I love you trip report and I keep reading it. I sure learn a lot. I like to ask you if you are going back to Barcelona again, will you still stay in the same hotel? I'm thinking of booking it. I saw in the map that it close to the port. Is it close to metro and easy to go around from the hotel. Thanks a lot again.

Sorry, I just saw your post -- for some reason, I didn't get an email. Hmmmm.... about the hotel, not sure. It was OK. For us, it worked out because we had a sort of suite --- that sounds grand but it was pretty basic -- it had a small room attached to the larger room. The smaller room was oddly shaped and had two cots set up for our teenaged daughters. The location was fine -- a few blocks off La Rambla and not too far from the port. We walked a lot. There was a club in the same building -- you could see people coming and going late at night. It is on the Metro and has a stop right outside the hotel, so that's a big plus.

You will love it! If you have the opportunity, take a tour with Runner Bean Tours in Barcelona. Even if you don't have a reservation, show up and they will probably be able to take you.

We took taxis (2 for seven people) from the hotel to the port. It's not that far but too far to walk.

Thank you so much for this wonderful trip report! Your girls seem so sweet! I know these things take a long time and wanted you to know how much I appreciated all the photos, details and "reviews" of the various tour guides and restaurants.
Thanks again!

Thanks for reading. I really enjoy doing travel reports -- lets me live it all over again. (I even reread it myself, sometimes.)

I'm excited for everyone who's going to the Med this summer. Sure, it's hot as heck, but what a wonderful experience and so much to see!
