The weekend before finals, and after our 4 papers were due, I flew to Barcelona to meet up with some of my girlfriends and to see my friends and host family from when I previously studied abroad there. I met up with my two really good friends from Chapman, Elyse and Chelsea. Elyse's older sister, Amanda, and Chelsea's friend, Tracy, who also studied in Florence with Chelsea came too.
We all took the low-cost airline, RyanAir, into Girona and then took a bus into the city of Barcelona. We all arrived within about 20 minutes of each other so it worked out perfectly. The bus was really easy and a gorgeous, green drive. It went by quickly since we were all so excited to be there and had a lot to catch up on. When we arrived, my friend Guti came and picked us up. We stayed in his apartment with him and his sister, Ana. Once we arrived there wasn't much time to kill. Us girls were told to get ready as fast as we could so that we could make it to our 10 pm dinner at a sushi restaurant.
