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 Bavaria: Eibsee & Bremsee & Fungi

The next day we woke up and it was quite cloudy, but we still headed off to hike around Eibsee. 

Colmar, France Part 2 - All the museums!

So when we were wandering around Colmar and spying on all the things we saw a sign that we happened to be in Colmar on a free night at the museum! So most of the museums in town were free from 7pm-11pm/midnight (depending on the museum). So we of course had to go check them out! There were only four in town so we were able to go to all of them, though by the end we were so tired and our feet were so sore from a long day of exploring and long night of museums.  First up was the Museum Bartholdi, but I didn't take any photos in there (I wasn't sure I was allowed and it was super busy, so many people!). It was super tiny, but interesting. There were a lot of models of ideas he had for different monuments and then what he actually ended up using. The one room was just ideas and designs for the Statue of Liberty which was cool. There wasn't a lot there, but what there was I enjoyed.  Then it was over to the Natural History and Ethnology Museum Cool bugs

San Francisco Part 1

  Oh San Francisco. What a wonderful time I had there. It was absolutely beautiful the entire time. Sunny, warm, gorgeous. Plus getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia = So much fun! We definitely need to do more girls trips! This will be a mostly picture post   I arrived late afternoon and the bus dropped me off near Fishermans Wharf and I walked over to where we were staying. Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but with my bags and such I was a bit warm. Not expecting that in February! Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful!   After wandering along the waterfront for a bit it was time for some dinner! We happened to find the Plant Cafe and I got a plant burger with fries and a salad. Really tasty! Afterwards we went to get a drink and noticed the bar had trivia on Tue
