21 Jan 2007: Barcelona

Marina

The winter in Barcelona was milder than in the UK, and no extra scarf or heavy sweaters were necessary. We were only affected by rain briefly. However, Barcelona gets a lot more active during the Summer months particularly around the beaches.

On our final night, we wandered around Barceloneta and Port Vell to see what was going on. It felt a bit more like a holiday resort down there, less Catalonia and more beach and drinks. So we weren't bothered that we'd missed out on anything. A vaguely interesting mall, an aquarium, a cinema complex. Standard holiday filler.

Anyway, that's it, that's Barcelona! All in all, a good trip, but it left our legs a tad exhausted. They've recovered now, thanks for asking.
