Barcelona, Spain

I’m never taking a flight with 4 transfers… ever… again.

A small group of us decided to spend a week in Barcelona after one particular savy friend of mine found a ridiculously cheap flight. Barcelona is like all the other European cities; it has great architecture and a very lively nightlife. We were also shocked to find the prices in grocery stores for alcohol, water, and bread were so low. Coming back to the states was almost painful, now everytime I go to the store I feel like I’m being ripped off.

None of us spoke a lot of Spanish or Catalan, but everyone there was so patient and friendly we got along fine with the basics. Our Spanish friend Luis really helped us out the first couple days as well.

Personally, I don’t consider Barcelona a very touristy city. It has the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, and the Park Güell designed by Gaudí but the city is so laid back it’s hard to get caught up in the uber touristy stuff. Barcelona is definitely a city I would love to live in for a month. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like the best way to see this city is to live, work and play in it for a while. I can’t wait to go back one day.
