Barcelona continues to exceed my expectations. What a city!I have been living here for 6 months now and I’ve only seen a smidgen of what Barcelona has to offer. The city really has a personality like no other. I find it hard to fault, a part from the weather which is fairly cold at times. Although considering the weather in England is far colder, I cannot complain too much.
The sunset from our flat.I also very fortunately had the opportunity to explore more of Catalonia, going to a beautiful small town called Callela de la Palafrugell, in the Costa Brava region just north of Barcelona. It was stunning. We were 8 guys in total and went away for a boys weekend. The 3 days consisted of beer, beach and poker. It was a nice respite from a class full of girls (which can be difficult at times).
My awaited Christmas present was here – tickets to see Barcelona vs Villarreal. I took my Argentinean friend Franco (a big Messi supporter of course) and we had the best time. The game couldn’t have been more exciting and our seats were in the best position. 3-2 win for Barcelona!
A very fun game of sunday Basketball in the Raval area with my German friends.
