10 Year Wedding Anniversary Adventure - Day 1

Here are some snapshots from our first day in Barcelona. The weather was perfect, and we managed to find great things to do. We are practically zombies at this point, but enjoying every bit of it.

One story that doesn't need a photo. I wanted to pick up some grape juice and bread for saying Kiddush tonight. However, try as we might, I couldn't find grape juice. I could get kiwi, guava and lots of other exotic flavors - but not grapes. So we decided to pick up a bottle of wine. We ended up walking out of the store with a boxed white wine - it cost all of 0.55 Euro - That's about 85 cents for wine. Now that's a deal! I'm a bit concerned to see what it tastes like -but it should do the trick.

Here's a smattering of photos - more to come later:

Us on some fancy looking steps in Barcelona:

The beach. Did I mention the weather was perfect?

The very cool Museu D'Historia De La Ciutat. The museum's basement consists of a series of paths that take you through the remains of Roman era Barcelona. You're actually walking on top of the ruins. Quite impressive.

Classic Us:

Park De La Ciutadella. Did I mention the weather was perfect? OK, I'll shush about that fact.


  1. Love Barcelona!!! Hands down one of the top 5 cities in the world for me.

    Looks like you're having a great time!

  2. It really is a wonderful city. Lots to see, and really quite accessible.

    It took us a while to figure out which was the best vegetarian options - but once we did, the food was excellent too.
