Barcelona Day 59.

Tired doesn’t even properly describe how I feel. From doing an extreme hike to getting very little sleep after, my body just needs some time to do nothing. It was an early morning for me as my program took us out for an excursion to Girona. As much as I wanted to stay in the warm comfort of my bed, I knew this was my one and only opportunity to visit this city. Since it’s not very far away from Barcelona you would expect it to be pretty similar, but it was a pleasant surprise to see that it was definitely not the same. Girona had a nice small river running through it with the color changing autumn trees everywhere in the city. We learned that like many other European cities, Girona was once closed in by walls; walls which you can follow along on a mile long walk way. While in Girona we also had the opportunity to visit the Salvador Dali museum. I’ll say it once, and I’ll say it again, but I don’t understand art. I never have and never will. What some consider amazing art, I consider creepy or strange. No matter how unusual it was, the museum was still pretty interesting, and at least I can say I’ve been. The ride back to Barcelona was lovely because there was plenty of free space on the bus for me to take up a whole row, spread out, and have a nice, long nap. Back in Barcelona, my roommate and I went out to dinner with a friend from church. She told us stories of when she studied abroad and an array of different travel experiences she had as well. By the end of the night I was so incredibly jealous and inspired from hearing all the cool things she had done. Lately I’ve been really bummed that I wasn’t able to go and visit more cities in Europe, but I know this isn’t the end for me. Studying in Spain is just the start of my lifetime travel journey. I’ve still got to make a wish at the Trevi Fountain or ride elephants in Thailand and maybe even freeze in the cold while looking up at the northern lights. No matter what I end up doing, I’ve got ten years to fill up all the pages on my passport. So this ones for adventure and seeing the world! There’s still so much to see and too little time. Adios!
