Lazy Sunday in Barcelona

05.30.2010

This morning I had breakfast in the hostel with the girl from Montreal, the one from Portland and a guy from Seattle.  The Pacific NW is representing well in Barcelona.

I was moving to a place recommended by my Canadian friends, Pension Palacio.  It's closer to everything, costs a bit more, but I have a private room with shared bathrooms.  It's also close to the ferry terminal.

I carted my stuff to the subway and found the pension without difficulty.  I checked in and then wandered around the waterfront area, which was very close.

I had a late lunch at the place around the corner from the pension.  I had fresh-squeezed OJ and a chicken burrito.  I went back to the pension for a nice nap.

I woke up feeling refreshed so I decided to walk to Las Ramblas.  Everyone was out walking.  Las Ramblas is another tourist area, but it was fun to people watch and see what was there.  I eventually headed toward the Cathedral and continued wandering, looking at scooters and people and just enjoying the walk.  I found a ton of gelato places, too!

I spent a couple of hours walking around before heading back to the pension to capture some of the Camino pictures on my laptop, then off to bed!
