Hellllo Barca! Its hard to believe that I only got to Spain fri morning because I feel like I’ve done so much already! Barcelona has been a whirlwind so far. I got in yesterday evening from Madrid, and was a little nervous about staying in a room with 7 other strangers. Then I realized I was the only female in the room and I really didn’t know what I was in for! But honestly, it’s been a great experience so far. Our hostel is amazing – soo so impressed with it. The Aussies in my room are all a ton of fun, and some of us hit the town together. 12 of us wandered around the city until we found a fun club and danced until dawn. I was pretty impressed with how much we all watched out for each other, even though we had just met. So far everyone I’ve met has been so friendly and warm, hoping that this keeps up for the whole month!
This morning I rolled out of bed at 1pm (hey, I was still one of the early risers in my room!) and powered through my self induced headache by what I thought would be a low key day at Park Guell. Totally forgot that the park is on the top of a massive hill and you have to constantly hike up and down stairs to get around. 3 hours later my legs were shaking. But it was pretty great being able to wander around looking for photo opps. Similar to what Lex, Es and I do in NYC with our Canons except this time I had a whole new place to explore! Will definitely be having more days like this. Now, I’m taking a break with some tapas before heading back to the hostel. I think I might take the night off today and chill at the hostel instead, but that’s what I said last night and look how that turned out.
Aussie roomie to me: You don’t dance so bad for an American.
