Barcelona for my big 3-0!
About this blog
For my big 3-0, I had planned to climb Kilimanjaro and spend my birthday weekend at the summit with REI Adventures, but as things turned out, I landed a new job around Thanksgiving 2010 and could not take off two weeks to go on vacation at the beginning of a new career. So, a little planning and scheming and luck, four of us girls would go together and rent an apartment. A good friend an her husband were planning to go to the Caribbean, but I talked her into going to Spain. A post on Facebook with my plans yielded another friend and her husband who were touring Spain... and we all arranged to meet in Barcelona! This is my first trip to Europe, so I was super excited. The women in my apartment were: Kate - young Russian red-head who was my coworker (before I landed the new job!). She's funny, talks fast, walks fast, and we happen to always order the same thing on the menu. Gerty - Haitian woman who was a coworker from back in 2006. We've since traveled to Hawaii (see Hawaii blog) Stacy - Chinese woman who is as gullible and and naive as they come. Her English is rather limited, but the rest of the ladies are more than happy to accomodate.
