[FlashBack] Youna in Galicia

Little Youna

In August 2005, I have the chance to stay in Calp in a workcamp. There a lot of people started the legend of the "Calpe Diem".

This september, 4 years later, some of the members of that spirit met again. The place chosen was Galicia (Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña). The excuse: Youna, a French friend decided to visit Spain. The route:

Friday
: Arrive in Santiago de Compostela. Talk a long time and had party using special flyers (Paris-Dakar?).

Saturday: Visit Santiago when the weather allowed us. Buy a cheese and be ripped off by an old farmer woman. Go to A Coruña (fast train!). Have party drinking using a Porron and eating peanuts.

Sunday
: sleep ... and visit A Coruña , specially the Tower of Hercules (so big!).


Willy, Chiño and Youna (somewhere in Santiago de Compostela)

Should be "We speak in English"?

[FlashBack] Barcelona long weekend

As you know, I was in Barcelona due to Manu and Beas's wedding. But I had time to visit the city and spend time doing "other stuff".

Friday
Welcome party. Jorge, Nestor, Alberto prepared to Ponfi, Güelli, Miky and me (Ari arrived late) a welcome party, bringing some nice and orange stuff from Aldeasa. After the hotel kick-off meeting, we made "ther party". The next part is censored :-)


Saturday
At morning, walking to Sagrada Familia with Miky. Manu and Bea's Wedding.

Sunday
Munchkin game in a Kebab restaurant. Castellers de Cornellá exhibition.


Monday
Morning. Slow walk around Güell Park, maybe the most beautiful place in Barcelona, reading Gomorra (RobertoSaviano).

Evening. Visit Montjuïc hill. (Sorry, the photos are worst than bad)

Tuesday [FC Barcelona Day]

Camp Nou

Copa, Liga y Champions


Wednesday [Antoni Gaudí Day]

Tips
Cheap bus to the airport. Line 46 Plaza España - Aeropuerto Barcelona (El Prat) from 1.35€ (single ticket)

To reach, Montjuïc, the Funicular of Montjuïc is the most ecological, economical and confortable way of access to the hill. The Funicular of Montjuïc is integrated in the metro network and connection between both is at the metro station Paral·lel (Lines 2 and 3) all with the same ticket.
