In a few hours my wife and I are hopping on a plane to Barcelona for a few days break. I managed to get some very cheap tickets a few weeks back and have been looking forward to it ever since. It's our first trip to mainland Spain where I've wanted to go for years and years.
I've not done much research leading up to this but plan to relax a bit and take in as many sites as we can given time and money. The Barcelona Metro is supposed to be quite good so we think we can get around quite easily and our hotel is in a fairly decent/central area. Sadly my Spanish is nearly nonexistent but as usual I know how to order a beer. La Rambla here we come.
