Judy, John, Barcelona

Friday morning, we dropped Mollie off at Camp Bow Wow, and then headed to the airport. We were plenty early. Our flight was to leave at 10:30 arriving in Newark at 12:15. We knew we would have a 7 hour layover since our flight to Barcelona wasn'scheduled to leave until 7:15 in the evening. Now the adventure begins.....

First our flight to Newark was delayed by an hour. No problem we've got all day. Then they asked for volunteers to give up their seats. 10 minutes later we were in a Limo going to Detroit. They gave us 2 three hundred dollar travel vouchers plus paid 270.00 to get us to Detroit to catch a 1:50 flight to Newark. We got to Detroit to find out that our flight has been delayed by 1 hour. Well we made it to Newark with almost 2 hours to spare, only to find our flight to Barcelona had been delayed. We finally left the ground at 9:00 and arrived in Barcelona this morning at 9:50 local time or 3:50 in the morning Grand Rapids time. We found our bus to head to our hotel area, dropped our bags off and went out for lunch. By the time we got back to the hotel, our room was ready so we took a 4 hour nap.

Dinner is a late night deal here, so we didn't even go out until 8:00. After a dinner of Tapas and some desert at the gelato stand we headed back in for the evening. Bob and Linda arrive on the train in the morning. We will meet them at the station and head out for a little sight seeing. All for now.
