An unexpected opportunity

To cut a long story nice and short, the opportunity has arisen for me to spend a few weeks with my parents in South America!
I am VERY excited about seeing them again and visiting a continent i have never been to before! (although i cant help but feel a little sad about cutting short my time in Barcelona). The logistics of organising this however have been a tad stressful (you wouldnt belive how many lists i have written!)

and unfortunately it means i have to discontinue my work after this friday ( I have had such a great experience in the office and met many wonderful people who have been incredibly kind, taking me on board and teaching me enourmous amounts during my short internship). I am certainly in no position to even consider complaining as I have been afforded yet ANOTHER exciting opportunity and as i have been trying my best to do -will make the most of every moment of it! I have now organised flights, accomodation and a place to leave some of my belongings amongst a plethora of other things which is why its taken me so long to get to publishing this post – my apologies again! (I also went to the gym for a solid run on monday and on Tuesday did another dance class with my friend from work, then cardio and toning class straight after that and then after a drink went with one of her friends went and had a delcious dinner at the trendy Japanese restaurant Miu!
– we had a mouth watering salad, assorted sashimi ( i have been CRAVING Japanese for so long as its an absolute staple of my diet back home and i hadnt had any japanese since starting my trip) and we also tried their bizarre specialty Sushi with marinated fish, avocado and banana – yes – banana! And it was DELICOUS!!!! i would have loved to be experimenting with the chef when they discovered this strange but delightful combination!!

Oh and this weekend i am going to an exciting destination with two new friends and when i get back (after telling you all about it) i will be spending the week finalizing plans and doing as much exploring as i can! This will be part research as my parents will spend just under a week with me in Barcelona after the trip to South America and i want to show them the best this city and the surrounding area has to offer! – so i am also in the throws of planning this aswell!

VALE (ok in Spanish) thats my news for the moment! Sorry this post is a little scrappy and not as well written as some of my others, time isnt currently of the essence. Warm wishes. HG
