Renovation project - Barcelona (our first stop)
We get up and pack our bags, the hotels are booked (on the way
there, nothing planned for on the way home as we don't know what will
be happening yet).
We set off at lunchtime, the first stop is just outside of
The drive is an easy one but it does take 6 hours, as we reach
Barcelona we see the mountains of Montserrat, this is always an
amazing sight, we stopped there a couple of years ago but we are on a
mission today and don't have time.

We find the hotel and John collapses on the bed for a snooze (he
has gotten so used to his siestas and hasn't had one today)
We head out after an hour to find somewhere to eat, this is not a
place we would recommend to visit (but maybe we missed the nice bit?)
we park the car and end up walking down roads trying to keep our
bearings for finding the car again. We don't find any where nice to
eat and settle for a kebab shop this was amazing, not quite what we
had planned but one of the best kebabs we'd had for a long time.
We head back for an early night ready for the next part of the
journey. And I realise I am getting excited about going back to
France, it is at this point I realise, I think of France as home, I
always love going back to the UK because the family are there, but
France is such a nicer country.
At least I hope it it is we had lived
in Brittany, will the rest of France be as nice?
