Barcelona Part 5


Since we had been doing so much walking all over Barcelona one of our last days there we decided to just have a beach day. Just lay on the beach, rest out feet, and only walk to get lunch and dinner. In the morning it was still a bit too chilly and overcast to swim, but by afternoon it was warm enough. So lots of beach photos in this post









After lunch all clear and sunny. We had been going to the beach every day at some point and there are tons of ladies walking around trying to give people massages and guys with drinks and blankets to sit on. When it is sunny and busy on the beach they are everywhere and kind of annoying as they come by every two seconds. So on our beach day we sat a little farther down the beach than we normally had been, closer to some buildings that were back by the road, and in the morning we had noticed that none of those people selling things came over as far as we were. It was like there was an invisible line they didn't cross. It was curious, but that afternoon we found out why. We were sitting just below the police station there on the beach, which we didn't realize, and one of the vendors did come over that far and the police came out and took him inside to talk to him. So note to anyone going to Barcelona - sit near the police office on the beach and don't get hassled by the people selling stuff.












Inside the hotdog place we had pre-dinner



We found this hidden basketball court where there were lots of kids hanging out to eat out hotdog - in el Raval







The streets are pretty quiet after dark through the center of town. Only one more day left in Barcelona.

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
