Sorry I have t done a post about Christmas yet, this will have to make do until I can get some free time on my hands (pull myself away from Supernatural).
After arriving at Barcelona Airport and using my pathetic attempt at Spanish to find an information booth, we finally found a lovely pamphlet for the Aerobus, which goes from (you guessed it!) Barcelona to the Aeroport (airport). The Aero bus travels from terminal 1 or 2 through Barcelona stopping at:
- Pl. Espanya
- Gran Via – Urgell
- Pl. Universitat
- Pl. Catalunya (from here it turns back to the airport)
- Sepuleds- Urgell
- Pl. Espanya
- Terminal 1/2 (depending which bus you are on)
(they all have access to the metro) I would say 40 minutes each way.
I got off at Pl. Universitat, using City maps 2 Go, I was able to tell exactly where I was, I really couldn’t recommend it enough. We ended up staying in the Pension Miami, literally across the road and down a bit from where we got off the bus (you will see an orange shop on the left opposite the stop), the pension miami is close to la Rambla, which is one of the must see boulevard/esplanades in Barcelona.
The Pension Miami was a little
… how’s your father, some of the rooms didn’t have windows, but I am not complaining, I had a good nights sleep, although I would recommend staying in a Youth Hostel rather than a hotel, you have more fun and meet lots more people.
Strange enough, my first meal in Barcelona was actually a kebab…
First meal in Spain and I chose to have a Kebab… I never was too bright.

It’s strange that I came across this picture by chance this morning.
I decided four days ago to go cold Turkey on my medication, the last time I tried to do this (two months ago) I lasted 16 days. But this time, words can not describe how sick I was.
When the Nurse asked me why I thought I could just stop, I told her I didn’t want to be just another depressed person… It’s rare now for people to not suffer from a mental illness and that makes me feel so sad that it’s considered normal for kids my age to have:
(Addictions in general)
I’m not sure if it bothers anyone else. But just think about it, when your parents were growing up, people didn’t understand mental illness. How strong all those people were who had no one to comfort them. We are so so lucky.
