    Heat stroke or hangover?

    July 8, 2016 in Spain

    We woke up for check out & obviously I left my packing for the morning. When I woke up, I was instantly going to pass out. As if the room wasnt small and hot enough, we had to add hangover to the mix. Trying to pack was the worst things in the world. I couldnt forcus for more than 30 seconds. It took me probably an hour to pack my stuff & thats if I didnt leave anything behind.

    As soon as we were done packing, we went outside to sit in the shade to figure out what we were going to do with our bags until our bus ride later that night. We decided to bring them straight over to the bus stations via metro. Let me tell you... What a horrible effing decison. We 300% almost passed out in the metro because of the heat. All I wanted was water. According to Breanna, I was looking green.

    After leaving our bags, we took a bus to the Camp Nou stadium to do the tour. It was such an awesome feeling to have my feet basically on the feild of the biggest stadium in europe. I wish it could have been game night to experience what it feels like to have that place packed with die hard fans. We got to see the locker rooms, press conference rooms, VIP lounges, commentary booths, & so much more. It made me miss my team back home (who currently just took first place in our division 🎉).

    We did the museum part, where we got to see some unique things from Messi's career & a bunch of trophys theyve won over the years.

    As Canadians, it is our duty to find any hockey rink if were near by. We found one in spain..... What what. 🙌🏼
    It also felt so good because my body was so over heated from being in the sun all day yesterday& today. The cold air probably put my body into shock & I actually ended up walking to the garbage & puked my guts out... Dont worry, it was super low key thanks to my body guards. I felt better but still had a massive head ache & would get increasingly worse as soon as sun would hit my body. Could have been hangover, heat stoke or dehydration.. Who knows.

    We went back to the beach to do some last minute shopping along the board walk & just sat & chilled for a little bit enjoying our last few moments in Barcelona.

    We took the bus over to the bus station where we got our bus no problem. We get on, take our seats & then I realize I needed to pee sooo I get up to go to the bathroom & the bus driver comes over, starts yelling at me in spanish & slams the door in my face. I just remembering looking up at Shaunessa & going ... What? Some nice girl translated & said I couldnt go to the bathroom while the bus was stop,.. Wtf right?

    Anyways 7 hours later... We arrive in Mardid 😎

    A Busy Evening - Part 3

    January 4 in Spain

    Dinner was at a nearby Korean-owned restaurant, followed by more walking. We went through trendy Barri Gothic where the ancient Romans first built the city, Christians built the Barcelona Cathedral, and where Jews gathered. Now it’s narrow, winding roads and courtyards are full of shops, restaurants and bars, still all lit up for Christmas. We wound our way to busy La Rambla. The tourist office told me that locals no longer go there and the food is over-priced and not very good. But I wanted to see where 14 people lost their lives and more than a 100 injured at the hand of an Isis terrorist, and said a quiet prayer in their memory.

    On arrival at the airport I had bought a T10 card that allowed 10 public transit rides that you can share for about $15. Best deal in town! So it was back on the Metro for our final ride home at 11 pm.....a very long but wonderful last day in Barcelona.
