My days at Barcelona are coming to end (tomorrow's the last before my entire day of traveling). This weekend, my family was awesome and took me and the girls are some adventures in Barcelona and a little north of Barcelona.
First stop, a walk up a small mountain next to the final mountain we were to visit. The kids had tennis practice, so we took the time to see a beautiful view of Barcelona city. Unfortunately, it was foggy, so it wasn't the "best" view we could have got, but it was still worth it. Plus, it was nice to take a little hike up a mountain after all the food I have ate while here. I needed to work it off a little bit.
In order to get to our next destination, we got to take the last tram available in Barcelona, and then a train(-like thing). This was fun and unique considering we have been traveling by the metro for most of this trip.
Our second stop was Tibidabo Mountain. On top of the mountain, there is a big catholic church along with a small amusement park (which is actually big for those living here in Barcelona). It was adorable to see! On top of that, we witnessed the end of a wedding, which is not something you would see every day. Overall this was a fun experience.
Our third destination (final destination for Saturday) was the beach. In only a few minutes, we traveled from the top of Barcelona to the bottom. We ate at a seafood restaurant by the beach, where I safely ordered fish and chips. Again, it was a good experience, and we finally made it to the beach!
Our first stop on Sunday was the Llafranc Beach in Llafranc, Spain (go figure!), which is a little north of Barcelona. It was very beautiful, and we had beautiful weather! Next to this beach, we ate a lite snack before driving to our restaurant for lunch.
After our snack, we traveled to Peratallada Village, an only medieval village where the Castell-Palau Castle is located (shown in the picture). We were hoping to go in the castle, but it was already closed for the day. On the bright side, we were able to explore the village. The streets were all stone of different kind, and all the walls were stone as well. This is were we at lunch (at La Roca), and then ventured to our final destination for the weekend.
Our Final Destination was an old Iberian Village, Ullastret, near the Peratallada Village that we first visited. All the buildings and walls were completely gone at this village. All that we left was the foundation. It was very interesting to see and walk on the old roads there were from thousands of years ago. (I apologize for the poor quality of the picture, it was dark when we arrived).
Tomorrow (our final day), the girls and I will do a little bit more exploring and packing... Please continue to pray for our travels!
Packing to go back home is just as hard as it was to pack to come to Barcelona... The struggle is real!
