Pyrenees: Day 6

Today we went to the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres.

Pyrenees: Day 6, Barcelona - Figueres - 1st September 2013 (107 miles)

Adult Price: €12 per person (at time of writing)

Rob and Casey decided they'd rather spend the day in Barcelona and near the campsite, enjoying the beach and having a drink or two and planning different scenarios depending on the diagnosis with the bike. So, Emma and I went to the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres as planned.

So we headed up to Figureres, not the most interesting route on the trip thus far, but we avoided the motorway as per usual, opting to use the national roads instead. The town appeared small with not much activity, other than the museum itself which was an unusual site!

If you are familiar with Dali's work then I needn't say much more really, however there are a few pictures here to give you an idea.

On the way back we stopped at the Nou Camp, home of FC Barcelona (I'd always wanted to go). Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to have a peek inside the stadium, so the shop sufficed. Official team shirts cost around the €100 mark, which is a bit on the steep side, so I opted for a casual shirt for half the price. It was my souvenir from Barcelona :).

I really can't remember what we did for food that evening! But we were all very keen to see the situation with Casey's bike the next day... hoping of course that it was going to be good news...
