Trip Report Spain and Dublin- 2 weeks in Europe

Jump to last reply

This is the first time I have ever written a trip report, even though I have taken many trips to Europe. I hope you find it informative as well as entertaining!

Spain has never been at the top of my destination list, but at the urging of our exchange student from 2 summers ago, my husband and I decided to visit. We flew from JFK to Dublin and then on to Barcelona on Aer Lingus, which we got at a very good price. My husband hated Aer Lingus, he said the seats were the most uncomfortable that he ever sat in. I thought they felt like every other plane I’d been on.

We arrived in Dublin very early on Friday morning and had to go through security several times just to go to our connecting flight. I thought it was a little disorganized at the airport. The lines were very long and in the process, they confiscated 2 yogurts that I had forgotten I had in the carry on. Who knew that they qualified as a liquid?!

We arrived in Barcelona mid morning and took a bus to the city. Our hotel was located right off the Placa Catalunya- Hotel Atlantis- business type, clean, decent breakfast. It was too early to check in so we took a stroll down Las Ramblas. First stop- La Boqueria. What a wonderful market! Colorful, noisy, beautiful produce, olives, meats, Jamon, and lots of fish. We slowly walked all the way to the harbor and slowly back again. After a little rest in the hotel, we started out again. Our goal was to meet up with cousins from Germany who happened to be also visiting Barcelona at the same time. We took a walk through the Barrio Gothic on our way down to the harbor again. Loved the old quarters, lots of narrow streets, gothic architecture, musicians playing beautiful music and singing.

We met with our German family and ate dinner on Barceloneta in a restaurant called Peru- not my idea of what to eat in Spain. Wouldn’t recommend- I would have taken a suggestion from this website, trip advisor or Rick Steves. Better luck tomorrow.
