Barcelona Part 3


Our next adventures in Barcelona start in the Mercat del Born - the old public market hall. This was a market, but then it went unused for a number of years. When they went to do some renovations they found the ruins of a medieval city. Our tour guide highly recommended it and it was free and pretty interesting.










Barcelona had a lot of these can and cannot do signs all over. Usually do not walk on the grass, do not let puppy in the grass, stay off the grass, this is a park, but why would you go on the grass?? Things like that. This was my favorite though. No drinking the water, no swimming, no fishing, but you can get electrocuted. These next photos are from the park where the zoo is








Just after we got to this fountain it slowly started to turn on.








We walked out to this giant flea market which was fun. Multiple stories, tons of people, but it wasn't that bad walking through spying.





The next few are la Sagrada Familia - I had seen pictures of this before, but I was not expecting it to be so amazing. Really detailed and colorful, but hard to get a good photo of at the time we were there





 
Walking up to Park Guell 







We didn't actually go inside, just spied outside. Then went to find another park to just laze around in for a bit which was harder than we thought. A lot of the ones on the map were just big dirt areas, or on the hills. Barcelona has a lot of hills and a lot of benches to sit on, but the ones on the hills are not levelled or anything, they are just put on the sidewalk so you end up sliding down to one end.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Krabi Town, Thailand - Day 2

Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect. Raymond's plate of food   And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai.  After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill.  There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues
