Pizza, Pisa, Gelati headache and Florence

semi-overcast 28 °C

A stop at Miracle square to view the odd Leaning Tower. I think there were even more souvenir sellers that I remember from my visit 4 years ago if that’s possible! Another hour in the coach before hitting Florence for lunch and the whole afternoon. Couldn’t fault our (Aussie) tourleader who highlighted an ideal route on the map before sending us of on our own. First pizza and gelati in Italy today – both were better than I remember. That slightly charcoal crust with garlic laden tomato sauce melted in your mouth. The Duomo, as always was awe-inspiring.

Viva la France!

sunny

Only one stop in France but really a great one for Mum. Got the entire French experience - cafes, small lane ways and markets in Aix en Provence and grand boulevards in Marseille. Brilliant sunshine!

More Barcelona

sunny 27 °C

Had to post a couple more Barcelona shots. The Boqueria Market in Barcelona is something else. Tapas, colourful fruits and juices abound. A paradise for the photographer and the palate. Of course, had to take more photos of La Sagrada – this time at night and in the early morning. Sorry for the briefness. Trying to use remaining wifi before ship leaves port!!!

Gothic & Surreal

27 °C

Explored the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona today - eating pastries, drinking great coffee (Melbourne, we are so ripped off price wise!) and exploring the narrow alleyways. Finished the day at La Sagrada Familia, this time from the inside. Saw Mum's jaw drop at the entrance!

Barcelona

sunny 27 °C

After 2 flights and a delay we finally made it to Barcelona. Our accommodation is right around the corner from La Sagrada Familia so managed to get some late afternoon light on the facade. Ate a lovely Paella for dinner. Not bad for 2 hours in Barcelona!
