Recap Barcelona, Paris and Munich

Friends and Family,

I'm sure half of you have already forgot about me! Don't worry, I'm still alive and floating around. After my 36 hour excursion to get home I got to watch the cubbies play at Wrigley field during my layover in Chicago. When I finally got back to San Diego I attempted to play in the OTL invitational, a 6v6 socccer tournament (which we won), slept for a day and then went to the opening day of the Del Mar races. So I'm obviously ready to get back on a plane and head to Costa Rica. But before I get going on my next adventure I wanted to give a recap and post a few pictures that i was able to grab from the disposbales.

Now to backtrack a little, in Barcelona, Jamie and I got to visit the Nou Camp, the stadium where Barcelona plays. The sucky part was that it was a Sunday and everything closes on Sundays in Spain so we couldn't get in but I atleast got the picture below.

Now after leaving Barcelona partying all night with the Spaniards, Jamie and I made it into Paris with out much sleep. So of course we sleep practically the first day in Paris but luckily we had two more days of walking, biking and going underground. See pics below.

Taking Bike tours in Europe are the way to go. These pictures were taken along the Seine river in Paris

After hitting the Louvre and Notre Dame, Jamie and I decided, hey, how about we check out that Eiffel Tower deal. Eventhough we didn't have directions we managed to find this huge ass tower along the Seine. We then went to the top of this huge beast and the scenery was amazing. Unfortunatley none of the pictures came out since it was night and we were a mile high. But take my word, it was pretty cool!

(Yes, I wore my Fabregas jersey every day in Paris)

Now our last day in Paris, our train to Frankfurt was full so we had to take the train later that night. Since we had most of the day to kill we headed over to check out some catacombs and saw some cool stuff, well, atleast i thought so. Supposedly over 40,000 bodies were buried in these catacombs which were deep under the city. Here's a a pretty cool picture

After getting to Frankfurt, I dropped off Jamie at the Airport and headed over to Munich. In Munich I didn't do much other than walk around, bike around and drink at the HofbrÀuhaus. Oh yea, I also went paragliding over one of the most beautiful castles i have ever seen in one of the most beautiful countrysides I have ever seen. It was definetely one of the coolest experiences ever!

Ok, my bags are packed and im ready to hit up Costa Rica tonight. Since my picture limit is almost up I'll have to wait until early August to post any Costa Rica pictures. Until then, stay safe and I'll talk to you soon!

That picture of the catacombs is pretty awesome, and be carefull on the Mountain of Death over there in South America. Oh, and your a loser for not posting a picture of Wrigley Field...its an American icon. Come back safe so the "I" can punch you.
