Lori William Barcelona


After a very long day of travel, Bill and I arrived in Barcelona to spend a few days before we leave on a Mediterranean Cruise. I have always wanted to see Spain, because I am part Spanish as well as Irish and Norwegian. On the plane ride over, I happened to sit next to two handsome guys, one was from Spain and the other Norway. It was interesting talking to them and learning about the different cultures. When my son visited Europe, people thought he was from Spain.  I had to see for myself what a true Spanish person looked like and surprisingly, he looks a lot like the young handsome guys here.

We had a great day of sightseeing, rode a tram over to the beach and did some people watching as well as walking down the narrow alleys and looking at the adorable homes. I love architecture and had fun taking pictures.
At 9:00 we ate Paella for dinner at a restaurant called Elche. We were able to get it without shells, which made it so much more enjoyable to eat. After a wonderful dinner and a bottle of wine. We strolled by the night clubs, where the evening was just beginning for the young people. Then, we hailed a cab which took us back to the Hotel Miramar. Until tomorrow, have a good night. For me it is quite late.
