Back in April 2013 me and three of my friends took a 6 day trip to Barcelona during our Easter break.
This was done on an absolute budget, including travel from Newcastle to Manchester, metros and trains in-between, flights from Manchester to Reus, hour long bus from Reus to Barcelona, 10 journey metro ticket round Barcelona anddd 5 nights accommodation and all travel back to Newcastle came to £120.
Who would pass up 6 days in Barcelona for £120, not us. Lorna who had to pay an extra £60 to get from Belfast to Newcastle decided to go the day before we booked. Decision well made.
Our base was round the corner from la sagrada familia so we were lucky to be so central.
It was my first trip without my family and made me realise that I can be independent and responsible.
Travel can be super cheap if your flexible and low maintenance, Barcelona thought me that and it also made my fear of hostels disappear. Overall win.
Great experiences with great people, I feel so blessed.
