Barcelona, Spain - 2015 May 31

What a difference a two-hour plane ride can make.

Up at 8 AM with a slight hangover. Walked a mile in the misting cold, past no-less than 15 Ferrari's on my way to the train station. Made me contimplate my life decisions for a second.

But then I landed in Barcelona! When I arrived in London, it was into the middle of a protest; when I arrived in Barcelona, it was into the middle of a concert.

Someone told me about the AirBNB app, where people rent out a room or whole apartment for very cheap. Good timing because I've hit my limit with the hostels. I booked a "flat by the sea" for tomorrow night ($30).

Awesome weather here, perfect temperature. The ocean is crystal clear too, I wasn't expecting that.

London - 2015 May 30

Another long day of walking around the city. My legs are hurting after 11 days, right leg feels hyper-extended.

One last visit to Big Ben, then caught the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.

Visited the Natural History, Science, and Victoria and Albert Museums.

Staying across street from Hyde Park, this is like being in a different city.

London - 2015 May 29

Rainy day so spent most of it in the National Gallery and British Museum again.

Booked a room near Hyde Park for tomorrow night, and then a flight to Barcelona for Sunday afternoon ($84). Ready to get out of this cold weather.

London - 2015 May 28

Outside touring London from 9 AM to 8 PM, including the Bank of England Museum, and the British Museum.

Finished the day with a beer at The Wellington, just across the street from my room (I'm back in the mix).

Looking forward to the nightlife in Soho and Leicester Square tonight.

If I had a high-paying finance job here, I wouldn't mind living in London...
