Back to Uni I go...

Bit of an odd post today, yesterday I officially started back at University bright and early at 9am!
I thought I'd do a little 'all the things I take to uni' kind of thing. As I have bought a lot of new notebooks and raided WHSmiths to be quite honest! I think new things a) make me happy and b) get me in the wanting to learn way of thinking... if that makes any sense?
I bought all the essentials :) There's something so nice about new stationary; a 'fresh' notebook. I can't put my finger on what it is!

Travel Destinations: Barcelona

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be in Barcelona; what I wouldn't give to go back there now with this cold weather!
Barcelona is Spain's second largest city and the capital of Catalonia( and the largest city). They speak Catalan, a different language altogether to Spanish. And Barcelona has 3 airports serving it; El Prat, the city's airport, Gerona about 40 minutes from Barcelona and Reus- the same. It is very easy to get the train from El Prat to Barcelona central (which I did) and takes about 20 minutes. There is so much to see and do in the city, I just didn't have time to do it all, unfortunately.

A Day at the Paralympics: Friday 7th

Yesterday I had the chance to go to the Paralympic Games at Olympic park, because of a spare ticket being free.. long story.
Anyway, I wasn't into the hype of the Paralympics as much as the Olympics but though I should see the park, as I'll never see it like that ever again; The day was sooo hot, and so many people were there. The Megastore stressed me out (it was an effort working your way around people (even the keyring stand was 4 man deep!) and all food and drink was over priced. But hey ho, rant over! The Javellin train from Kings Cross to Stratford International was a dream though!
