Barcelona: Love at first sight & bite

Arriving in to Barcelona right at sunset was a beautiful sight.  The skyline was lit up and the water was beautiful.  Getting through immigration and customs was a piece of cake and we figured out how to store our larger bags at the airport quite quickly.  A simple train ride into town, connecting to the metro and then a couple hundred yards to the hotel through quiet neighborhood streets.  Checked in to the hotel and the out to wander a bit for dinner.  Incredibly easy and pleasant and quite picturesque.  Love at first sight.

We chose a small tapas restaurant, Cata 1.81, for dinner – only 6 tables inside plus the bar area – and sat in the bar for a couple hours drinking and snacking on some ridiculously delicious food.  Salt cod ravioli, squid & Iberico ham with mushrooms & miso sauce, dried sausage and several other small plates.  Plus several glasses of Spanish cava and red wine.  Love at first bite.

Off to explore more now and to steel ourselves for the New Years celebration here tonight!
