EasyJet Blogger Trip to Barcelona – Part 5 (Orange Bikes & Human Towers)

Just when you thought my tales of Barcelona were over. They’re not. I last told you about the very beautiful W Hotel that we stayed in and bored you senseless no doubt with photo after photo of the view from my bedroom.  Sorry – but you have to admit, it was gorgeous. Anyway, after we […]
