You know the saying: “What a small world?” It might be a bit of a cliché but it does occasionally prove itself to be true! I have been in Barcelona for approximately five weeks now and two days ago I met a guy, who, as it turns out, lives in the same city in Germany as I do!
He is doing a very similar work experience to the one I am doing here in Barcelona.
The only difference is he is going home in a few weeks whereas I will be able to see the city out-of-season, as I will stay here until the end of the year! I haven’t really started doing the ‘touristy’ things yet, but when my various friends and acquaintances do come here to visit (it is interesting to see how many people suddenly have time to visit if you offer them a free stay in a “cool” city), I might just make a start so that at least I have pictures of myself in and around the city’s many sights.
