Tapas Dessert Cart
Jeff and I made it to Barcelona!
We spent most of our day going back and forth from our hotel to the airport to a shuttle downtown to drop off some of our luggage that we won't be needing till we are back from Italy.
That's right tomorrow we are going to Italy for 8 days.
I have never in my life wanted to go to Barcelona.
Not that I had anything against it but it just was never on my travel list.
Now that I am here I love it!
Tonight we had tapas for the first time ever.
Tapas are a mixture of different appetizers or snacks a.k.a miniature food!
I love miniature food and tonight I ate 4 mini sandwiches with different cured meats and cheeses.
Then for dessert the waiter wheeled over the dessert cart!
I have always wanted a dessert trolley that contained mini desserts wheeled over to me table side.
It was a dream come true and don't even get me started about the mini strawberry tart with miniature strawberries on it!
The waiter could see my excitement so I said "It's my first day in Barcelona." He replied with "Happy Birthday." He thought when I said first day that I said birthday. This was one of many cultural/ translation mistakes that occurred today.
