Barcelona Day 1

After a very early start we arrived in good time at Birmingham airport for our 6:50 am flight. Leaving raining England we landed in Barcelona in glorious sunshine. After a brief coach transfer to our hostel, we dumped our bags and headed out to get lunch at a nearby shopping precinct where we were entertained with live dance lessons in the piazza. We then visited the El Encants flea market with it’s amazing mirrored roof. Then back to the hostel to relax for 1/2 hour and then out to explore Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter which was amazing. We then had dinner and then ¬†off to the Magic Fountain which danced and lit up. We then staggered back to the hostel around 10pm for a well earned sleep. No problem with curfews tonight…
