Barcelona - Last day

We had another stroll down to the beach Sunday morning, walking past Mariscal's lobster to see the surfers on the beach (see the end of the videos for that), and having a chilly coffee sitting by the beach at Buenas Migas.

On Saturday night, we went for a stroll around The Gothic Quarter, stopping off for some cocktails at Las Cuevas del Sorte, made by the friendly barman Alexandros.

During the day on Saturday, we headed up to Parc Güell again, to look around parts of the park we haven't seen on our previous visits. While sitting at the top we saw a family with some very cute puppies!

Liverpool trip - Out in the evening

In the evening we headed to the Matthew Street area of the City centre, where everybody seems to go (walking past, but not going into the legendary Cavern Club. We ended up in flares nightclub at the end, where some of us got well into the 70's groove! We eventually got cabs home about 1.30am, and had a nightcap in the hotel bar, before finally going to bed after a long day!

Liverpool trip - The game

The lowlight of the trip! West Ham's awful performance at Anfield, losing 3-0...The West Ham fans started turning a bit nasty against manager Avram Grant! After the game, we walked back to the hotel before changing to go out in the evening.
