However, having said all that, there were some very interesting and fascinating places we went to.
The Spanish are very fond of architectural structures on their roundabouts and road junctions. They also use statues and fountains. Makes the road scene much more interesting that Busy Lizzies trying to survive on British roundabouts - if you get that!
We are approaching Barcelona - you can just see the Gaudi church in the centre, and there is also another cruise ship there.
Makes a change from flowers on a roundabout!
The Famous "Ramblas". I loved the old houses with their balconies. There isd a pedestrian area in the centre, where all the market stalls are, plus all the pickpockets and small criminals! We were warned to take great care of our bags etc.
Four stalls in the fantastic Market. Chillies, fruit spaces and dried fruits and nuts - I could have spent a fortune in there!
|The National Maritime Museum was very new, and mercifully cool. |
The architecture inside was lovely, even if there weren't many exhibits!
|I'm not sure quite what this big ship was, whether it was a reconstruction or partly the original, but it wasa HUGE!! Mr. G obligingly stood in front of it for scale purposes!|
One of the biggest, and hottest, squares in Barcelona, and where Mr. G lost me and went back to the ship without me! (You don't want to hear the rest!!)
