Day 16 - Sunday 13 September 2015
We woke up and got ready as we were meeting Jazz's family friends, Steve and Ann, at 11.30am.
We met them at there hotel. They were travelling with Liz, Ann's twin sister, and her husband Ray.
We wandered down the street from where they were staying and found a nice restaurant. We got lunch ended up sitting there eating and drinking for 3 hours, it was really lovely.
As we were sitting there, one street performer after another appeared and entertained all of the customers. We think they must have been on some kind of schedule as they came and left like clockwork.
We had our re-booked side car tour at 3.30pm so shortly before said our goodbyes and headed off to the meeting spot out the from of the Hard Rock Cafe.
Our tour guide was a man named Juan Manuel, he was Spanish/Brazilian.
We had already seen to a lot of the usual places they go because we'd been in Barcelona for a week already so discussed our options for a few minutes and then set off in the side car. We drove past Palau de la Musica and then went to Parc de la Cuitadella where we got out to walk around and see the ponds and fountains.
We then continued on and went to see Hospital de Sant Pau, which we couldn't tell was a hospital because it was so grand looking.
We drove past the old bull fighting ring (which they turned into a shopping centre), the Olympic stadium and parts of Passieg de Gracia but some of the streets were blocked off so we didn't go the way they normally go.
We then drove up a bit of a hill to Montjuic where we got out to have a look at the gorgeous view of the city and take some pictures.
As we were looking out over the view Manuel got out a little bottle of champagne and poured us two glasses.
After the tour Jazz wanted to go to this €1 shot bar she'd been to the last time she was in Barcelona so we got the Manuel to drop us near there. When we got there however it was closed.
We decided to go and get dinner and then come back later. We wandered up the street a little bit looking for a nice restaurant. We stopped at this little place which had a nice menu and ordered some tapas & sangria. This was our last night in Barcelona and the food wasn't that great so we were a bit disappointed.
Because the restaurant wasn't great we didn't stay that long and when we went back to the shot bar it was still closed.
Jazz had been talking about wanting crepes since we first arrived in Barcelona so we found a nice gelato place and she got a crepe with Nutella, banana and ice cream. It was amazing! I got a scoop of mango ice cream which was also delicious.
After Jazz finished her crepe she felt a migraine coming on, I said it was from too much sugar, so we went back to the apartment and had an early night.
