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






Esgl├ęsia 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!

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
