Elsa's adventure in Spain

28 August 2017

Unfotunately something terrible had to happen. Our car was stopped around la rambla, just next to the location of terror few days ago. My host was caught for using mobile phone while driving, and none of us used the seatbelt. I think we also attracted attention because we were all wearing hijab. My host got fine for €100 😭😭 but after the incident, he didn't get mad at all at us. He was just sad that he was suspected as a bad person while doing a good deed. All he wanted to do was just to be sociable. I shedded some tears because he was too kind. He even patted my head 😭
Our guest invited us to tour around barcelona with his car. He couldn't speak english so we had to use google translate converse with him. It was fun!
Finally arrived in Barcelona and we found our accomm that we booked through Airbnb. It was in a neighborhood which reminds me of Leon the proffessional. It was the kind of neighborhood that seems to hide a lot of criminals. But it was safe anyway.
Arrived at Girona. Turns out that Girona is 2 hours away from Barcelona. We spent quite a lot of time at the airport figuring out what to ride to reach the city centre, and I was still struggling with weswap account.
Heading from Edinburgh to Girona very early in the morning. Flight was at 07.45
