Trip to Catalonia - Milena

It has all started early in the morning when we caught the plane from Terminal 2 to Barcelona. As long as I realized we were in the sky on the way to Barcelona we turned a side in Italy.When we arrived in Italy we had a stay around 6-7 hours to the next flight.We all decided to go for a walk around the most attractive sights of Rome. We visited the Coliseum and the time passed unnoticeably and here we go again : in the plane on the way to Barcelona. After 2 hours and in front of us were our friends from the project “Comenius”. Each of us was ensconced in family, During these days in Catalonia  I stayed at Mark’s place. The first day was rather exhausting ,but pleasant and unforgettable . At 20:30 local time I was already with my Spanish family.Mark’s family made me feel myself as If I were at home. The following days we were everyday in Barcelona visiting different places.On 16.03 we visited the Spanish municipality which is such an interesting  and incredible place. It looks like as if it is a museum with that much pictorial and such remarkable capitels and ornaments on the doors and the columns. The same day we visited and   „ La Sagrada Familia  the cathedral of the famous architect Antonio Gaudi.The building is so remarkable that  as I stood in front of it I felt dazed by these sculptures surrounding everything  around this great project , which speaks with eloquence  for the artist’s  reflection, for his soul and heart.After visiting the great project of Antonio Gaudi  ,lead by Roxana we had the opportunity to go for a walk around the Roman part of Barcelona.We returned to Vilassar De Mar at the evening tired and happy from one interesting and unforgettable  day .

      17.03 was the day that we visited another  great place – the monastery “Montserrat”  which in the area of Catalonia . This place is one of the most famous in whole Catalonia and it eternalizes  the visions of  Virgin Mary.In the monastery are preserved  precious exhibits  of  quite religious masterpieces. I had the honor  to touch the statue of The Black Maiden  which is there. After this we came back and played football  on one of the town’s arcade.
     We had  2 more days left.On Sunday our day was free and we decided to go on the beach and to  swamp ourselves  in the water of  Mediterranean sea.
