My first day in Barcelona

Have you ever visited Barcelona?

2 years ago, I visited the city with a friend of mine. However, it was just a day trip, so we weren’t really able to see the city like we would’ve wanted. Currently, my best friend Salma is doing her internship in Barcelona, and since I had to be in Lloret de Mar in a week anyways, I thought, why not visit her?

On Tuesday I planned my flight to Barcelona from Schiphol, at around 9.30 pm. I already knew this was a late flight, but I had to go to uni earlier that day. Besides, I wanted to get there ASAP, since the weather is way better there than in The Netherlands. I got out of class earlier than expected and went to the airport. At around 6, I got at the airport and went to the duty free part of Schiphol. Once there, I was really bored so I bought a book and read basically the entire time at the airport (I wanted to safe my battery to watch Riverdale on the plane). At the moment I wanted to go to the gate, it was still early but still, I saw that my flight had a delay of an hour. It basically pissed me off a lot, because I had to take the metro to my friends place, and since it was delayed I couldn’t be there on time. Anyway, I still went to the gate and there were tons of people already, waiting on the plane to departure. After like 5 minutes there was this woman who said the flight was delayed till 11.00 pm. I was soooo mad, but obviously there was nothing that you could do about it. Luckily, there was this girl who would be picked up by her cousin and they lived in a village near the city. She offered me that they would bring me home, which was soooo nice of them!! Finally, when i got at my friends place, it was about 2.30 am. I was so tired of the entire day that we went straight to bed.

The next day we had planned to visit the Arc de Triompf, which was closeby. The building was so beautiful and there were a lot of tourists around. We also visited Parc de la Ciutadella which was close to the Arc. The parc was lovely, with a beautiful building and a fountain. Beside that, we went to the city, because I wanted to find a white bralette, like a beautiful one. It was so hard to find, I mean that had those odd colors, but didn’t have white. How could you not sell a white bralette??? Still, I haven’t find the right one.. Anyway, we visited a market in the city, where I bought my first dragon fruit ever. To be honest, I think it tastes like kiwi. Later on, we visited the harbor, (El Gòtic). Where we went shopping more on and after that we left to the house and went out clubbing with my friends roomies and friends.

Since the weather in Barcelona was really good, about 20 degrees, I just wore a T-shirt from Levi’s. With that, I wore my new hat which I bought 2 days before my travel, in a local fashion store in my hometown. The clutch is from mango, and the skirt is from H&M. I’ve had both of them for ages, but I still love them. The shoes I wore are from Puma. Of course, I didn’t wear these clothes to the club at night.
