This year I spent New Years in Barcelona, a town that I’ve visited many times before, but it seems like I never get tired of it. I love the pace, which is like half the pace of Stockholm, which is perfect pace for spending spare time and relax from work.
What I haven’t experienced before was going to a home game with Barcelona, which was an awesome experience. In Barcelona football seems more like a religion, a way of belief, rather than a sport, and you sure can feel that in the arena. Barcelona had a really good night and beat Real Betis big time. However there are these “small” pieces of flavor that makes watching Barcelona so great.
The Spanish people are really good at living their life in the present, and New Years Eve isn’t any different. The party held on during the night, and many people went to sleep between 6 and 8 in the morning. This is what the streets looked like at 10 AM. 🙂
I hope you’ve had a great start of your 2016!
