Upon arriving in Barcelona, I soon discovered there was an upcoming Champions League football match between the Glasgow Rangers and Barcelona FC. The city was flooded with loud, chanting Scotsmen. The atmosphere was amazing! Unfortunately though, it seemed a lot of these loud Scotsmen were staying in my hostel.. and chanting until the wee hours of the morning... every night. This was very annoying when I actually wanted to sleep! Oh well, Barcelona is known as a party city, so I guess I was never going to get much sleep anyway!
I spent the next few days seeing the sights around the city, including the beach and Gaudi architecture.
Another great spot in Barcelona was the park, which had some great musicians and jugglers on the weekend. La Ramblas is one of the main streets in Barcelona and it's filled with markets and street performers... another favourite.
I also got the chance to reunite with some friends I'd met first in Germany, and then Venice. We had several nights out on the town, which was great fun! I also made sure to try paella, sangria and see a flamenco show.
