Day 1- Last night Spain won the Euro Cup and the entire of Barcelona headed to the streets to let off fireworks, fire crackers, sing and dance in the streets until 6 in the morning. Was insane, crazy and very funny.... good value.
the temperature is 40 degrees and even hotter in Madrid where i will be in 8 days!!
Day 2- Decided to get lost in Barcelona by myself as then best way to orientate myself with the city. After actually getting lost and spending 6 hours in the city, i managed to return to the hostel with a general idea of how the city is planned out. Every building has amazing architecture, and there are hundread of cathedrals i have already visited. There are 11,000 taxis in the city, and u can get them anywhere!! Also they have the best recylcing system with HUGE bins on every corner for plastic, glass and paper recylcing. The traffic system is very interesting.... A 6 intersection way invovles everyone accelerating flat out, beeping their horns and hoping that no-one gets hit.. traffic signals dont mean a lot but it is all good. There is the best shopping in the world in barcelona... it is amazing. already bought 2 pairs of shoes, dont know if they will fit in my bag but i will make them fit!!! Every shop shuts between 2-430 for siesta but will reopen and stay open until 10pm... off to have my siesta now then resume shopping
Day 3 -
Made my way to Barcelona´s main train station to buy my tickets to San Sebastian. Unfortunately, all the tickets had sold out so i booked on the ´sleeping´train 12 hours later. I spent an exciting 11 hours at the train station reading free spanish newspapers and talking to many Australians & Kiwis passing through. On the sleeping train, our there was 6 beds squeezed into 1 square metre of space. Awesome fun though.. arrived at San Sebastian at 8am...
