Hi!
I'm coming from Canada, and I'm going to get to Barcelona a couple days early- on Thursday, and explore a bit! Will probably stay at our meet hostel.

Last I checked, there were 8 people going so far!

I'm getting really excited. Are you staying in Lisbon afterwards at all?

Hi!!
I am not staying longer in Lisbon. I couldn't work it out, but I wish was!
Are you getting a ticket for the Alhambra?

I haven't bought a ticket yet for the Alhambra. Are you guys going to?

Momina- The soccer match sounds really fun, but I also just really want to explore the city as I've never been before! I don't know!

For once, I'm trying not to overplan this trip (or plan at all!) and just go with the flow of what I feel like doing in the moment, and experience adventures as they appear!

We are getting so close-one week from right now, my plane takes off!!

Hey, yes I think I will purchase a ticket to Alhambra today or tomorrow. Are you thinking the first day we get there?

I'm also staying one extra night in Lisbon on the way back

Looking forward to meeting everyone

Maybe! I do want to see Parc Guell.

I arrive Thursday night- I'm staying at what was (until a few hours ago) our meet hostel- so. Ow that they've changed it last min, I'm going to have to spend part of my day on Saturday moving hostels, which is kind of sad.

I'm staying for 4 extra days in Lisbon on the way back. There are so many cool places around Lisbon to Visit!
