My wife and I live on Vancouver Island. I'm retired, she's getting there.
I could write a wonderful short story about the 5 days James and Laura stayed at my place in Barcelona. They seem to unite some of the best blessings of existence, and so they seem to bless and love all they meet: the magic concert at the Palau, the houses of Gaudi, Gracia, Mathieu from Paris who took them for a ride around the city, the fantastic food and the incredible desserts! "And the desserts!" Laura would say! They delight in the blessings of life, and you will be enchanted.
If they were a dessert I think they would be a chocolate cake with a colorful fruit salad :)
James was kind, interesting, and considerate--a model guest, he'd be welcome back anytime. Good luck in all future marathons!
James and Laura were lovely guests. We really enjoyed our conversation over breakfast. I would highly recommend them and love to have them return.
