The haunting of history is ever present in Barcelona.

Despite just having returned from a four-week vacation in the USA, I’ve now booked flights to Barcelona, to see a very close friend.  I fly out there On September 26th, and come back to England on September 29th

The journey from Newcastle upon Tyne, to Amsterdam, to Barcelona, is about 11 hours each way, and the flights are costing me about $400.  Add in hotels, taxis, meals, and the like, and this will easily be an $800 / $1,000 short break.

Barcelona is a fabulous city, which I’m only visiting for two days on this trip. I ‘m going a long way for only 2 days, but what price on friendship?

    1. I like America, but I like some other places better. My favourite place to visit is Tuscany; there you get great food, great wines, nice people, and Florence, Sienna, Pisa…. ❤ ❤ ❤
