What is the thing that you would most like to do after getting off a 20 hour flight???* Go to a traditional hamam and have a soak and massage, then a delicious dinner of course! And that is exactly what we did, thanks to the thoughtfulness and generosity of our good friends Ricard and Betty who treated us as to a belated wedding present in Barcelona. It was such a relaxing and special experience, one we wont forget for a long time!

It was so great to feel at home with familiar faces after our 3 month stint in South America. Betty and Ricard did a great job of showing us Barcelona including heading out night we headed out to the Spanish version of the Royal Easter/Melbourne Show complete with flamenco costumes, all types of paella and delicious churros. A real treat.

We also enjoyed exploring the amazing architecture of Barcelona, Gaudi’s Park Guell was a hit, so were the delicious markets in El Raval.

But of course, our favourite meal was at our favourite cafe – Cafe de les Antipodes in Badelona where the special of the day was “La Paella d’en Boaz”. Delicious!!!

* We flew from Rio de Janeiro to Barcelona, then took a side trip to Morocco – just to clear up any confusion. Barcelona was before and after Morocco!
