I could not sleep. I was staring out in the dark, waiting for the alarm clock to go off. It was sunday morning and my last day in Barcelona. I was laying in bed thinking about how you start a new adventure, and how they all unfortunately come to an end. I started my adventure in Barcelona 27 of February, and today 26 of June, this adventure has come to the end.
I wanted to go to Barcelona to learn spanish, meet new people, learn about culture, explore the city and overall have a great experience that would make me grow as a person. I left the country hoping for a valuable experience that I would never forget. When you start a new adventure, you never know whats coming. I don’t know about you, but for me some of the joy in the adventure, is not knowing what will happen. When you wake up, you can ask yourself “What could possibly happen today?”.
During my time here in Barcelona I have met some wonderful people, I have seen things I thought was illegal, I have learned some more spanish, I was offered “space Cockies”, I saw the police shoot air bullets and I have done things I never thought I would do. The last 4 months that I have spent here has been a great adventure and I am thankful for all the things that has made me grow. I have to admit that I fell in love with Barcelona, the city itself is wonderful. Coming from a small farm going to the big city, I fell in love with the freedom and the liberty of being able to “go wherever, when ever”.
Meeting new people and making new friends is always a great adventure, the only problem is when you are going back home. I was so lucky to meet some truly wonderful people during my stay in Barcelona. I am so thankful for the people who entered my life, but it also makes the end more difficult. It’s hard to leave someone not knowing when you will se them again, especially if you are good friends. people always complain about Facebook but one thing is sure! Thanks to Facebook it’s so much easier to keep contact with new friends, and if you miss them you can just look at their pictures. You know who you are, and I just wanted you to know that because of you guys, my last few months in Barcelona became a wonderful experience that I will never forget! And…………………………………..Just so you know, don’t worry, I will come back and visit!! Miss you guys allready……………….
Now I am back in Norway, thinking about what I learned and how fast 4 months go by! It’s still a little wired to think that I have lived 4 months in Barcelona, so I guess I just need to give it some time. I really liked Barcelona so there is a big change I will come back to study or to work. “Time Will show”
Now I have to plan a new Adventure! If you have any good ideas, let me know 🙂
