(Saturday, May 19th)
Time to leave the castle. A few people headed home, some people went to France for a couple days and the rest of us headed into Barcelona.
We managed to check out of the castle in good time. Though we had a really tough time figuring out how to get back to the car rental place. Unfortunately we didn’t save the location on the GPS and the address couldn’t be found anywhere. After dropping everyone off at the apartments (four people in one, eleven in the other) Steve and Brian took off and with some effort finally happened upon it.
This was the view from the apartment (you can see the towers of Sagrada Familia in the top left) More pictures
That day we mostly hung out at the apartment and relaxed, winding down from that whirlwind of a week!
In the evening we all went to dinner in Barri Gòtic — the central part of Barcelona. It’s mostly pedestrians but some cars try to squeeze through of course. There are some beautiful and old buildings sprinkled throughout.
Jon’s friend suggested we eat at Bar el Tropezón. It was a small, grungy place which is usually a good sign. We had a ton of great tapas and it was so cheap! Later we went to a bar and some of us went back to the apartments.
