Welcome to My Travels in 2018. The year started with a 6 day visit to our friends Luis & Mercedes in Costa Rica. On March 31, I officially retired from American Airlines. We celebrated with a Transatlantic Cruise from Florida to Barcelona. Hope you enjoy My Travels!
Our cruise arrived in Barcelona Wednesday morning April 18. We took a taxi from the cruise terminal to our hotel where we rested. Afterwards we explored the neighborhood around our hotel, had breakfast, and finally did some laundry! On Thursday we took the metro to Plaza Catalunya and walked around the Ramblas.
A visit to Mont Juic and the Magic Fountain. From Mont Juic you can see breathtaking views of the city of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. The Magic Fountain can be seen every evening after sundown.
On our 4th day in Barcelona we visited the incredible Sagrada Familia Cathedral. The cathedral is a must and should be on everyone's bucket list. You will be totally impressed with all the detail and incredible siize of the ceilings. The stained glass windows are vibrant and colorful. After that we visited Parc Guell where you can view some views of the city and enjoy Gaudi's art.
