After making our way from France to Spain, we high-tailed it for Barcelona. Our time in the EU is coming to an end because all of our efforts to get a visitor Schengen Visa extension have stalled out. The wheels of the Schengen Bureaucracy turn very slowly and we don't think an extension is going to happen. We also have to leave a few days (in our 90 day limit) for our stop-over in the Canary Islands before we head back west to the Caribbean.
So, in an effort to maximize our time left, we wanted to spend a few days in Barcelona and really take in this beautiful city. It did not disappoint! The Sagrada Familia Cathedral was mind-blowing. It was beautifully conceived by Antoni Gaudi, the architect of many buildings in Barcelona. It left a real impression on all of us, including the kids!
