Dan and I had been looking forward to our trip back home to Prague for a long time. We were gone for 10 days, the first five the kids were with Grandma and Grandpa Reeves and the last five they were with Grandma and Grandpa Davis. Both were looking forward to being with the grandkids, but as Benji said, “Five days is a long time.”
When planning the trip we wanted to include a side trip and I’ve always wanted to go to Spain so we headed to Barcelona for 3 days. Barcelona was beautiful! The weather was great – but we weren’t able to take as many pictures as we wanted since the airport lost our luggage and we only had our camera the second half of our trip.
That evening we went to the beach downtown and I was entranced by the musicians. It seemed like there was an unspoken rule that each performer had a half an hour to play their music and people started sporadically salsa dancing. I felt like I could sit there forever!
My favorite building was Gaudi’s depiction of George slaying the dragon. The top is the dragon and the windows look like skeleton heads from inside the dragon. And how can you go to Barcelona without seeing La Sagrada Familia? Amazing!
My favorite part of Barcelona would either be Park Guell or the beach.
Then we went to Spain’s Arc de Triumph which isn’t nearly as impressive as the one in France but Barcelona has parrots! Which is almost as cool!
From there we walked up to El Poble and saw this car. Classic but the best part was the giant scooby doo doll out front. There were people in the car getting dressed but I had to get a picture.. Then we went to El Poble which is where they remade one building from each of the provinces in Spain. It was really cool!
And since the beach was just a few metro stops away we did a final swim before taking off to Prague. Funny enough we ran into friends from Prague at the beach. I love Barcelona!
