Our whirlwind tour began at Columbus Plaza, and during the ensuing eight hours we saw the famous, quirky La Sagrada Familia, checked out the Gothic district, wandered the crazy La Rambla, and ventured down many quaint, full-on Spanish sidestreets in between.

I think we walked about 12km around the centro de la cuidad of Barcelona.... and it wasn't anywhere near enough for me! I need to go back! Not only to Barcelona, but to Spain in general. It is such a beautiful place, and this trip just barely scratched the surface for me as to all that the country has to offer. We covered almost 4300km in a VW Polo, and I'd say at least another 100km or so on foot..... soooo fun!
Well, I'm home now.... **SIGH**.... The flights were uneventful and the weather isn't even all that bad here. I am however, in about my 22nd hour of awaked-ness, so tonight is going to be an early night. Like as in the ''I'm going to bed right now" kind of early. But I'm betting you can guess what I will be dreaming about!
