It was a very long walk up to our destination. Mostly on a dusty trail surrounded by forest, it was the closest to nature that one can get to in Barcelona, I believe. We were constantly being passed by joggers and cyclists, who made us all feel very much out of shape.
It is a peaceful thing to visit a Cathedral every couple of weeks. The beautiful structures and quiet atmosphere give me a chance to think in ways I don't normally take the time to. Much like staring up in a forest, the canopy of a church is a very positive and uplifting experience.
