We’re in Barcelona where we leave tomorrow for our cruise on Oceania’s Nautica. We’re both fairly well traveled, but neither of us have ever been on a cruise. Our itinerary takes us from Barcelona to Rome, with the French Riviera and Amalifi Coast among the highlights along the way.
Today we did a quick tour of some of Barcelona’s best sights & heights, including the Park Guell which offered spectacular views of the city. Despite my fear of heights, we took an elevator to the top of the Barcelona Cathedral & walked around among the scaffolding (repairs are in progress) for more great views.
One funny anecdote from the day. We were on the hop on/hop off tour bus and as we were driving through the port area we passed a huge yacht. The man behind us said “that’s somebody’s boat.” I turned & replied, “it’s ours.” The man said, “if that was your boat, you’d be on a private tour.” “All our money’s tied up in the boat,” Jeff deadpanned.
Life is good, indeed.
