Debbie does...round the world
28th Aug 2010 - Spain
Barcelona day 2

Back on the Bus Turistic - hop on hop off bus toda. On the blue route which we did some of yesterday with out main objective being Park Guell. Yesterday was pretty wonderful at Casa Battllo and today was just as wonderful in a different way. Took more photos of Sagrada Familia as we went past on the bus - how many photos can a girl have of the same thing.

The Park Guell was just so fun. Free admission. This was where Gaudi did his landscape gardening creativity. Im not really a huge gardener / garden person but this stirred some underlying passion for the future. It originated in 1900 but wasnt finished by 1914 and it was an abandoned project. A Count brought the property and hired Gaudi to design everything. It opened as a public park in 1926. Supposedly designed to bring peace and calm to all who visit. Had a few hours wandering about taking photos. 

Back on the bus and enjoyed the marvellous architecture of the modern and the old. Spent some time wandering down Las Ramblas and looking at various shops. Went to lovely recommended restaurant for dinner up a hill that took a bit of effort getting up - food was wonderful. Last night to a wonderful holiday.



Next: a brilliant day Giverney and Auvers sur Oise - Monet and Van Gogh
