I left the day after my 20th birthday. It was a great addition to my birthday seeing as all my roommates threw me a surprise birthday party the night before... I had no idea!
As I sat down to blow out the candles I got an extra surprise waiting underneath the table. Scared the crap out of me. That night was full of surprises! Was an amazing birthday =]
I arrived in Barcelona after a long flight but was ready to get into the city and explore. I hadn't been outside New York or the US since my trip to Milan. From the airport I was picked up by a driver who brought me to where I would be living for the duration of my stay.
|I had my own room. Which was a bonus, because most model apartments are shared rooms.|
|Mediterranean Sea in the distance|
|Agbar Tower and La Sagrada Familia|
|The subways were EXTREMELY clean, quick, and efficient. NYC should take notes...|
|Cool photo I took while hanging out at the Mediterranean Sea. There's more where this came from... stay tuned ;)|
|Inside the agency TRAFFIC with wall of "out of town" model cards|
|One of the editorials I shot for a Spanish magazine while in Barcelona|
|No matter what city you visit, you'll always see a crazy bird lady|
|As well as designing La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi also designed multiple museums around Barcelona as well. This one reminds me of the mansion in the movie Casper|
|It was nice to be in a climate with palm trees while NY was still freezing in March =]|
|I think I went to the Sea every single day I was in Spain|
I had an amazing time in beautiful Barcelona. I met great people, learned new things about myself, and experienced memories that I will never forget. I booked work, got to experience a new culture for a second time not knowing any of the language ;) and visit a foreign city and country that I can now check off on my world list. What more could I ask for?? :)
