Jess05’s Travel Diary

Friday, 22 Aug 2008

Location: Barcelona, Spain

MapWow, yesterday, what a day!!!
We took a recommendation from an NZ couple we met from Wanaka (Bern and Craig - he apparently knows you from school or something - small world names Callum???) to go to this small town called Tarragona about an hour out of Barcelona by Train. Was amazing, beautiful beach with small restaurants, and less touristy. We had a table in the sun and sat for hours drinking Sangria, and shared a mass paella mmm.
We sat on the beach for a couple of hours rating all of the bare naked breasts around us. Girls of about 14 with tops off, I found it a bit confronting but kept mine on nonetheless.

We made it back to our hostel around 7, with just enough time to get changed and ready for our flamenco tour. About 40 people from the group of hostels met at this tapas bar. Had sangria and mini baguettes before our free shots and flamenco tour. Messy night (but alas I'm making progess on my wall extension) and stumbled in around 6 this morning with some other girls I'd met at our hostel.

Today we're all feeling a bit worse for wear, but still in the mood for more sight seeing, heading to the Joan Miro museum, as we decided the hour trek to get to the Salvador Dali one, was a bit of a stretch for us all today.

Catching up with Jana and her friend Kerrie for a drinks and another outing tonight if we can all back it up... See how we go!
