STRAIGHT from Berlin to Barcelona. Escaping the harsh winter and spring days in Berlin. I was told they had
to suffer lots of snow, grey skies and temperatures below zero all the way until april.
First I went all around Catalunya:
- climbed with friends in Siurana, Margalef & Montsant
- stayed and couchsurfed, including an unforgettable week of carneval, in Barcelona, Reus, Vilafranca de Penedès, Sitges, Cornudella!

all day, all free: since some (like many spanish) were unemployed and didn’t have much money to spend, this was a cool way to spend our sunday

After all that climbing for 4 weeks in Murcia/Alicante I remembered what I was like in Barcelona
all those memories, so I went back to Catalunya
Since I still had some baggage left in Sarah’s house I went back to Cornudella
