World Trip – Spain

Spain was my first stop in Europe, and it was a real change from Asia. Madrid proved a problem for somebody who could not speak Spanish, and I struggled to find my hostel. Then I considered the distances shorter than they really were, and took a bus to Barcelona which took ages. Christmas Day was spent here, to no great fanfare as the culture celebrates the day before, unbeknownst to me at the time. It was one of the few times I felt quite alone during my travels. As everything was closed, I spent my time looking at the Gaudi Park and wandering around the city before flying out on a super-cheap flight to Rome the next night.
