Barcelona, Spain

I came back last night from a fun but rainy weekend in Barcelona with my friends Jess and Katie! Katie was here with us last semester but moved to Barcelona for work for her second semester so we took a weekend to visit her 🙂 The weather was pretty lame all weekend and we got soaked for the majority of it, so we didn’t get to see much and I wasn’t too keen on sightseeing, but instead just wanted a relaxing girls’ weekend.

However, we did make our way to a really delicious Indian dinner, plus went to the famous Chocolate and Mammoth Museums. The best part of the city, in my opinion, is the Mercat de la Boquería, which is full of vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, juice, sweets, and all types of fish and meat. I had a couple amazing smoothies and they only cost 1 euro each!

On Saturday night we started the evening at a champagne/meat eating bar that was absolutely packed with tourists spilling drinks all over the place. We barhopped for the remainder of the evening and tried various cocktails and shots. Since we started drinking so early and didn’t eat a proper dinner we had to end it at 1AM, which is a major fail on a night out in Spain. At least we were properly rested for the next day of walking/eating before our flight back to Santiago.
