 I am back from Costa Brava with tons of memories that I will take with me for the rest of my life. 

Well hello everyone!

I am back from Costa Brava with tons of memories that I will take with me for the rest of my life. This was by far one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was most definitely a long and exhausting weekend, but very much worth it. We were packed with things to do and see. The adventure started on Friday afternoon and didn't end until we arrived back in Barcelona tonight around 8 o'clock. The first stop on our excursion was the Dali Museum, which was unlike anything I've ever seen. Dali designed the whole museum, and it is very extravagant. The entire museum was very interesting, but one of my favorites was a painting of a woman staring off into the distance. However, when you look at it through a camera, you will see an image of Abraham Lincoln. My mind was absolutely blown by this and everything else about the museum for that matter. After seeing Dali's amazing creation, we headed to Besalú, a very beautiful little town. The set up of the town is something you would never find in the United States, and is much older than anything you would find there as well. The town still has a look of a medieval castle. We got to explore the town for about an hour and then head to Palamós, where we would be staying for the weekend. When we arrived at the hotel, which was a very nice hotel, we were treated with an amazing three-course meal. Then, it was time for bed. Saturday had a lot to offer as well. We started with a delicious breakfast at the hotel, and then took a long walk by the beach and went to see Dali's house as well as some very old ruins that dated back before the Roman rule. After the guided walk, we had free time at the beach. The water was beautiful and I definitely took advantage. We had some free time before going to a cooking workshop where we got to see a little into the life of a fisherman and were able to try some interesting dishes including octopus. After the cooking workshop, we went to see the Fishing Museum in Palamós. It was interesting to see some of the tools that the fisherman used way back in the day. 

After a long day, we went and explored the town and looked at some of the shops. A lot of people from the group met up to go out for a little dancing and we all had a really good time. It was nice to finally get to hang out with everyone from the group at once. Today we ended our adventures, but not before seeing some more amazing things. The first stop today was in Girona, we were able to take a guided tour of the town and see the Cathedral. It was enormous and so extravagant; we were even able to go inside. We had an amazing lunch in Girona after we finished the tour. After lunch, we got back on the bus and headed to see Montserrat. Montserrat was absolutely gorgeous. We had an hour of free time to walk around and see the mountain. You could spend a whole day exploring and being amazed by the beauty of it. I also saw windmills when we were driving up the mountain, which I was actually really surprised to see! This weekend was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. I felt very lucky today with everything I got to do and see. Now, it's on to the last full week of the first session’s classes, which means lots of studying for me! I hope you all have a great night, and Happy Father's Day! A shout out to my dad, love you dad!
