Ha. That's great, Scott!

How are you folks doing in getting from one to the other, and locating lodging?
I've been up on the computer late into the night[s] trying to sort it all :shock: .

I see on the internet that there is an overnight train daily that leaves Paris late afternoon/early evening and arrives in Barcelona the following morning, with private cabins, dinner and braekfast. I am sure it is more costly than flying, but it seems like a very relaxing way to make the trip. I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with this train service and might provide feedback. Thanks in advance!

This is a good service, you only have to consider if you will be able to sleep in a train.
Maybe you should consider flying to have more time to visit Barcelona.

Hi there,
I'll be attending the Barcelona concert and will join any meet up organised there. from what I recall from the 2009 concert, the only transportation available after the show was a bus to placa de Espanya, so I've booked the same hotel as in 2009 (placa de Espanya is also a convenient location as there's a direct bus from the airport)

We are going to start plannig.
Could you please confirm how many of you will join us?
I don't know if some of you are one or two people.
It would also be helpful to know if you will be in Barcelona on second, third or even fourth October.
Waiting for your news,

Bea

Hi from Barcelona friends.
We are considering organising a guided tour in Barcelona plus lunch on Oct 3rd.
As most of you have already visited Barcelona, we are looking for something special, a Picasso tour or a Jewish Barcelona....
October is still high season for guided tours, so we would need to know how many of you would be interested.
We are also trying to have a "musical" meeting on 2nd evening.

Please help us and answer ASAP!!
