On our own again!

Well, yesterday grandbaby and daughter and her friend left for home. We hope that they had a great day getting home. They had to get up quite early. We did find them a taxi!

Here’s some news for travelers to Barcelona with young children: if you don’t have a car seat, you can only call and use special taxis allowed to carry children without car seats. You can’t just hail them from the curb. It’s a long story that we found out the hard way – fortunately, we took a long walk to the metro to get ourselves home from Gaudi’s Park. It could have been quite a worse story!

We miss them already! The chatter and smiles and fun of the baby was delightful. Having our daughter’s company was wonderful!

And a side benefit – we now have lighter suitcases – they brought an empty suitcase for us and took back our school books, and other souvenirs we’d piled up already! Just in time as well – as when we leave Barcelona on May 3, we are doing a trip via trains and buses with the goal of arriving in Nice, France by May 11 where we begin our river cruise. We need less luggage to haul and to take on the cruise. With internet access so difficult in Barcelona, it’s a challenge to figure out what we’re doing; but we’re going to wing it, as they say, and hopefully all will fit together!

No pictures today – although I have plenty! We found a Starbucks to get online, but there’s no plugs so I can’t use up my battery with picture uploading! I’ll get a few ready tonight and post them tomorrow. Today we’re off to see Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia so hopefully I’ll have some great pics tomorrow!

We love you doodle-bugs and miss you! We miss tripping over Carol and the shoes!
