So… this is the last post on the Barcelona (and Spain) leg of our European adventures! It was difficult to say ‘adios!’ to this beautiful city and country, because we had so much fun touring and appreciated everything about the place. Looking at the bright side, we had more cities to explore in the coming days!
We only had a few hours left on our last day, and we spent the morning packing our things. After our check out, we still had time to visit a nearby attraction – the Arc de Triomf.
The “Arc de Triumph” was build as the entrance to the World Exposition in 1888. Around the arc, the emblem of Barcelona and the Spanish provinces had been affixed.
We took a few photos and then proceeded to our last stop – the cruise terminal. Leaving Barcelona was difficult, but boarding a cruise ship was very exciting. It was my first time!After our check-in, we boarded the cruise ship. Of course, we took a few photos to document the experience!Our ship’s name was Emerald Princess – very fancy! Upon entering the ship, we proceeded to the buffet to have our welcome lunch. The cruise was perfect for big eaters like my brothers and I – we had so many choices. Aside from the buffet which was available almost all day, we also had a sit-down dinner every night. There were also other restaurants available on deck, as well as pizza and ice cream! Oh and I almost forgot, room service for 24 hours. Food heaven!
The ship itself was beautiful, and it was so large. I just felt so grateful to be there! It was going to be an exciting week full of new experiences. Next stop, France!
