Barcelona here i come!!!!

Andy and I are booked to go to beautiful Barcelona in 4 months in order to follow the Vuelta a Espana. He is a huge cycling fan and said that Basque region is a totally cycling crazy part of the country. Alberto Contaor comes from there and he was a Tour de France winner and he won the Giro d’Italia too. Maybe he won the Vuelta. I can’t remember. I don’t really care, actually.
I am excited to be heading over to Spain. I love Europe. I love the food, the way people party. I don’t know, they seem more laid back in Europe. And the warm weather is always nice. It’s supposed to be beautiful in Barcelona in the summer. If it’s anything like Italy, I’m sure I’ll love it.
I don’t want to do the tour of churches. Ugh! If you’ve seen one church in Europe, you’ve pretty much seen them all. I’m so done with that. I want to see other things. I want to take some awesome pics of Barcelona and the rest of Spain. I’m not so thrilled about camping all around Spain following some cycling race but Andy says it will be amazing. Apparently, one of his coworkers went to Spain and followed the Tour. He said it was a party every day for a few weeks. We’re going to land in Barcelona and then Andy is going to figure out how we’re going to follow the Tour. I don’t even know where it starts or how long it will last.
We’re booked for 3 weeks in Spain. I do want to check out the Barrio Gotico section of Barcelona. My friend Cella, was telling me that it is an old medieval part of Barcelona and is just so cool to be in. In Canada, our oldest buildings are only a couple hundred years old, so this will be impressive. I can’t wait to see it. We are also going to check out some of the night clubs in Barcelona. I’m sure they’re sick. I can’t wait to see how they party there.
Andy got 3 weeks off work. Actually he is taking 2 weeks holidays and they are giving him 1 week unpaid leave. What a cool company to work for. I’m actually just working right now bartending. Nice thing is that we can pick up easy work doing this and serving tables pretty much anywhere in the world. Not sure how we’re going to make coin while we’re in Spain but we’ll figure it out. I’m sure we’ll be a bit of a novelty being an Aussie and a Canuk and all. We’ll see. I’ve always done really well with finding places to stay for cheap and finding little gigs to give me some cash while traveling. We’ll see how Andy does with it. People like him so I’m sure we’ll do fine.
Can’t wait to leave on this trip. Andy and I have never travelled before so I’m hoping he’s good to travel with. I’ll keep you posted!
