Day 7 – It’s a small world after all
It is wonderful to be able to see different parts of the world thanks to Internet, planes and all the other modes of transportation. Sometimes, I am still in disbelief that I am traveling in Spain. It is too beautiful to be true. We took a second walking tour early in the day but spent most sunlight in park Guell. Kf and I prepare some lunch before venturing up hill. With the plan to enter one of Gaudi’s work in the park for a picnic, we actually ended up on top of some rocky hill. The view was captivating and too magnificent for us to move anywhere else. I could see the entire city and ocean while munching away my packed cheese sandwich and crisps. We chilled there, made a friend and chatted till sunset. The evening sunlight brought out different colors of the city making it hard for me to not fall in love.
At night, I had made some plans to meet an old friend from California. She happened to be home this Christmas and we took the opportunity to meet for more tapas and sangria. It has been three years since I last saw her. I have never imagined that we would meet again and definitely not in Barcelona. Funny that I am repeatedly reminded of how small this world is and how wonderful traveling is.
