Only a little over 2 weeks into our stay here in London, my roommates and I decided to take our first international trip to Spain! Barcelona had amazing weather for our site seeing filled weekend! We were able to see everything we wanted to see within the two full days we had there. We went on a walking tour which told us about the history of Barcelona and all of the old buildings. We also did a tapas tour which was our favorite! Tapas are a Spanish dish that are very small and usually come with a drink. It is more of a social event before supper time. We also got to see the famous church, Sagrada Família. All of our site seeing was beautiful and we were not ready to leave the beautiful city. But as my title states “away from home,” we have now become used to calling London “home.” We missed everyone that lives with us in London and even just the familiar accent of the Londoners. It felt great to be back. Also, today was my first class field trip! We went to one of Charles Dicken’s houses that he had lived in in London. It was very interesting and nice to see something we wouldn’t normally see. Here are some pictures of Barcelona!
