Today we walked down to the port after breakfast looking at shops and really being pretty lazy – we had ice creams and tasted some Catalan wines which were good. Then we walked back through the old city then to Barri Gotic, the Gothic area of Barcelona which is very historic and quite beautiful with narrow streets and very old buildings as well as the cathedral. It started to rain again so we headed back to our hotel and went out to dinner and final shopping. Back home to bed at about 10pm. It was raining again tonight.

Today is our last day in Barcelona and after breakfast we came back to the hotel and packed our bags to move out to a hotel closer to the airport (one with a shuttle). We caught the airport bus out to the airport and then took the shuttle to the hotel which is in the suburbs near the airport right in the middle of a very large shopping centre. Unfortunately today is a public holiday here (some major festival is going on – who knew? Not us…..) and so everything is shut except McDonalds and some other Chinese and Chicken restaurant so not many choices. As we are leaving at 6.55am in the morning for Denver and the last leg of our holiday we will have to get up very early as it will be a long day. Sitting in the hotel drinking the last of our Spanish sherry doing nothing much. Out to dinner at Maccas…then to bed around 9pm.
