Arrived in Barcelona

Aloha Everyone,

Due to delayed aircraft arrival, our Air France flight left LAX nearly 45 minutes late. Fortunately, the pilot made up the time difference and landed at Charles de Gaulle Airport on time. In flight service in Premium Economy was excellent. There are over 300 entertainment programs available on demand.

J.J. enjoyed the movie, “Viceroy’s House” a historical biographical drama about Lord Mountbatten who served as India's last Viceroy in 1947. The story is about the life inside the British Viceroy’s house during the partition of India. I was delighted to finally watch “LaLa Land,” an original musical released in December 2016.

By the time we arrived at Hotel Ibis Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the two of us have been awake nearly 24 hours. Very happy to settle in our clean, modern, comfortable room. We took a short stroll around the neighborhood to purchase bottled water and fresh fruits. 

Bill and Pauline are from Australia. We shared the same shuttle bus from the airport. While J.J. and I asked them about travels within Australia, they were curious about our roving retirement.

Aloha -- Cathi
