So, as far as my internships go nothing has changed. And I've accepted that at this point. That's how they started and that's how they finished. But you know, when life gives you lemons nobody said you had to squeeze them in your eyes or really do anything with them, go buy some chocolate instead and ignore them. Just think about that. So I've only got the rest of the week left and I finally get to be with my wife again and that's all I really care about after ten weeks.
But this last weekend I had an awesome adventure with my roommates and a new Italian friend of mine. Me, Jimmy, Sarah, and Lidia all took the train on the 25 euro half hour trip to Girona, a common sight for some Game of Thrones locations (don't ask, I don't know which) and we explored the city while torrential rains poured down upon us. The only one prepared for the event? Lidia. The Italian was the only one with enough common sense to bring an umbrella. That's fine, we were 'Mericans and we didn't melt.
Girona was pretty fun. It is a city with a larger medieval section than most older European cities and it's quite small. We all spent the night in our hostel where it was nice enough as a place to rest our heads but nothing to get too excited about.
The next day was probably one of the best trips that I have yet to take while here in Spain. We took yet another over priced ticket to the small town of Cadaques on the Costa Brava. Now if you have never heard of the Costa Brava to give you some perspective this place is where the natives of Barcelona like to go to "get their beach on". So if you come here you are getting El Mejor beach experience.
While Cadaques does not have the largest beaches it also has shallow rock shelves that jut out into the water that can be used for sunbathing and also provide some very cool places to snorkel and you can bet your Fourth of July that I brought all of my snorkel gear.
But I didn't start snorkeling until we all went on a hike to an out of commission lighthouse that honestly looked better from a distance than up close. One of the nicest things about the hike was finding a few secluded bays that we ended up visiting. One of the not so nice thing about finding secluded bays is finding the other people that like secluede bays... The nudists. So if any of the pictures seem "overexposed" I'm sorry. But I am not sorry about the pun, cuz that's comedy.
Lovely views, lovely water and an overall lovely time with my new friends. But you know, they can't replace the person that I want to see most this next weekend. My wife is coming to spend a week in Spain with me and I'm so excited to see her because I've missed her so much. And you know, who could blame me?
