Spring Break. April 19, 2009

During my spring break, I traveled to three different places. First, a few friends and I traveled to Lisbon, Portugal for four days. When we first arrived in the city of Lisbon we were very confused by the set up. It took us a while to adjust to the steep hills that almost resembled San Francisco. While we were there the weather was beautiful and three out of the four days we traveled an a half hour outside of Lisbon to a small beach town called CasCais.060912aWe had to take a metro then a train there, but it was definitely worth it. There were shops and restaurants everywhere with two beaches that weren’t very crowded at all. After four days in Lisbon we had to take an eight hour bus ride to Sevilla. Although it was very long, when we finally got there I was happy to be back in Spain. We lost an entire day to traveling, so the one full day we had there we walked around, and ended up spending most of the day in a park. The next day, we took a train to Marbella and stayed there for the last four days of our spring break. Marbella is a very beautiful place, but I don’t think the hotel likes Americans very much because they were extremely rude and not accomadating whatsoever. My spring break consisted of a lot of traveling,marbella but once we arrived at our destinations all my friends and I did was lay by the pool or the beach, so it ended up being a very relaxing time. Spring break was so much fun, but I was very happy to get back to Barcelona by the end of it all.
