Barcelona Part 4


Barcelona. Man I have a lot of photos from our trip. About half way through them. Onward we go. We stayed in this neighborhood area by the beach. It just seemed like it was just people living there, not a lot of people who are just visiting. When we got there the streets didn't have any decorations or anything, but everyday slowly there were more and more streamers across the streets. All different colors, and a lot of signs, but I don't know what they were about. I tried translating the signs and Google said it is something like A.C.H.S. The siren will want a good start. 1 Million arrive. By the time we left most of the roads were covered with streamers across them. It was fun. 




This day, Sunday, we decided to go spy on all the churches we had seen on out tour. First up was Santa Maria del Mar. I remember our tour guide said that most of them seem much bigger inside than they do outside which was really true. Inside was just like this is huge! Then you step outside and it doesn't look quite as big. Very interesting.









Then we moved on to the cathedral


Which you couldn't really see much of it since there was a wall right inside so...maybe when mass is not in service you can go through...



Geese in the Cloister




And the outside.



Our tour guide had said that every Sunday at like 11am a band shows up and people dance the Catalan national dance outside the cathedral so of course we planned it so we were there when that happened. It was fun, and easy to learn (though I have forgotten it now).





Opposite the cathedral is this Picasso piece


A small art market






Església de Sant Jaume


In Placa Reial there was this giant coin and stamp market we stumbled upon.



La Rambla - the easiest way to get to the water from where we were.





And of course back to the beach!










And having some drinks to finish out day. Only two more days to go!

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. 

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. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
