Today was our last day in Barcelona and our last day of our 5-week trip for that matter. It’s a national holiday so everyone was off from work. We did a little sightseeing on the Turistic Bus – always a great way to get an overall view of the city. It’s a little pricey at 27€ for one day but it’s really great because they have free wi-fi. I brought my iPad and my daughter did some learning games for 2 hours.
For the afternoon we were invited to join our host’s parents at their house for lunch. They live in the penthouse of this building so it’s very convenient. They had a lovely lunch for us – salad, pasta, chicken and fresh fruit with cinnamon (a first for me). Her parents are so lovely and we really had great conversations. We stayed all the way through until dinner just hanging while the kids played together. They tell me they have a beach house on the Costa Brava with a view of the ocean. Will definitely have to come back during the summer!
