Where I stayed
We had an Quick 1hour 45 Minutes Flight from LSZG Grenchen to LELL Sabadell.
The Spaniards are nice and especially the Catalans are pretty efficient and easy.
We got Fuel on Arrival and where told we could like the Airplane right at the Exit gate which was really convinient and the Custom Lady had a Friend which brought right into Downtown Barcelona. We exchanged Phone numbers with the Driver and he promised to pick us up whenever we wanted to leave.
Later in the Hotel we got an message that we should not have left the Airplane at the Gate Location and should come to the Airport to move it.
We ignored the message especially since we had already had happy hour and Beer intus
We really Enjoyed Barcelona , had a nice City Tour , but lots of People and the waiting time at the Cathedral was something like 2 hour ... we did an nice walk instead true the Old City.
The cathedral is amazing ... about 6 to 10 People working on it since more than 100 years and is still far away from being finished . it is an on-going project paid for by Visitors with donate seeing the inside........
it is a huge Building and very fascinating.
The Old City with literally hunderts of nice little restaurants with every imaginable offering of food really lift the spirit ,everybody seems to be happy here.
Real Estate Prices have not declined here as in the the rest of Spain.... and at the present the is a lot of talk that Catalan should separate from the rest of Spain.........I can understand that very well the People here are really different than the rest of Spain.....punctual , efficient , honest and very Friendly.
When we Phoned our Driver to be Picked up at 8AM the next day he was already in the Lobby when we came down to check out 10 minutes before the agreed time.............
We hade an beautiful Flight back to Switzerland with some sightseeing around the Matterhorn ..... the wetter was perfect.
