Barcelona Class Trip (Part 2: Parc del Labirint and Sagrada Familia)


Here I have some pictures from the second day of my Barca trip :) We mainly went to this astoundingly beautiful garden called Parc del Labirint d'Horta (which literally means Labyrinth Park of Horta) and a gigantic Roman Catholic Church known as Sagrada Familia. There isn't much that I know about both of these places, but I do know that Sagrada Familia (the church), was designed by a locally famous Spanish Catalan architect known as Antoni Gaudi. In one of my next posts, I'll be sharing pictures of another place designed by the same architect. You would probably notice the unique aesthetic qualities of Gaudi's work :)

So here goes more pictures! :)

We came across a weird and huge slide-like matchbox figurine on our way to Parc del Labirint. 
Obviously, we had a great time sliding down that thing haha :p

Gaduh dengan Gajen haha :p

Aina was missing Tennis :(

Her car! Hahaha.

A picture of us five! :D

Hello Parc del Labirint!

Bak kata Gajen and Naz, this is a wild pokemon :3

Look closely at the space behind Aina :D

In the Labyrinth! :O

Waiting for the others to find us :p

Checking for signs of sunburn :D 

The labyrinth from above!

Kevin haha.

Next stop, Sagrada Familia :D
Fun fact: The building process of Sagrada Familia began in year 1882, and believe it or not, it's still under construction and it is expected to be completed in 2026!

Someone wanted to play sudoku I guess.

The exteriors of the building. 

Oh yeah, my friends and I watched the Barcelona vs PSG match that night :D 
Being in Barcelona while watching Barcelona play was like a miracle! 

Aaaaaaaaand we had Japanese food later that night ;)
