Day 41

Woke up on the train.  Not the greatest experience, night trains, but better than a hostel for the same price.  Arrived in Barcelona, and found our hostel on the beach.  Somebody tried to pickpocket me and when I turned to him, he magically found my wallet on the ground.  He got off at the next stop.  Went to a meeting that afternoon, and then tried to find a hotel nearer the airport for the last night, but to no avail.  So we tried for dinner, but they ran out of food.  They told us this 30 minutes after we ordered.  So we went somewhere else, but there was an hour and half wait.  So we walked across the street to get some cheap food, and found a cheap room.  All worked out in the end.  On the train ride home there was a random salsa party happening.  Random men and women dancing off and on the train.  It was quite a show. 

Places: Train to Barcelona, Spain

 
Day 42

Went up towards the Gothic District in the early afternoon after enjoying the morning at the beach.  Went to the Hard Rock for lunch.  Afterwards walked around the street going to the shops as we headed towards the Basilica.  The Basilica was beautiful.  It contained the main Cathedral along with several side chapels, and a large garden area with a swan garden.  From there went down La Rambla to the Columbus monument and walked around that area, where Jacky was stung by a bee.  From there we walked to the movies which was much longer then expected.  Headed back towards the hostel where we sat on the beach for a few minutes before calling it a night.


Day 43

Our last full day in Europe.  Woke up and moved to a new hotel.  We got a double for the last night.  Went up to the Temple de la Sagrada Familia.  A modern Cathedral in the making as the whole thing was under construction.  Filled with scaffolding and missing the towers it will be worth it to see the building in 30 years or so.  Returned back for a stroll around the Gothic District.  Came back to the hotel for some packing and trying to get some sleep.  We have to be up at 4am.  Just took it easy for the night.
