Thanks to Leonardo helping me book a reserved time for Sagrada Familia so I didn’t have to wait in the long, long lines to get a ticket. My photos nor my words can do justice to the absolutely remarkable structure they are creating from Gaudi’s ingenious ideas.
I actually did great getting around on the Metro today.
This afternoon I walked to La Pedrera, it is a home and apartment building created 1906-1912. Again, it is beyond words. If you have not heard of or seen of either of these places, take the time to look them up on the computer. I feel so lucky to have seen them.
Speaking of lucky, on my way home (back to Leonardo’s) I happened upon a traditional Catalan tradition of building a tower with people. I took videos that I hope to be able to show when I get home. Here is one photo.
Tomorrow is “good-bye to Barcelona – off to Pamplona. Soon my Camino adventure will begin.
Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart.
She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all.
She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.
