We continued our walk through Barcelona by visiting the Ramblas. It was past midnight by now and the first hookers already did an effort to get a piece of me and my money. The Ramblas at night is not the place you want your daughter to be hanging around. The same goes for Place de la Real. But it was fun to see the difference between day and night when we came back a couple of days later.
When we came back the other day, the sun was shining and there were of course lots of tourists. We did some shopping, went on the bus tour, did some drinks en hung around in parc Guell. It was fun, but to really experience Barcelona I think it’s better to spend a whole week or even longer in the city itself. We now got a first impression of the city, but I’m sure it’s got more to offer than the things we saw. So this one will be continued!
After staying one-and-a-half week in Vilanova we went to Pareloup to spend the last days of our holiday over there.
When we hit the road we first got the idea of ging into Barcelona to take some shots of our bug and some highlights. It was very cool to ride through Barcelona with our bug. They don’t see that every day over there and it was nice to see some people turning their heads and camera’s when shooting the Sagrade, just because of on old bug entering the scene! 🙂
After that we hit the road again to go to France. We didn’t take the highway because we wanted to get to see some of the beautiful countrysides…and we did!!
The last days of our holiday we spent on a camping at Lac de Pareloup with Marc, Tanja and Jaro. They were already there for the holiday and we joined them for some relaxing and BBQ’ing. The first day we drove to Millau. We drove through the great countryside and took a look at the bridge from below. What a view!!
After some relaxing it really was time to get back home. Back to our own bed, toilet, shower, garden and city…great…
It was our first time to ride this far with our bug. I think we drove about 3500 km in just 3 weeks. That’s quite a lot for a 6 volt VW bug and it was great fun. We got bad weather, sunshine, lots of wind and climbed upto a 1100 meters high. Quite a performance for our bug…and us..
