We woke up this morning looking forward to a sunny day at the waterpark "Illa Fantasia". Unfortunatley, the weather was not on our side as the sky was full of grey rain clouds and the insane heat from previous days had gone. However, having been to Norfolk for the last godness knows how many years on holiday, the weather cannot put me down! So I told Lennie that we should ignore the nasty weather and go anyway. Neither of us had been to a big water park before so we were literally like two little kids (although I was certainly more grown up as I had to keep telling Leonard to STOP RUNNING!). We had a brilliant time there on swirly slides, vertical slides and many others. After the first vertical slide, which left us both shook up and scared for our lives, we soon got into the swing of them.
Unfortunatley, being the acident prone person that I am I had to ruin it. Have you seen the inflatable rings that you can sit in when you go down a slide at these places? Well as me and Len came to the bottom of the slide in ours, I slid practically all the way through with just my hands and feet hanging and got completely stuck! Not good! I ended up having to shove myself further into the ring to then get out backwards under the water. Lennie found it hilarious, as did the lifeguard. All in all, I've loved Barcelona, I think I like the main citys a lot more than the tiny towns.
So tomorrow we're packing up very early, catching three trains for an eight hour overall journey to Nice. Harry Potter comes out tomorrow in France so my mission will be to track a cinema down that shows it in English. We've got three days there and then we'll start to travel through Italy. So exciting!
