    ... the night away we eventually all got home around 6 in the morning and crashed. The night ended with a kick in the guts for poor Zarah though, while chilling on the beach in the early hours of the morning her entire handbag got nicked right from under her nose! Her bag which contained her wallet with all her money, ID cards and bank cards, as well as her iphone. Needless to say this was not a happy ending.

We stayed in the generator hostel which was in the center of the city, so that was surprising ...

    ... continued to thrill me and exceed my expectations. We walked all around the city stopping at other notable Gaudi buildings such as Casa Mila (La Predrera) and Guell Palace. We strolled along through Port Vell just to see it. We arrived there by way of La Rambla, a touristy street full of overpriced restaurants, fashion boutiques and most of all interesting craft stands, street performers and human statues that come to life when you drop a Euro ...
