J-term Trip 2018

Day 7 and Day 8: Barcelona and Athens

Day 7: In the morning, we got up and took a bus to Parc Guell which was designed by Gaudi. It was far from our hotel, so we were thankful for the bus! We had our Barcelona guide with us, who walked us through the park and also allowed for a few minutes for free exploration. We drove by the site of the Olympics back in 1992 as well. After the park, we went to a house that was designed by Gaudi. The house was so cool! While going through the tour, we were given a headset and a device similar to an iphone. While walking through the house, there was audio giving history of the room. You could also point your devices camera at the room and be able to see what the house looked like before it was a museum! After that, people were on their own to get lunch before a two hour class session. After class, people went to get a quick dinner before heading to the FC Barcelona game! The game was awesome, there were so many fans! Messi scored two goals fairly quickly, and soon enough it was 4-0 at half. Some of the group went back to the hotel at half time, others stayed till the end. The final score was 5-0. It was such a cool experience!

Day 8 Athens: We woke up bright and early and headed to the airport to go to Athens. Once in Athens, we took a panoramic bus tour to get a feel for the city and look at a few sites. After, we checked into the hotel, got organized, and headed to a group dinner. After dinner, everyone was exhausted and headed to bed to rest up for a fun day exploring Athens!
