After the short hop through the Straits of Gibraltar, and three days at sea, we arrived in Barcelona on May 28. Even though Vigo and Barcelona are in the same country, the two cities have very different vibes. Vigo had a relaxed, sort of laid-back feeling; Barcelona, with 1.6 million inhabitants, feels as if it’s alive! There’s so much to do and explore. The city is very old, with gorgeous cathedrals spotting the landscape. Students really enjoyed their time ashore here. They visited the zoo, aquarium, and mall and also explored the cobbled streets of Spain.
