29 September 2015: Managed 6 hours or so sleep in Barcelona at the Airport Hotel.
I relive last year’s fantastic holiday by bringing posts over from the trip blog. This doesn’t aim to be identical to the trip blog, but an improvement, with text edits and more / better photos. Find all these posts under the tag: Spain2015.
After our plane from Marrakech was delayed several hours we eventually arrived in Barcelona in the very early hours of the morning and took a taxi to the hotel. When we arrived, and the taxi had gone, the folks at the desk told us we didn’t have a reservation. We knew we did though.
It turns out we’d booked (and I’m writing this part more than a year later, from memory) for the Hotel BAH Barcelona Airport but had taken the taxi to the Hotel Airport (or something very like that). Yes. Two hotels with almost identical names.
Finally we sorted it out, took another taxi just down the road a bit, and finally crashed into bed.
We were able to sleep for a few hours, get some food and drink, and then head back to the airport for the next leg.
Next a 2 hour flight to Zurich, change planes, then a 12.5 hour flight to Singapore.
