We got up Sunday morning, did laundry, said goodbye to Zach, Logan & Graham, who had been here for 8 days, and took off for Barcelona, Spain. Our flight out of SLC was 45 minutes late, so there was concern we would make our connecting flight in ORD and even if we did whether or not Jim’s checked bag would make it. We got to the gate in ORD 35 minutes before our flight to FRA was scheduled to leave & were relieved to see United provide a bus from the A terminal to the C terminal. By the time we got to the gate they were boarding Group 4, the last group. No way will Jim’s bag make it…

It was an uneventful 8 hour flight to Frankfurt, and we landed Monday morning at 0930-our 41st anniversary. After a 4 hour layover we took off for the 2 hour flight to Barcelona, arriving at 1630. Next stop baggage claim, where we took a seat and waited. Lo & behold, around the carousel came Jim’s bag!! We were shocked but ecstatic!

A 30 minute bus ride, followed by a 3 stop subway ride, followed by a 3 block walk had us arriving at our apartment. It is a cute 5 room apartment-kitchenette, living room/dining room, bathroom, & 2 bedrooms, one with a twin bed & the other with a king. It’s great!

After dropping the bags off we walked to stay awake and stopped for photos at Gaudi’s famous, never ending construction, cathedral. There is more construction going on now than there was 14 years ago when we were here.
