  • Salsa Class

    Travel Journal from Spain Barcelona, Spain | Sun Apr 10, 2011

    On Mondays in February I took a salsa class.  It was by far one of the best decisions I had made.  I got to learn a lot and hopefully I can bring some moves back to the states.  It was so much fun getting to learn and dance for an hour.  We got to switch partners and we moved quickly so we could move as much as possible.  If I …

  • Paella

    Travel Journal from Spain Barcelona, Spain | Thu Apr 07, 2011

    Let's talk about paella. Wow. Willl definitely miss that from Spain. The one we made in the cooking class was really good but I much prefer the seafood paella. I still think the one in Tarragona was the best I've had, but the one we had on Barceloneta was fantastic as well. Although, I will say I wasn't particularly happy about the extra charges for bread and some ridiculous other …

    Travel Journal from Spain Barcelona, Spain | Wed Mar 23, 2011

    Last weekend we were unsurprised to learn that Spain was going to have a festival where they dangerously used fire in celebration.  This time we had to travel down to Valencia to see it, about a 4 hour trip from Barcelona.  We found a cheap and convenient bus to take us there and back, and arrived in the city at about 4pm, only 2 hours after schedule, which isn't too …

  • Costumes, Candy and Craziness. Must Be Carnaval!

    Travel Journal from Spain Barcelona, Spain | Wed Mar 23, 2011

    Barcelona, and Spain in general, is all about the festivals.  If there's something to be celebrated, there's gauranteed to be a festival with a giant parade and some of the weirdest things you wouldn't expect to see on the streets (like children strapped with fireworks).  Carnaval was no different, and we all decided to trek down to Sitges, a smaller town right outside of Barcelona, for the crazy party we …
