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

eye opening

Explain why you chose those words.

I was able to view a whole other culture that really gave me an eye on how other countries view things and made me a lot more aware of my surroundings and people in them.

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

My favorite place to eat in barcelona was a cafè called entredogs. They had great cocktails and all of the food tasted good with reasonable prices. The entre that I liked the best was the nachos and veggie wrap!

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

I would have breakfast at a cafè followed by a day trip to tarragona to lounge on the beautiful beach. After having lunch at a local restaurant I would walk and look around the beautiful area before heading back to the city. For dinner having paella or patatas with some cocktails like sangria is a classic start to your night!

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

Have an open mind and don’t stick to one set plan, you will want to do a lot of things but if you can find others to explore with and do other things you will have an even greater time.
