CALPE U3A member Dave Stockton wrote to RTN to say a ‘BIG THANK YOU’ to the Calpe U3A Travel Group for organising the Black Friday Pre-Christmas trip to Barcelona recently:

“On Thursday November 23, Calpe U3A set off on their last trip for 2017 – a Black Friday Pre- Christmas to Barcelona. 50 members boarded the coach at 8.00am and set off in fine weather. We arrived at the city centre hotel in the early evening.

Barcelona is a bustling, busy city with many fine sites. On the four-day three-night visit we covered many of the main attractions: Plaza De Cataluna, Montjuic view point, Catherdralof the scared family La Rambla and the fantastic port area, which has some of the world’s largest super yachts moored.

The city at night has majestic fountains putting on a light show set to music.

We all had a treat on the last day with a visit to the mountain monastery of Monserrat(the saw-toothed mountain) with its train station, funicular railway and cable car. Most of us attended the mass in the ancient Benedictine monastery church and heard the angelic choir singing.

All too soon we arrived back in Calpe on the Sunday with many happy memories of a great pre -Christmas trip. A big thank you to the Calpe U3A Travel Group.”
