If you were to sum up your Barcelona experience in one to two words, what would you say? My Barcelona Experience is…


Explain why you chose those words.

Barcelona, for me, was all about exploring. 

What was your favorite place to eat in Barcelona? Favorite food?

My favorite food was TAPAS!

If you had one perfect day in Barcelona where would you go, and what would you do?

I’d just walk around Barcelona, grab a cup of coffee, and contemplate my life plan. In the afternoon, I’d walk down Passeig de Gràcia to people watch those who are buying the luxury items, and think about how successful they are and how I can be in the same boat someday. Later that night, I’d walk down to the beach to look at the ocean and simply let time pass.

What is one piece of advice that you have for future students coming to Barcelona?

Do everything, but know your limits!
