Oakland to Barcelona

We are in Barcelona! Our flight on a Norwegian Airlines Dreamliner 787 was great! Duke totally surprised me and booked us in premium class!! I’ve always said that if I won the lottery I would always fly first class. But as I walked back to coach class and couldn’t find my seat until the steward pointed up front I was totally blown away! Duke can sure keep a secret! The best secret ever!

In Barcelona we took the Metro into town. The trip cost us €4.60 each. We are staying in a small hotel called K+K Hotel Picasso on the edge of the Gothic Quarter. After a nap we went for a walk to try to stave off the urge to sleep and to defeat jet lag. We walked up Las Ramblas and through the Gothic Quarter.

As usual for my trip reports here come the food photos! We had dinner at Llamber Taverna Gastronómica. We had four small plates to share.

Patatas Brava and warm bread with tomatoes.


Rice in squid ink with cuttlefish

And beef

The cost including two glasses of wine each was €70. Everyone was friendly our waiter was from Bangladesh. As tired as we both are it was a perfect first meal in Spain.
