Barcelona

9:45 flight from Dubrovnik (DBV) to Barcelona (BCN) Terminal 2 Norwegian Air flight DY5109 seat 25F

Epic fail on hotel booking at Holiday Inn Express, Molins De Rei. It was 30min from centre and in a really average suburb. Trains were frequent though so wasnt too much of a problem.

Attempted to get around most of the city and covered most of the sights including the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, Park Güell by Gaudí,, Santiago Calatrava’s Olympic Flame, Monestir de Pedralbes, Arc  de Triomf and National Art Museum of Catalonia

Even met up with Matt Littler for coffee in Sarria.

Samsung European Convention 96 – Marbella

Samsung’s European  Convention 1996  was to  Marbella in Spain. I attended as editor of Buying Cameras magazine.

British Airways flight BA 2473 – I was in Seat 4E

We stopped at the Melia Don Pepe Hotel
Cipriano Playas Del Doque
Hacienda La Venta
Puerto Banus

It was the famous trip of Prairie Oyster, Finger dancing prawns, clothes swapping by the pool, unexpected karaoke and hangover donkey riding…goes down as one of the best press trips in my career, made extra special by Dan, Rog, Liz and, of course, Mr Gary Banks. I drank some very strange stuff on that event.
