Days 33-34: Barcelona > Dubai > Sydney
I couldn’t believe that I was already on the home stretch!
I had dinner at a well-rated restaurant called Viana on the penultimate night and it was a delicious dinner to end on: I discovered a new favourite cocktail -a blackberry mojito, tempura octopus, slowly braised beef cheeks and a beautiful house-made white chocolate liquor with which to end the meal.
I also finally found the paella and sangria that I had been searching for throughout Spain, at lunch, right before I headed to the airport... it was literally across the road from my hotel. I cleaned up the paella whilst watching Federer clean up the Shanghai Masters in straight sets. 😋
The flight from Barcelona to Dubai was wonderfully entertaining, especially with a features on Godolphin to watch, in addition to the documentary of ‘Harry and Snowman’, a famous showjumping duo based in the States (Harry literally bought Snowman off the truck as he was being carted off to the glue factory). The Dubai to Sydney leg was uneventful - I was on standby and thankfully landed a seat in the exit aisle. Btw, that triple chocolate torte that was part of the flight meal was #ahhmazing
6.5 hours (Barcelona to Dubai) + 2 hours (Dubai stopover) + 13-ish hours (Dubai to Sydney) later, ‘Big Bird’ safely landed and I was so happy to see my parents waiting for me at the other end.
Am home sweet home and ready for the next adventure!
