Barcelona

We are sitting on the train right now on our way to relax in southern France.

We've been in Barcelona the last three days spending part of the first day with my parents before we sent them off cruising for a week. Bon voyage mom and dad!!

Barcelona was bustling and beautiful. Who knew a city could hold so much art, architecture (LOVE Gaudi!) delicious food and culture. Not to mention people!! My gosh, there are a lot of people here! We just hapened to be in Barcelona to watch Spain win the world cup, I must admit I am not the biggest soccer fan but it was so fun to be here to watch them win and soak up the excitement. Espana! Espana!

Our train is just entering France as I write this and I just spotted the ocean! It is going to be a good three days... Au revoir!

A few highlights of Barcelona...
