I parted ways with my travel buddies at Keflavik International Airport and made my way to much warmer waters in Barcelona, where I met up with: (1) sister traveling abroad for the summer, (2) sister and brother-in-law fresh from honeymooning in Mallorca, and (3) sister and Dad flying in to join the fun.
We hit the ground running our first day and saw as more than you would think possible in three short days.
