🇪🇸T’s Weekend in Spain & Christmas Eve in Venice🎄
What were you grateful for this week? Barcelona.
What was the most difficult or challenging part of this week? Language barrier in Italy.
Tell us about a "wow" moment you had this week. Made Mexican food for [my host mom] and [my host family’s daughter].
Tell us about your week! This week I went to Barcelona. Ever since Spanish class in high school, and learning all about Spain and specifically Barcelona, I have always wanted to go. La Sagrada Familia has always been high up there on my bucket list and I’m so lucky to have actually been able to see it. Maybe one day I can go back and actually see it finished in 10 years.
Seeing the works of Gaudí was such an experience to say the least but I loved it all. Not only that but I also got to see a Flamenco dance. A traditional one! The emotion and passion the dancer put into her work was incredible. And the music reminded of something from Coco lol. But again, all amazing.
Then I spent Monday which was Christmas Eve in Venice! It wasn’t my first time there and unfortunately probably my only time there since I have a limited time here in Italy. But it was so gorgeous there. Sadly it was a little bug foggy so I didn’t get the full experience but it was still Venice. No gondolas this time because I don’t have $80 to spare haha. But the gondolas and the canals were gorgeous and everything I dreamed of. It was cut short because I realized I was running late for my train to Udine, so I had to run through the streets to make it to the station. But it was all still pretty on the way out haha!
