after valencia we headed over to barcelona. using the hop-on-hop-off-bus we got to see all the sights. very nice city, but very busy and warm at this time of the year.

we decided to change the flights a bit and go to spain a bit earlier to catch up with the newly-weds. it was a great day that started by driving through the mountains in alberts mazda mx5, then we all had a look at an old maintain village, headed to the beach for a swim and ended up with dinner at the beach. all in all a great day and well worth the extra flights. thanks albert and oxana !

today we took a drive to the north of holland to the province of friesland. the first thing that i noticed is that there are wind turbines everywhere over here ! as far as the eye can see, no matter where you are there are wind turbines.. and they look good !! they will start building wind parks offshore in the ocean soon as well.
