May 1 – Discovering Girona


After lunch and some time having a Skype chat with friends in Ireland, we went for a walk into the coastal town of Girona, Spain where we are staying. Here are some pictures taken along the way.

May 1 – First Day in Spain


All of our flights from Newport News to Barcelona went well with the added benefit of connecting with the conference coordinator in Atlanta as she was on the same flight from there to Barcelona. In Barcelona, we connected with two ladies coming to the conference from Russia and the hotel shuttle that had been sent to pick us up, and then headed to Eden Roc Hotel in Girona, Spain.

We did get some sleep on the airplane but still needed to sleep another 2-3 hours after getting to our room which has this beautiful view from the balcony:

After our beauty rest, we went down to the hotel restaurant for a late lunch and an even more enjoyable view:
