What Is Happening??
Barcelona - Tourist haven and party central at youth hostel Kabul. After wasting enough time searching for overly priced hotels in other locations, Dan and I made the wise choice to stay at Kabul. Lonely planet states 'do not stay here if you want to sleep' perfect, lets go there! After meeting our fellow Aussie dorm mates, we grabbed a bottle of bourbon and hit the booze. We spent most of the evening trying to win games of billiards and meeting loads of cool folk. Strangley enough, Kris Malcolm was here at the same time and was quite a welcome surprise when he strolled down the stairs to the common room. The following day, we were greated with perfect weather and a minimal hangover, so it was time for a bike tour of the city. This tour, known as 'Mikes Bike Tours' was funnily run by Ivan?? but it was a great tour that went for 5 hours and visited all the sights you would want to see + more. The good thing is that your guide knows a lot about the area and is full of fascinating little facts to keep you interested whilst you stop to rest. These tours operate in a few European cities and I would strongly recommend 'Mikes Bike Tour' for anyone visiting these cities. (I should get a free tour for this advert!). After heading back to the hostel to rest the legs and have a few rounds of cards, it was time to try and get to Girona to leave the next morning. After our experience at Girona - trying to find food, accomadation and the airport, all unsuccesfully (we ate at a servo, slept in the car and spent 90 mins driving 20ks to the airport) I dont like that place much. Sadly, all good journeys come to an end and I like to think that Barcelona was the last memory of Spain for this visit. Overall, a great time was had and I am looking forward to my next trip - 2 weeks snowboarding in Germany for Xmas. Hooroo.
