Life in the Slow Lane: LSNED DAY 18 &19

LSNED DAY 18 &19

DAY 18

I learned that there is no way I could live in a city....visit, yes...but actually live among all this noise -no!

DAY 19

I learned that it is more exhausting to walk around slowly, than it is to do so at a fair pace.....and also that DD has infinite amounts of patience with my dad. She walked around Barcelona with her Grandad attached to her arm- and wouldn't let either mum or I help him.

We have managed to see quite a few things...and dad, though very slow, has coped well with the walking. As long as we have plenty of stops for him to have a little seat (and a cup of tea), he is doing much better than  I anticipated...a recurring lesson methinks-don't underestimate the determination of my dad!

These are a few of the day's highlights

La Sagrada Familia

Take care of you

  1. What a lovely DD you have! Love that your dear old dad appears to have a huge book growing out of his head ...

  2. What a lovely thing to learn about your daughter. Long may that patience continue (so you can use it too lol)

  3. That cathedral is one of my most favourite pieces of architecture...I could have looked at it all day when we were in Barcelona....sadly we were only there for one day.
