Activities

The first thing for day one is to just explore and see whats around our the hotel.Then the next day or day 2, my bother and I will be getting a tour of the Barcelona soccer field and team. That will cost $32.46.For day 3 we will be going to ride in a hot air balloon. That will cost $236.53. The hot air balloon will fly over the town, so we could get some really good pictues. We will also be going to a theme park and it has a shuttle to take us there from the hotel. This will cost $38.16.We will be going to the theme park on the 4th day. For day 5 we will be going shopping and exploring more. Day 6 we will be flying back to Denver.

Problems/Solutions

A problem I could come in to is not finding a way to change American money into their money. In Barcelona they use euros. The euro is worth more money than American money. Another problem is they speak a different language. They speak Spanish or Catalan and I only speak English. These problems can effect my trip because if I cant pay then I won't be able to get or do things I want. It can also effect my trip because I won't know what their saying and they won't know what I'm saying. I could solve these problems by changing the money before I leave and have a translator.

Conclusion/Reflection

In conclusion, I wanted to go to Barcelona mainly because I wanted to meet my favorite soccer player. My favorite soccer player is Messi. I'm taking my brother to help capture the moments.
