REVIEW OF UNIVERSAL'S CABANA BAY BEACH RESORT


We had a great experience during our 5 night stay at Cabana Bay. The hotel was great!  There is a free shuttle to and from the park with a short wait time

I have stayed at three Universal resorts and this one hands down has the best shuttle service.  The busses were continually running which was not my experience at the two other resorts.  The view of the Volcano at Volcano Bay was amazing.


Parked outside the lobby near the entrance are cars from the 1950s.  The lobby is huge and the walls are covered with bright murals carrying the 1950's theme throughout the resort.

FLYING SPIRIT AIRLINES - Luggage Allowance & Covid

 


My daughter and I spent spring break in Orlando and domestic tickets have been super cheap during Covid.  Currently there are tickets available from Dallas to Orlando for around $34 round trip.

I was not sure what to expect since I have not flown in the past year.  Especially when dealing with a budget airline like Spirit.

DID I CHANGE MY TOP PLACES TO VISIT IN BARCELONA?



The length of time you will be in Barcelona will dictate what you have time to see and how long you will be able to spend at each location.  

I wrote a post in 2016 on TOP PLACES TO SEE IF YOU ONLY HAVE 1 DAY IN BARCELONA

If you only have a short period of time to visit (for example, you arrived by cruise ship), you should purchase tickets for the hop-on-hop-off bus and see as much as possible.

VISITING THE SAGRADA FAMILIA - BARCELONA

The Sagrada Familia is one of the most famous landmarks in Barcelona and is a must-see if you are in the city.  This awe-inspiring basilica is the work of Antoni Gaudi. Construction on the Sagrada Família began over a century ago (1883) and is still ongoing.  





 It is no wonder that thousands of people choose to visit this attraction.   It is truly one of the best Antoni Gaudí works out there, together with Park Güell!

Quick Tour around the Gothic Quarter - Barcelona


My friends and I flew to Barcelona and spent a few days there in order to get the cheapest flights to Malta. I knew I wanted to explore the Gothic Quarters again so we booked an apartment through Booking.com in this district

The Barri Gòtic is magnificent area to wander around and get lost as you traverse the narrow medieval streets filled with shops, restaurants, bars, and picture perfect squares.
