Problems and Solutions: While traveling a problem may occur, think about those problems and how you would solve them.

Some of the problems I will face is missing my flight. I will solve this bye having a second flight ready just in case. A different one is not understanding the people and I will solve this problem by having a dictionary.

Optional: About the traveler. Who are you? Have you ever traveled?

I have traveled to Oklahoma just to visit, Kansas, once again just to visit. I did went to Houston, Texas to see family. We went to an amusement park that was located on top of the ocean. We spent Christmas together and it was fun.

Conclusion

I decided to go to Barcelona with a a friend that enjoys soccer and exploring. This is because he will have ideas of what to visit and being around someone that's fun will make it more fun. I wasted my money on a soccer game and a tour of a church. This won't affect me since I will have remaining. One problem was mot having enough money and i solver this by wasting it on cheap things.
