Day 2: Traveling to Barcelona

Day 2: We ready ourselves for our 7 hour drive to Barcelona from Nice.  Snacks packed. Comfy clothes on. Camera out.  The Rhone valley as our back drop is simply breathtaking.  The Pyrenees, as we near Spain beckons to be discovered (which we'll have to save for another trip).  We arrive in Barcelona in the afternoon and we're immediately drawn to the buildings, the grand streets which hint at the immense wealth it once had.  Food was absolutely delicious and the people--friendly and very laid back.
