Barcelona Class Trip (Part 1: Arrival)


Around this time last year, I spent a couple of days visiting Paris, France with Nell, Fathin & Nabihah. This year, I joined a class trip to Barcelona, Spain. At least 70 of my classmates went to this trip, and out of that number, only five were Malaysians, including myself :p Our class reps planned this trip months and months ago and the destination was kept a secret. Despite that, my friends and I had a strong feeling that we might be going to Spain (and we were right!). 

Altogether, we spent five days in Barcelona. As everything was already planned out, we realised that we didn't get to visit the other cities in Spain. Nonetheless, I personally think that this Barcelona trip was worthy considering the fact that we did get the chance to visit quite a number of beautiful and historical places around the city. 

The weather was expected to be around 12-16 degrees Celcius, but it was actually pretty warm and "rain-less" (Very unlike Ireland :p). It did get a little cold at nighttime though. One of my classmates told us that it was 30 degrees Celsius during one of the days! That's so Malaysia, alright :p I sure was glad I didn't bring along thick clothes :)

Okay, I won't being writing much later on (even in my next posts). I'll just put in some captions where necessary :)

My four amazing Barca travel buddies :)

Our dorm in Hostel Lennin :) There were four beds which was just perfect for all four of us girls. 
We even had an awesome en-suite toilet with an amazing shower!

My bed. We shifted this bed closer to the others so that I won't sleep so secluded lol.

How it looked like near our hostel.

I don't remember the name of this building, but the architecture is just so cute :)

Waiting for our dinner in a Chinese restaurant called Tai Wan.
Little did we know that it was going to be our favourite dining place :)
