After we passed the third one we realised the real reason for their presence. In our mind it begged various questions. […]

On Friday we decided to visit Barcelona, not one of our better decisions. It is a typical huge urban conurbation with a mass of human beings all trying to occupy the same space. We paid forty two euros for a tour bus, it was crap. The commentary was poor with no real orientation, abandoned it […]
