Yesterday, our group took a day trip to Tarragona, which is about an hour and 40 minutes outside of Barcelona. It is beautiful there! We visited the Roman ruins and learned a lot about the history of Tarragona, which was called Tarraco when the Romans lived there.
Everything that we saw was absolutely beautiful. The sea, the town, the Roman ruins…I loved it all! After the tour, we went to the beach for a few hours. I got sun burnt, but I swear I put enough sunscreen on! The water was great, a bit chilly at first, but it felt so refreshing. It was warmer in Tarragona than it is in Barcelona. But it has definitely gotten warmer in Barcelona since I first got here! Then, we walked around a bit and got some frozen yogurt. Yum!
