My summer internship in Barcelona

A few weeks after the Erasmus + contract had been signed by my University and me, I landed in one of the most popular summer-vacation-cities in Europe. Barcelona. Four months have never flown by so quickly. I spent my time taking walks by the Mediterranean Sea guessing which languages were spoken by people who were passing by, driving with metro to my favorite locations like the crowded parks in front of the Sagrada Familia, the outdoor library by the Glories Tower and to a small restaurant Montaditos, by the Placa de Catalunya, where me and my Slovenian coworker would occasionally enjoy Sangria. Since I had already known Italian language, I understood Spanish good enough. Me and my landlady had this kind of italian-spanish language exchange with some body mimicry involved to help us understand each other better. Quite a fun experience. I guess I also learned some words of Turkish since I had a roommate and coworkers from Turkey. In this time in Catalonia, as far as the events go, I went to the Summer Festival and Gracia Festival, joined the celebration of the National Day of Catalonia, traveled to Andorra, Montserrat, Tarragona and Tossa de Mar. I couldn’t wish for a better first, long term, experience abroad. Hopefully, the journey over the Slovenian hills has just begun.
