Barcelona Trip 2016


The Barcelona trip was one of the most amazing experiences. We visited some remarkable places, learnt about Spanish culture and also had so much fun!

On the first day we landed around 10 am and got on a coach that took us to our lovely hostel. The journey was beautiful as we passed through the pretty city, looking out of the coach window to see the remarkable buildings. When we arrived at the hostel we dropped our bags off and headed out on a 2 hour guided-walking tour around Barcelona. To get there we went on the metro. The city was so fascinating and we were allowed to go to the Spanish market that was full of bright colours and delicious smells. Later we visited the Picasso museum; the art work was unbelievable. To finish the first day we headed back to our hostel where we ate some tasty food.Photo1

The second day, we got on a bus to Parc Güell. The mosaic sculptures, buildings and seating areas were bright and colourful. The views looked gorgeous in the hot Spanish sun and we explored the park for the majority of the day. Later on we got dressed up and went to the Hard Rock Café where the food was so delicious.

The building literally made your jaw drop! For tea we had a paella-making workshop at the hostel where we tried different tapas and made paella. We finished the day off with a bit of karaoke.

To top that off we spent the afternoon on the beach, sunbathing, playing Frisbee and chilling with our friends. Later on we sadly made our way to the airport for the flight home. We landed back home at about midnight and drove through a blizzard!

The whole trip was absolutely fantastic and unforgettable!

A massive thank you to Miss Crews, Mr Butler and Miss Cockin for making it all happen.
