On June 9, 2013, Ivan, Lil Dave and I checked out of the apartment.
We got a taxi to the new Airbnb apartment and checked in. It’s close to La Sagrada Família.
Ivan parents Denise and Ken came to the apartment from the Norwegian Epic cruise ship soon after.
It was very cool inside with gothic and art nouveau mixed inside with lovely glass stained windows. The ceiling was interesting as well.
I took lots of pictures.
I highly recommend going inside the church if you love unique architecture.
We went to lunch at a Catalan restaurant – not sure of the name. We got a big plate of bread. You got garlic to rub on the bread and then you put tomato on and a bit of olive oil. Ivan and I got a soup and a sepia but it was burnt. The food was okay here.
Our next stop was Parc Güell. It’s a beautiful park done by Gaudi.
Ivan and I only made a short stop here the last time we visited, so it was great to walk around and explore the park more.
It’s a great place to relax in especially on the cool serpentine bench that has many variety of colorful tiles on them.
Lil Dave loved climbing the trees. I would definitely walk around the park if you come visit, there’s lot of great art to discover.
It’s definitely one of my favorite parks in the world.
For dinner, we went to Tapas Royale. Ivan picked out a variety of tapas for everybody. We also ordered cuttlefish, vegetarian paella and Galician-style octopus. It was delicious food as usual.
