trip to California. We’re trying to find him a bat cave geocache for his new home.
