Every tourist spot in Barcelona in 7 days

Hola again! It feels like I’ve been in Spain forever and ever and ever, but as it turns out, I’ve only been here 10 days. I sort of don’t want to leave ever! (Sorry people from CMU and fam that are reading this)

This week I’ve started classes, although none on Fri-yay. I’ve been lucky enough to go to the major spots in Barcelona, like the Sagrada Familia, the Barcelona Cathedral, and Las Ramblas. The Sagrada Familia is like nothing I have ever seen before in my life. When I first saw it my jaw literally dropped!!

My host family has been amazing! They are a mom and a dad and three daughters, ages 8, 9, and 13, and could not be nicer or more welcoming.

HOLA BARCELONA

Hola! Welcome to my blog. I am writing to you from Barcelona, Spain, where I will be studying abroad this semester. I arrived last Wednesday, but unfortunately have not been able to update my blog because I was recovering from a severe case of jetlag!!! (I still am, lol). I am taking classes at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, and my program is CIEE. There are about 300 other students from America in my program, so if I ever want to talk about how much I miss Chipotle, it will be ok. I am living in a homestay with a family that has three daughters whose ages are 8, 9, and 13, so they still think that I am cool and help me translate words when I have trouble. I cannot wait to write more about my time in Spain!!!! Hasta luego.

p.s. Here are some pictures from when I went to El Bunker del Carmel, where you can see all of Barcelona!
