Day 3

Parque Atracciones Madrid (again) and then a 4 hour bus ride to Parque Atracciones Zaragoza.

Both parks were quite hospitable and had a great sense of charm.

I know, who cares what I write.

Enjoy the pictures.

You could always try traditional English to convey your message, as opposed to a bunch of fragments, smilies, and sound effects.

Sorry. :oops:

I didn't mean it as a slam. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew that I'd just like to see Robb with a beard, cause I think he'd look good with it. Everyone uses emoticons and expressions differently, so it's easy to be misunderstood.

Please, no hard feelings.

Day 4

Due to the restrictions placed on the bus driver, we got to sleep in a bit today as 10:30am was our scheduled departure time. We made the most of it.

There are pics of the hotel, the sights along the 3.5 hour drive, our arrival at the El Paso hotel and my first few hours at Port Aventura.

We would be at this hotel for parts of 4 days and 3 nights.

There are a lot of pics along the drive and it may be boring to you, but, it is MY trip report! :P

On to the pics...
