Abroad: A first reunion in Barcelona

When I knew I’m going to do my internship in Barcelona, ​​Emily promised to visit me there. And so she did for a weekend in August. On Friday, I only had to work until the early afternoon and could even pick Emily up at the airport. From there, we first went to my apartment before going out for dinner at Flax & Kale, by now my favorite restaurant in Barcelona. And before heading home again, we grabbed some ice cream and took a late-night walk through the city.

The following day, we first met Vicki and Fabsi for breakfast at The Juice House and visited Park Güell afterwards. There, we enjoyed the splendid views of Barcelona and strolled through the park, while spending the rest of the afternoon shopping at Passeig de Gràcia. After having tapas for dinner, we got ready for Babsi’s birthday party. We all met at her place first for some pre-drinks and later headed to the street festival in Gracia until 4 am. 

Since Sunday was already the last day I could spend with Emily, we got up earlier to first have breakfast at Flax & Kale and then stroll along Las Rambla the harbor and further to Barceloneta beach. Later, we did a sightseeing tour by foot and passed by Parc de la Ciutadella, and after a short stroll through the park, Arc de Triompf and strolled through El Born, the culture and arts area of Barcelona. In the late afternoon, we met Vicki to visit Sagrada Família, which probably is one of the most impressive buildings I’ve ever seen and, thus, definitely a must-see in Barcelona. As it was Emily’s last evening in Barcelona, we wanted to do something funny and went to Ice Barcelona, where everything – including the glasses – was made of ice. So, it was a fun experience and worth a visit, especially when it’s 30 °C outside and you’re looking for a place to cool off. And then, we ended our last evening with some sangria at Port Olímpic.
