The second stage of our adventure to us to Nimes, a town in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in southern France.
The Barcelona section of Paul and Jan’s Excellent European Adventure is over. What a city! While I know that we really only scratched the surface, Barcelona is just spectacular.
Read on for the potted version of the second half of our Barcelona visit, or go to Jan’s journal for the full story.
I am so pleased that Barcelona is our first stop. I would hate to have arrived in this city after five months of looking at ancient buildings and cathedrals and not appreciate the history it has to offer. As it turns out, we have really only scratched the surface so far. We are staying in El Raval, just around the corner from La Rambla and at the end of our side street is Gaudi’s Palau Guell. You simply couldn’t get much closer to the action and still get a night’s sleep (with the help of ear plugs). Talk about being in the heart of the things!
