|Flower Dog at the Guggenheim|
Greetings! Last weekend all of GSE Barcelona flew to Bilbao, which is in the north of Spain in a region called the Basque country. In this region, like every other region of Spain, there is a culture different from any other in Spain, and I am excited to say that I got to be a part of it for three days. I will start from the beginning and chronologically give you all an idea of what we did last weekend!
We flew in to Bilbao early Friday morning, and once we landed, we were taken to our hotel and allowed a couple hours to nap before exploring the world famous Guggenheim Museum, and after going on a walking tour followed by pintxos (pronounced peent-chos) tasting tour at three different bars. The Guggenheim is a great museum that is a wonder in architecture. Inside the museum there is artwork from various world famous artists, including Jeff Koons. Outside of the museum there were fountains and playgrounds in which my roommates and I played for an hour or two. After the museum, we embarked on the walking tour, and were orientated with the city (which was nice so we knew how to get around for the rest of the weekend).

The next day we headed to the beach in Bilbao via metro, which was not as beautiful as the one in San Sebastian, but I had zero complaints: a beach is a beach to me! We spent our last day relaxing, and headed home later that afternoon.
