We had a long day of travel ahead of us so we got up pretty early, had breakfast, then started our journey to Barcelona. Because we were always traveling on such late notice, we took the slow trains that didn't require a reservation. At one point one of our 5 trains was cancelled, which would have made it impossible to get down to Barcelona in time. Luckily (the only good thing that's happened to us in France), a woman at the train station instead gave us 1st class tickets on a higher-speed train to make up for it. So we got into Barcelona and walked to our hostel. This one was definitely a lot more fun and we immediately made friends and hung out with the whole crew there. That night we went out to La Rambla to find a few bars, but it was pretty quiet. We ended up going to the beach and going swimming.
