No We’re Not Going Home Tonight

Last night in Barcelona, of course a night on the town was in order. We didn’t fly out till 2pm so there was no stress about an early morning flight. After the fanciest tapas I’ve ever seen, we settled in a cool little bar a gorged on cocktails. La Ribera became my favourite area in the city with all the cool little bars it’s filled … Continue reading No We’re Not Going Home Tonight

Entry … Continue reading Barcelona – Can We Climb This Mountain

We found a cute little restaurant and stuffed out faces with tapas and wine instead. Given the weather it was the perfect day … Continue reading Barcelona – Take Me to the Church
