Spain is simply amazing. Not only is it a cool, laid back city, but I also met some amazing people.
My first morning in the city I did a free tour of all the Gaudi sites in the city.
When I got back to the hostel I met up with a bunch of people that were staying for the same days. A few Aussies, a few South Africans, a Norweigan, and a few North Americans (Us and Can). The hostel made us dinner and drinks everynight, but this night was special because it was HALLOWEEN! We all dressed up in silly witch hats and headed out. The gguy who was working the hostel that night took us all out to a local club that was 18 Euros to get in with a line around the corner, but he took us to the front door and we got in for free! The club had two floors with the bottom hip hop and the top rock. We all finally wandered back to the hostel around 6 in the morning, made some breakfast and went to bed.
But, I didn't get to sleep long. I planned on going to a tour in the morning with one of my hostelmates, so I had to drag myself out of bed to meet her downstairs at 10. We took the old city tour of Barcelona and saw some of the oldest buildings in Spain and learned about the Catalonia history.
Later that day we meet up with the rest of the group and walked down to the beach. We chatted and people watched and lazed about on the sand for hours until it finally got too cold and we headed back to the hostel. Soon after we got back the entore hostel sat down for dinner and moitos and talked and laughed and joked the night away.
Sadly, the next morning I had to catch a train to my next stop, but it was ok because I got to see one of my favorite people, Lynsey, a friend from The Hague.
Next Stop: Avignon and Nice, France
