Barcelona is a fascinating city, with a mix of modern and historic architecture.
The hostel I stayed at was quite interesting, the building had originally been a school, and was converted into a hostel. Because of this, there was much more spacious common areas than most hostels. It was also only a short walk from the beach, and directly next to a metro station.
I started my Halloween off by going to the Barcelona Aquarium. I didn’t expect it to be very busy on a Monday morning, but the place was packed.
After visiting the aquarium, I met up with some other travelers at noon for a Halloween/birthday party. We stayed at the beach until past midnight, then went out to find a Halloween street party to join. It was a very fun Halloween, swimming and relaxing all day, then partying all night.
The next afternoon, I met with the same group, and we hiked up to an old bunker. It has the best view of the city, and we watched the sun set over Barcelona. Afterwards, we went to a tapas bar and hung out into the evening.
