Back to Barca

A quick note scribbled in the airport, letting you know I’m about to board another one of those flying tubes that’s carrying me back to Barcelona, Spain where I’ll be among the throng reporting on the first stop of Season 13 of the European Poker Tour.

This will be my third time in Barcelona. Had the great chance to bring Vera along on this trip a few years back (three years ago, I believe), which made for a fun vacation for her. Going it alone this time, as she’s hanging back to help manage the farm while I’m away.

Am curious to see how much of the city I recognize this time around. That’s one benefit of going back to these places multiple times -- they start to become familiar and thus distinct from the other stops. And, of course, sticking relatively close to the casino makes certain places (especially restaurants) even more memorable as we return to them time and again.

I’m also intrigued to see the EPT get cranked up once again, as it always seems to be growing and evolving in interesting ways.

I’ll give a shout once I get over to the other side of the Atlantic. Hablamos mañana.
