Day 1: Part 1

Our plane landed as the sun was starting to peer above the horizon, displaying beautiful oranges and reds. We gathered our bearings and headed for the metro with our hotel in sights. Our first stop was to the wonderful area of Barceloneta. This is the beach area, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, which offers great restaurants and clubs up and down the walkway. We were lucky enough to get a beautiful blue sky and warm sun for our travels.

There were some incredible sand castles that incorporated working fountains, windmills, and chimneys. Truly amazing indeed. I can officially say that I put my feet into the Mediterranean Sea. Check! What a way to start out our Spanish journey.
