Beach Bums

sunny 0 °F

Hi again,

We are here in Cunit, Spain. We´ve taken a brief break from relaxing on the beach in order to check our email. We´ve also come to plan our trip from here to Madrid. We are looking at either an overnight train or a cheap flight, if possible. It´s been really nice laying around in the sun, but we´re also excited to see Madrid. Ben has visited there before and has fond memories and good stories about it.

Yesterday we relaxed on the beach, played badminton and frisbee, and grilled out all day. It rained pretty hard last night so we were up late waiting for it to die down. We got to hang out and drink beer with some Germans who were stuck out of their tents, too, so that was interesting. On Saturday, we took a train into Barcelona and had a really good time walking around. We saw lots of cool architecture that Antoni Gaudi did- the famous Park Guell, with the mosaic lizard, a huge cathedral called La Sagrada Familia, and a very neat house, Casa Batllo. We also walked around on the streets, went in some shops, and walked by the ocean and in parks. Barcelona is a fun place! Today we plan to laze around again on the beach. We will leave for Madrid tonight or tomorrow.

That´s all for now. See you all again soon!

Mariel and Ben

We're a few days late in letting you know, but we've made it to Spain safely. We got here on Wednesday and found a campsite, which proved to be farther away from the ocean than we expected and full of RVs. After getting about 2 hours of sleep, we transferred to a hotel downtown. We are moving again to another campsite, which is about 50 km south of Barcelona and 30km south of where we are now, Sitges.

We spent all day yesterday hanging out at the beach and wandering around town. It's very nice here, and the beaches are spectacular. The water is amazingly blue and clear.

Sorry for the short entry, but we've got to go catch the train to Cunit!

Hasta luego,
Ben y Mariel
