Friday July 21st, 2017
TODAYS MILEAGE – 225 miles or 362 kilometres
TRIP MILEAGE – 13,853 miles or 22,294 kilometres
With the dawning of a new day, comes the realization that our arrival in Barcelona would bring a close to Part I of the trip, but in the interim, we spent most of the morning hugging the coastline of the Belearic Sea, up into Spain’s second largest city.
We got in around lunchtime and as no rooms were ready, we parked up all our goods & chattels before heading out for some lunch. We met up about 2 hours later and Fredy took us out on our final orientation walk for the next couple of hours. We ended dropping four of the group at the opera, while Fredy and I headed out for a few "adult beverages" on our Pat Malone.
