Day 1 Update: Barcelona

Hello from Barcelona. My flight arrived early this morning around 08:15 and I had a smooth experience getting through customs and getting my bag. My next adventure was taking the Aerobus from the airport to Plaza Catalunya before walking the few blocks to my hotel. I love our hotel location. We are right off Las Ramblas and in the heart of what seems to be a social part of town.

After a short nap, Joey arrived from his flight and we went off to see the Sagrada Familia. Talk about such a cool looking interior inspired by nature. i absolutely love it inside. It is hard to believe that it has been under construction for over 100 years and was only fully enclosed and dedicated by the Pope in 2010! After visiting the church, we had a nice lunch near by and then back to the hotel before heading back out for the evening.

This evening, we took the subway to the magic fountains to see the show there and it was neat to see all of the people that come out for it. Reminded me a lot of Disney, though not as over the top, but it appears to be a huge draw for the locals.

Back at the hotel now for the night it looks like. Sleep is calling my name after being up for so many hours. We had to the port tomorrow to board the Disney Magic. Still open to what we will do before sailing. Several ideas on the mind but nothing set in stone yet. Next update will come when I have Internet again.
