On our way from France, I believe we took a train to Barcelona. I remember us getting in at like 5 or 6 in the morning, and I remember seeing these people stumbling off of the train loud and drunk because apparently people party late there. We were staying in another hostel and this time it was with multiple girls. They were a little loud, but not too horrible. ALBERG DE JOVENTUT IDEAL YOUTH HOSTEL, was the name of the hostel. The bathrooms and showers were outside of the rooms. The people were mostly friendly in Spain.

I remember us eating at a McDonald’s one night of all places. We walked to the beach and along the way we saw people dressed up as statues, it was pretty cool. The beach we swam in was the Balearic Sea which is a part of the Mediterranean Sea, which I thought was pretty cool that I swam in! This beach was a topless beach, but there really were not that many topless people. The ones I did see were older people…I also remember that I had to buy a new bathing suit when I was there. I still have that bathing suit, it’s like a souvenir, and I love it. 


This is me posing with a statue/piece of art wearing my souvenir bathing suit. 

At this point I felt like my feet were dead, so walking in the sand my feet felt like I was walking on a cloud. So Katie told me about this place where everyone gets these particular pair of shoes, so we were on the hunt for them for a while and I will tell you my feet did feel a little better wearing them, but not much, I had to walk barefoot a lot. The store that we bought them from was called LA MANUAL ALPARGATERA, I have to admit Katie’s were cuter she got the wedges, but I love mine and I still wear them to this day.


We also ate at a place called LA LUNA, I can’t remember actually eating there, but I had my first chocolate martini and it was the worst thing I ever drank. It took us forever to find this place. We actually bumped into a group of guys, one was from New York, one was Russian, and maybe the other guy was from Spain. They all spoke English. I sort of freaked out when they first started talking to us because no one really made an effort to talk to us except the people at the hostels. They were the ones that pointed in the directions of the restaurant.

We walked outside of the Museu Nacional D’Art de Catalunya (MCAC), We also took a walk around the Font Magica, this is a beautiful fountain that was built in 1929.

I wish there were more things that I remembered from this trip. When Katie reads this maybe she will have more to add in, but I think at this point my feet were hurting so bad I could barely pay attention to what I was looking at.

I hope these places that I have mentioned can give you some ideas of things to do in Spain. Go ahead and give me suggestions on places to visit in Spain if you have ever been. I am sure I will be going back in the future.
