Milvian Goes Abroad

A weekend of adventures!

Midterms week was finally over and it was now time to relax! I don’t mind staying in Barcelona, as opposed to traveling to other countries because there’s always something to do here.

On Saturday, my friends and I decided to check out the Parc del Laberint d’Horta all the way up north in the edge of Barcelona. There were many gardens, statues, and hidden streams, but most importantly there was an awesome labyrinth and maze that we were able to go through.

On Sunday, a group of us went hiking at Sant Miquel del Fai which is about an hour north of Barcelona. We all woke up at the crack of dawn and began our adventure. We found a monastery that was built beside the cliffs with a great view of the mountains. Inside the monastery property, there were caves, chapels, huge rocks, and a waterfall surrounded by green grass. So much nature! We then hiked all the way down to the small village-like town for a break before heading back to the main city, Sant Feliu de Codines, before heading back to Barcelona. All together, we must have hiked about 10 miles! It was definitely the most fun I’ve had exploring the country side of Catalonia.

With a few free weekends in Barcelona left, I plan on escaping the city atmosphere and seeing more of the naturalistic country side.
