This post is about our days in Barcelona, ending with boarding the ship. It was during this period that I lost quite a few pictures somehow in the process of trying to copy them to a USB stick for back up. Among other things we visited was the Gaudi House and Museum for which the pics are gone.

Turns out most of our time in Barcelona was all about Gaudi, including much of what we ran into around town. We visited the Sagrada Família (pictured below), a basilica he designed and started in 1882, and is still being finished today. Fascinating story, and even more fascinating basilica. It's definitely not like your typical basilica. Get tickets ahead of time online:

All the photos from these Barcelona days are here.

We stayed at a great place that Paul Hess found: Gallery Hotel. It was right in the best spot for us to explore Barcelona a bit (up a ways from the main tourist area by the water). Another cool spot turned out to be Dry Martini. A watering hole, actually.

By the end of the day on the 11th we were aboard ship and took advantage of one of the specialty restaurants on board: The Red Ginger.
