About a year ago, I wrote a post about hoping to go on holiday to Barcelona My daughter, who had previously not wanted to go abroad, had decided she would like to go to Barcelona, so this seemed like too good an opporunity to miss. But then we had a rather ‘eventful’ holiday on a canal boat – read about that here here and especially here and my husband decided we couldn’t be trusted to go abroad if we couldn’t even avoid disaster in the British countryside. So Barcelona was, sadly, put on the backburner.
It seems that we’re just not that good at holidays. No wonder we go to nice old, safe old Padstow every year. Nearly a year on, the memories of our canal holiday, not to mention our Italy holiday have faded sufficiently for us to think about Barcelona again.
And the good news is, we’ve booked a holiday for later in the summer!
We’re taking no chances. We won’t be losing any suitcases (you need to read those Italy posts!). We’ve got a proper package which will involve us being picked up from the airport, not making hasty, incorrect decisions and getting on buses and off again in a hurry without thinking things through.
We are all very excited. My daughter wants to see the Gaudi architecture, especially the lizard at Parc Guell (and I do too!). The boys want to visit the Nou Camp.
And most of all, we want to enjoy some decent warm, sunny weather. The sort we just don’t get in the UK any more.
Now I just have to convince my husband that it really would be a good idea to take a whole suitcase full of food and drink, just in case my daughter refuses to eat or drink any of the foreign food and drink on offer…
