Day Seven: Barcelona, Spain

Posted on Saturday, February 5th, 2005

Dave!I had exactly one goal on my final day in Barcelona before returning to Cologne this afternoon... touch the waters of the Mediterranean. I needed it to add to my "collection" of major bodies of waters that I've put my hands on.

Hand in the Med

It was a lot colder than I thought it would be, even for a dreary day in February.

After getting sand in my boots and frozen fingers, I took a walk up to the lobby of the world-famous Hotel Arts. I would have really liked to have stayed there, but it costs something like a billion dollars a night, so perhaps next time.

And now I bid Spain adieu...

  1. Wow. The Spanish are famous for there manicurian arts, surprised you didn’t take advantage.


    Safe travels.

    I’m nothing, if not well-manicured!

    This reminds me of riding coast-to-coast… dippin’ my feet in the salty waters of two oceans within 42 hours of collecting water in test tubes for posterity. I really like this pic.
