The Done It List

Working our way through the bucket list of life and sharing the experience

The giant Botero bronze horse in the main arrivals hall of Barcelona airport welcomed us to this quirky city as we waited for our transfer to the Pullman Barcelona Skipper hotel.

Arriving some time around midnight in […]
