Back to Barcelona?

Above, our hotel was in this beautiful palm-dotted square a short walk from La Rambla.
Below, Dick loved his first taste of European architecture.

Below, La Rambla (the area is often called 'Las Ramblas') was all lit up at night. The evening marketplace, which Dick explored with his camera and without me, was as colorful as the lights could ever be, with candy, fish and fruit.

My husband (that big healthy guy who drags me around the world by the scruff of my neck) has booked us a Tulips and Windmills cruise in The Netherlands and Belgium next spring, and, after eight days of driving around France, a week in a condo in the south of France. It is in the very south, so far south we'll be able to drive to Barcelona and back in a day. Possibly we'll be tempted to pop down there in our rental car just to see if it's still as wonderful as it was a few years ago when we stayed there prior to a Royal Caribbean Canary Islands cruise and a week of driving around Spain. We stayed just a short walk from the Columbus statue on the Barcelona waterfront, and an even shorter walk from the wonderfully entertaining thoroughfare known as La Rambla.
