On the Bus – April 11, 2014

“For me, Barcelona
Is more fun then the Maldives
There’s just so much to see
The Rambla full of vitality
And I loved the Sacra Family
Not to speak of Gaudi!”
He said in a confidential voice.

“No, I prefer the beach…
White sand and sea
Lounging by the water
Getting a great tan …
That’s my sort of vacation
and the Club Med
is so well-organized!”
She replied with a soft sigh.

I pondered upon these words
That one day I overheard
Upon a bus ride home
Full of school kids
Age 13 to 14 …
Little sophisticates sharing
All their summer adventures
In the magic world of tourism!

    • Lol…and I was even older when I visited Barcelona. Here kids go on vacation with their parents to exotic places when they’re young. Lving in Europe helps and until recently these package tours were not so very expensive…it was just odd hearing people so young speaking in such a blasè fashion about their vacations to exotic places.
