The Honeymoon

For our Honeymoon, we went to Barcelona, I loved it there - it reminded me alot of Galway here in Ireland, only bigger! For the most part the people were very friendly and helpful
We left For the airport in the early hours of Monday morning, we had been married on the Saturday and so was feeling worn out - I was lucky to sleep all the way from Galway to Dublin airport (3hours)
We stayed in Hotel Soho, a three star hotel in walking distance from the main shopping street, The hotel had a roof top bar and pool and was wonderful - a funny memory I have is this: I wanted to take a swim in the pool so bad but we were always so busy during the day - so one night after getting back I decided to have swim there and then! but the weather was very windy, When I first jumped in it was wonderful - I remember floating on my back looking up at the stars, it was so quite and it lightly began to drizzle, but then it got so windy and it began making waves in the pool and I kept getting bashed up against the side of the pool!
Flashing my wedding band!
I found this lovely yarn store All you Knit is Love and was delighted to hear they ran a stitch n bitch group - now the yarn in there was overpriced extremely!
Here I am with the owners a husband and wife team and Ken - a man from Canada, and Ravelry who just happened to be over on holiday too, I agreed to go along to the stitch group the next night and was looking forward to it!, But when I was at the group I was so disappointed as they all chatted in Spanish and I felt very pushed out and almost like I was being talked about! honestly they never even said Hello! so I waited a respectable amount of time before getting up to go, it was then that the owner told the women I run a stitch group in Ireland and the women started chatting to me in English asking me what the group was like - I was livid. they could talk English the whole time! so I told them my group was a very friendly and would never leave someone without so much saying hello! and I walked out.
Morgan saw this on the side of a building and thought it looked like me! What do you think?(below)

A door for giants!

Morgan getting friendly with Mr Frog!
Me getting a little too friendly!!

Found this wonderful yarn store by mistake - the only down fall to it was that all the yarn was behind the counter so you had to ask to touch it and the woman in the middle had No English and I had No Spanish so the wonderful girl on the left helped to translate! and I left the shop with a great heavy bag of yarn!
The heavens opened but we were still happy!

We also got to the Barcelona football grounds

By the time we got home after our honeymoon we were wreaked!
