Well, my entire Barcelona trip is over… In the last weeks I never had time to post due to the amount of activities we had, but I’m here to cover it all up and show you what we did.
During the second week was when I started to make my close friends. It was good because I spent the last half of my time in Barcelona with them, and I still talk to them today!
So also in that same week we took a trip to Girona, a beautiful city that I also got to fangirl over because that’s where they filmed a part of the one and only show *drum roll* “GAME OF THRONES!”
The view was gorgeous:
After that trip, we were taken to the “magical” fountain of Montjuïc, where the fountain lights up at night and there’s beautiful music. It is also where Freddie Mercury sang when the Olympics took place in Barcelona:
I think my excitement is quite visible in this picture:
Next up were the towers of Castellers, an annual Spanish tradition that is better known as the “human towers.” Honestly I don’t think you can watch this happen without having your heart beat out loud. Families gather together and literally climb on top of each other to the point where you can see them shake:
And to end the trip… *drum roll again* THE SAGRADA FAMILIA!
I came previously to the Sagrada a solid eight years ago, when they told me it would all be finished in a long 80 years. But during this trip the guide told me that they only needed ten and it would be over. Given what they still need to completely ten doesn’t seem like much, I can tell you that.
Fast forward to the last night, and tears were shed because of the goodbyes. No one slept that night; everyone stayed up, saying goodbye to one another before their flights left. My eyes became so red and puffy at the end of the day they hurt.
I will miss the experience and everyone I met here. It was amazing and a great opportunity.
Until next time, Barça!
