Day 18: Barcelona

sunny 30 °C

Ola! We've just arrived in Barcelona, Spain! Very, very hot right now, we honestly weren't expecting it to be so hot! We left the Beaujolais region in the French countryside this morning, it was a really lovely place, but everybody got sunburned and the showers weren't exactly everybody;s favourite part of the chateau. Still, Contiki's special Chateau de Cruix was quite a nice place to stay, and the pool and bar were great. We've had a 10 hour coach ride to get to Barcelona, which we've been told is the longest drive in the tour, so we're quite relieved at that. Everybody is splitting u tonight, going into the city or finding a bar, or doing what i'm doing and having a relaxing night in. Need it considering tomorrow we're exploring the city, going to the beach, a Flamenco dance show, then clubbing until the wee hours of the morning later on. Should be an action packed day tomorrow, but for tonight i'm content to relax and kick back, maybe with a local Sangria, which is really cheap here, something all of the alcohol drinkers on the tour are very happy about. Hopefully I will have some pics of Spain to put up soon, because we only have two nights here, before its onto the French Riviera.

Hope everybody is surviving without me (If you call that surviving:P)

Loving the pictures. I keep using them as backgrounds on my computer at work.
Sounds like you're having a fantastic time. Try not to drink too much when you go clubbing so you can still remember all the fun you're having!
