Gothic photo from our new Airbnb a 1920s Spanish mansion we got totally by luck. Right opposite Park Guell this massive place also has a mega co-working conference happening in the front lawn as we speak. La vida es una buena aventura. #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #barcelona

Spanish Olga is called Pixel and she's a complete attention kitty. Her sister Raina is more discerning (so obviously we want her love more) but both led us hopefully to their food bowl. Sorry guys we're not authorised to feed you but here have a chin tickle. (I just sneezed. Please cross your fingers it was just a one time thing. ) #traveldiary #minnamoon #abroadabroad #barcelona #catsagram

All settled in at our lovely Barcelona Airbnb in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. The house is a third floor walk up with old school floors and two very friendly cats. This is the view from the balcony of the very narrow streets below. Pinch me I'm in Spain! #abroadabroad #minnamoon #barcelona

Flat house (not really) in Kreuzberg. Lovely optical illusion though. Walked through the streets of this rapidly gentrified neighbourhood to a ramen place where we ate our weight in noodles and all the cycles had a little child seat at the back. #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #berlin #germany

Rainy day here in Berlin and between meeting friends we've holed ourselves up at a cafe in Prenzlauer with hot chocolate and this amazing book. Got on to Elizabeth Jane Howard after reading an article in the Guardian where Hilary Mantel said she was her favourite writer. Hilary being one of the writers I would like to one day BE I took the recommendation seriously. What a delight. Marking Time is book two of the Cazalet Chronicles quartet about an English family before during and after the…

Fake smiling at the S Bahn station on our way to meet a friend for tapas and enough sangria to fell a horse. Preparing for Spain in the best way. Hi Berlin! #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #germany

Sunset at 8 pm a long elaborate affair because it only got dark at 10.  In a bid to stay awake so that I could go to sleep at a regular time and fix my clock we went for a half walk half bike ride to the woods near the house yesterday. Just about to leave for Berlin a long road trip from here but excited about going on the Autobahn! #traveldiary #abroadabroad #minnamoon #germany

Frankfurt! I'm now on hour 28 with no sleep and reaching the slightly zombie like state that sleep deprivation does to you. A combination of super hyper and also physically exhausted. That didn't stop us from wandering about Frankfurt a bit since we're leaving for Berlin tomorrow. Here's a picture of the bridge over the River Main following which we ate sausages and fries. Start as you mean to go on right? #traveldiary #minnamoon #abroadabroad #frankfurt #germany
