Final Weekend- Fish Pedicures, FC Barcelona & Labyrinth Park

As a reward to myself for finishing finals, I went with my friends Maria and Nick to get fish pedicures! It’s something I’ve wanted to do since being here, and the treatment is illegal in the United States so I jumped on the opportunity. (Also, I saw the Kardashians do it Greece and it looked fun). It was pretty weird at first and we were cracking up the entire time. It just felt like my feet were vibrating and little beads were pushing into it. I also got a fish manicure too and it felt pretty much the same. The fish are basically just eating all of your dead skin cells and making your feet really smooth and fresh.

My friends and I also went ice skating in the rink right on top of Placa Cataluna- the main square close to my school and apartment. It was cool to see a place I go to so often transformed for the holiday season, and we had a good time hanging out with each other and enjoying our last week together.

And what is living in Barcelona if you don’t experience an FC Barcelona Futbol game?! I’m so glad I got the chance to go to the last game that was taking place during my time in Spain, because the experience was something I can only get here. Interestingly, it was very different from American sports (although I’m basically just comparing it the American baseball crowds). The fans were very respectful and quiet during the game, and got crazy when a goal was scored or missed or some other important play occurred. But hardly anyone was talking during the game, and no one got out of there seats to use the bathroom or get something to eat. There were no TVs in the hallways of the stadium which were completely empty during the game, and not many bathrooms from what I saw. The game itself was extremely timely and the opposing team’s fans were in specific caged off sections. My friends and I were in the nosebleeds which turned out to be a plus because I got to really take in the huge Camp Nou Stadium and see everything that was going on.


One of the last things I got to do before leaving this amazing city was take a quick metro ride over the Labyrinth Park, a beautiful area with flowers, grass lawns, trees, statues, ponds, and most notably, an amazing labyrinth made of shrubs and bushes. It was nice to take a break from the city and enjoy ourselves.
