Mad Scientess Jane Expat
The trip has been written up. The journal entries for each day are linked below, although I know at least one person has already been peeking.
Day 1: First steps, strong drinks and social butterflies.
Day 2: Markets, modernisme and absinthe.
Day 3: Single serving friends, hangovers and mint tea.
Day 4: Footie footie, footie, oh, and Montjuïc.
Day 5: Gaudí, Gaudí, Gaudí, oh, and Marco's birthday.
If you don't have time for any of the others, please check out Day 5, as it features some gorgeous photos. I don't feel arrogant saying that because that's got far more to do with Antoni Gaudí than it does with me.
The link to day 5's not working. ::weep::
That's because it would help if I hadn't transposed two of the numbers. It should work now.
I was just sneaky and hit the next entry button. =)
I've been practicing. And as we all know, practice makes habit.
Yes, the opportunity to travel cheaply around the British Isles and Europe is one that I've tried to take advantage of as much as possible since moving here.
Are you thinking of the Chapel of Bones in Portugal? Where the whole interior is lined with the bones of monks? I think that's the famous one on the Iberian peninsula, although there are other European locations, like Rome, that have bone-lined crypts too.

I'd been thinking of learning to design for and apply shotcrete
, and I think you've convinced me. Thanks again for sharing. In addition to being inspiring, your travel entries always, inexplicably, put me in the mood for a pint.
