Barcelona Nights.....

We started the night off in the wrong neighborhood(Palau Reial instead of Placa Reial). We got to Placa Reial to see the Flamenco Show-it was sold out....THEN we found Sugar Bar(Calle de Raurich, 21) and El Rey de Copas(PLaca Reial)-'nuff said!

Best DJ spinning: Hip Hop, Pop, & Reggae @ Rey de Copas

Good Times!!!

Barcelona for New Years!!!!!!!!!!!/Airbnb

My international bestie and I are already having a great time in Barcelona. We can't wait to start touring the city; Park Guell, La Sagrada Familia, and Las Ramblas are first on the list. And our first night out will be to see a live Flamenco performance at Tarantos.

It's 1am, time to go to bed. We rented a very nice studio apartment in a charming old building near Plaza Espanya on Airbnb. Airbnb is a great social traveling website where you can rent out entire apartments or individuals rooms instead of booking a hotel room. It's a great way to get to know locals and have a less touristy experience. Here are pics of our home away from home.

Madrid Touring: Gran Via, La Plaza del Sol, El Teleferico, y Circulo de Bellas Artes

Happy Holidays!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying family and friends for the holidays! I enjoyed a very delicious seafood Christmas eve dinner and dancing with new friends. Here are a few pics of my last day of school before vacation. There is a scene of Christ's birth and pictures of our chocoalte con churros and scrumptious truffles!
