It was time for our nearly three months in Europe to come to an end. We weren’t unhappy with having to return to Barcelona to fly back to the Bay Area. Our roving retirement isn’t like a vacation, it’s like living in lots of different places while managing life stuff, much of which is in the Bay Area.
Having savored our final meal in San Sebastian, it was time to make haste to get to Nice for our date with visa renewal destiny. We decided to break up our 500+ mile journey with overnight stops in Zaragoza, Barcelona, and Montpellier. This made for a very roving retirement stretch of days.
Our European nomadic adventure continues south of Barcelona with visits to three different and noteworthy monasteries. We followed up the monasteries with a few days in the lovely beach town of Sitges that we had heard about many times.
Neither Mike nor I had ever visited Barcelona before so we figured we would try to see as much as we could in the week we were there. But we also made time to wander in many interesting neighborhoods.
Our roving retirement has finally gotten back on track in Barcelona Spain. We spent a wonderful week absorbing Barcelona, a city that neither of us has been to before.
