L'Aquarium de Barcelona, Port Vell, Catalonia, Spain - 23rd October 2017

The second full day of our Barcelona trip sees us visit the aquarium down at Port Vell. In the evening, the boys go for a sleep-over at Evelyn and Louise's apartment, so we get an actual night off to go out for beer and tapas.
