Barcelone… Toujours une fete!

10 Oct

After making our way across the city on the metro, spending fifteen Euro on a two hours bus ride outside of the city, and having a heart attack when we had to make it through security within fifteen minutes, Shayla and I were on our flight to Barcelona, baby!

We decided to do a weekend trip there because two of her best friend, Lizzy and Kate, are studying there and it was Lizzy’s birthday on Wednesday. What a better way to celebrate than with a weekend of visitors? Those two girls did an amazing job showing us a good time in Barcelona, but holy crap, that city does not stop.. Except for siesta… Don’t expect to go to any shops between 2:00 and 4:00 in the afternoon.

During the day, we did many touristy things. Saw all the sites. Went to the Picasso museum. Looked at different Gaudi architecture (amazing)! And then at night, it was time to party!.. All night. None stop. Apparently sleeping was not on the agenda. It was an amazing trip, but it also helped me realize that Paris is the place for me. Once the weekend was over, I was ready to go back. Unfortunately we had a fight for 5:50 in the morning on Sunday, so we had to catch a taxi to the airport around 4:00 in the morning after a night of going out. We were exhausted, and we got pulled off the plane for “security measures” where they places everyone in a singled-out room, put our bags in the middle of the floor, and brought drug dogs in to search them all. After four hours, they didn’t bother to tell us what was going on but they did eventually let us back on the plane. When we were supposed to be back home in Paris (after another hour and a half bus ride back to Paris after the flight) at 9:00 in the morning, we didn’t arrive home until 1:00 in the afternoon. Thanks for sucking, Ryanair! At least you were cheap…

Unfortunately, the weekend was a whirlwind and a recap is the last thing I feel like doing, but you know I’ll leave you with some photos!
