Elissa and Dave’s Live Big® Euro Trip
One of the stops on Elissa and Dave’s recent two week trip to Europe was London, England. Visits to London are special for Elissa and Dave as Elissa’s mother was British and she still has many relatives in the area. They had lunch with one of Elissa’s London relatives at St. Pancras. The view from the dining room at St. Pancras Hotel can be seen in the first picture below.
Since the Queen was not in residence at the time, they had a rare opportunity to tour Buckingham Palace, but unfortunately, they didn’t allow pictures!
They also visited the Victoria and Albert Museum and otherwise spent time enjoying Greenwich, where they were staying.
The next stop on their trip was Barcelona, Spain. Their hotel was right next door to the Barcelona Cathedral.
They visited the Picasso Museum, and several of Antonio Gaudi’s famous structures.
September 11 is the big national holiday for Catalonia (of which Barcelona is the heart). Everyone would be on the street anyway for the holiday, but even more so because there’s a big independence vote coming up.
