Mientras se gana algo no se pierde nada.
a bit Yesterday I felt pretty awful. I was nauseous, and felt like I was going to pass out. I packed up my hotel things and headed down the street. This time I did better in the subway, but spent over an hour wandering around trying to find my hotel. Cell phone would be very helpful next time. But I did get to see a lot of the city and meet some nice people who help me on my way.
My new hotel is stunning! Old architecture with the new flair. When I finally got here my room was not ready so they sent me up to the rooftop patio for a free drink. After refreshment and a bit of food I set out once again on the subway to see La Sagrada Familla.
Everywhere I looked there was something new, A new spire, a new sphere, a new person or creature on the façade. Inside was a stunning as well with arches and alcoves an amazing light. Each side was different.
Today I headed to Placa Cataluyna. There I decided to take a hop- on hop-off bus to tour the city, and thought to myself, maybe I should've done that from the beginning. The only thing I lost in doing this was the hat that I bought before I boarded (I was actually proud of the hat, as i used haggling skills to get it), which blew away in the wind.
I got off the bus at several stops to explore and then another bus would come along in five or 10 minutes to pick me back up after I was finished. Much easier on my feet. Many places that I have gone by subway have required more walking than it actually took to walk to the site in the first place
It was a great way to spend the day exploring and save my feet and energy. The package I got includes a trip tomorrow to Montserrat and a free Flamenco dance show. I know, I know… Touristy… But I had a great day
