Travel Break Chronicles {Part 5}

In the late afternoon we docked in Barcelona, which means we had the night free to explore the town. After much debate, we decided to see the fountain show at Montjuic.

There were three different fountain shows. The first one was to classical music and the second to contemporary music. We only stayed for the first 1 1/2 shows so the third one remains a mystery, that's my excuse to go back ;).
Montjuic also has a huge castle looking building that you have to climb a bazillion stairs to get to. From the top you could look down and see all the city lights.
After the show, we walked along a  long street of shops. We tasted coffee and ate a baked carne something that tasted amazing.

Then we returned to our flat and found that the neighborhood was all lit up for the Christmas season.
The next day we went to Park Guell, which is Barcelona is famous for. Just like the other crazy cool buildings we had seen before, this park was designed by Gaudi.
Artsy benches decked out in colored ceramic.
Love these girls!

That night we visited the Christmas craft fair and finished some last minute shopping. Then we headed back to Israel to finish up the last few weeks of the semester.

What a whirlwind and wonderful travel week it was! So thankful & blessed.
