After visiting Ireland back in September, I’ve become hooked on foreign travel. I’ve been dying to take another trip ever since I got back, and have been playing around with a lot of ideas of where to go. Well, one of the things my list of goals for 2007 is to go somewhere in Europe, so I’m thinking Barcelona will be next on the list. It would be a short trip – just a long weekend, but I think that would be enough. I’ve always wanted to visit Spain, and Barcelona attracts me because of it’s proximity to the Medditeranean, it’s culture, and it’s unique architecture, particularly Antoni Gaudi‘s La Sagrada Familia, the Casa Batllo,and the Casa Mila. Just an idea at this point, but I’d really like to go. I’m hoping to book the trip soon.
Now I have some motivation to do well in my Spanish class. Has anybody ever been to Spain? Barcelona? I’m looking for travel tips and suggestions on what to do if I go out there.
London would be my second choice, but I think it’s a little to expensive to travel there right now.
