Montjuïc and Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Barcelona, Catalunya - 30th April 2005

A vigorous non-stop walk all the way from our hostel off La Rambla to the top of Montjuïc is hard enough work on a pretty hot day, but is worth the view from the top. Occasionally the view through hordes of tourists is clear enough to even see over the whole city. Then, The Boy Phil wants to go and see the Nou Camp, which is some kind of footballing facility. Finally, we end up where Ninja M's Kuk-sool Won competition is meant to be - Sant Feliu de Guíxols - only to discover that no-one has heard of it, and we were probably meant to be in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, or at the very least some other Sant Filiu other than the one we were in. Luckily we made it back to the airport in time, after an arduous train/bus/taxi ride back, but it was close.
