It took us about 10 hours to drive to Barcelona. We spent the night in Nimes, France (beautiful city) on the way down. On a side note, if you ever see a Formule 1 hotel, run fast ) After a series of unfortunate events we found ourselves hotel-less. Trying to find a play-pen, dog friendly, 5 person hotel in Europe is pretty much impossible…….dog friendly being the easiest to find but not so crib friendly. Bottom line, run and run fast, from all Formule 1s.
We stayed in the Rambla Poblenou part of Barcelona which was walking distance to the beach. So after checking into our apartment our first and last stop that day was……the beach.
