We headed south towards Barcelona and found a large resort at Vilanova i la Gelthrú.  This site had outside swimming pools and an indoor pool plus a restaurant and a spa.  It was a lovely clean site and was the sort of place the British come and stay over the winter months.  They even had language and dance classes.  It had a holiday camp atmosphere but after two days it felt more like a prison camp and we were eager to hit the road again.

There was a daily bus that took you into Barcelona, a journey of about 45 minutes.  We have never been to Barcelona and wondered what it was like.  A city?  Big?  Hot?  We didn’t catch that bus.
