What to do while your boat is out of the water? Pop across to Barcelona for a long weekend. We found the Hard Rock Cafe on one of our wanders, a good place for lunch in any country. Spent most of the time around Port Vell watching the world go by.
Barcelona is such a city of contrasts, historic architecture, modern towering hotels, great wealth, great poverty all placed in such close proximity. Watching the yachts sail out one morning made us think about the future and when we too will be sailing out of Port Vell.
So much maritime history from the statue of Columbus (pointing to the ‘new word’ or Genoa?) to this wooden hull of a super-tanker, I thought this was brilliant.
Must try somewhere else for the next weekend away though.
