Stupid girl from Nordic country

I have only 6 days left from my internship, because I’m having 2 days off this week. I still haven’t used my holiday days, except 2 of them when we we’re in Paris..
This week has been kind of annoying, all because I have been in such a pain all the time. We we’re at the beach on Saturday and I got so sunburned. Here is how the conversation went:
Me: I don’t need no lotions, I don’t ever get burned..
Friend: Nora, you’re legs are looking kind of red, maybe you should put some lotion.
Me: No no no, I know what I’m doing..
And the result: I’m so burned that I look like a lobster and my skin is peeling off and my legs are swollen. And the most embarrassing thing is that, I have big white circles in my face, cos’ of the sunglasses.. ://// So not good, but at least I finally learned something an’ next time I got to beach I put some kids sun lotion, so I defiantly will not get burned again !

Other than that, weekend was nice, we went to see ice hockey (Finland-Canada) to Flaherty’s Inn Irish Pub on Friday, but sadly Finland sucked. The place was full of Finns, which was weird after 5 months.
On Sunday, I went with Reetta’s Finnish friend Aino to Parc Guell, Casa Mila, Casa Batllo and Sagrada Familia, little bit tourist sightseeing’s yet again.
I went yesterday to Palacio de Flamenco with my work mates to see Flamenco Show and to enjoy Sangria. The show was very good, the dancers and players really knew what they we’re doing. The show lasts 1 hour and groups can also enjoy meal before the actual show.
I’m going this weekend to work at the beach, my job is to promote one pub crawl to tourists. Heh let’s see how that goes..

Summer is here, finally !!

Past week has been pretty busy here. On Friday I had the busiest day ever, cos’ I felt I have to be in so many places at the same time. First I ran to get new football tickets, then I went to Sagrada Familia to pick up tickets and wait that this big student group comes there an’ I had to advise them to get in etc. then I had to went to this hotel which was one hour away from Barcelona centre and it took forever with all different transportation and after that I still went to Tryp Apolo to deliver tickets..Long long day, I must say...
But weekend was relaxing, partying (surprise surprise) on Friday night and yesterday I was at beach with one German girl. The weather was nice yes, but I still don’t get those tourists that are already in their bikinis and oh, we saw one 50-60 years old fat man running there naked (like Baywatch-style)..haha that was something I hope I wouldn’t have saw.
This week has been nice, today f.e. I went to one apartment to deliver F1-tickets to some Finnish people, because the race is in Circuit de Catalunya this weekend. So lot of people in BCN! They have promised +30 for this weekend, so I guess this is the first time we can actually go to the beach to take sun, FINALLY! Even though I’m always cold, so I guess I’m not able to even touch the water just yet..
Hasta luego !!

Buen Día del Trabajo !

I cannot believe that I have only little bit over 3 weeks left from my training. I have done now all my school work considering this training, so I should be ready to graduate.
Yesterday was VAPPU, here it is Día del Trabajo, so we had day off. We did what is tradition in Finland, and went to Parque de la Ciutadella to enjoy champagne and strawberries. My workmate Piia had also made traditional potato salad, which was so good. It was so nice weather also, so we could spend the whole day in park J
Last week I weren’t that lucky when it comes to picking up tickets. First on Thursday, I went to Sagrada Familia and tried to get tickets to one group coming up this week and couldn’t get them cos’ of some new rules. Then on Friday, I went to Camp Nou to pick up couple tickets to Barca-Malaga game, but the ticket office was already closed.. Aargh, well fortunately I got them on Monday and still had time to deliver those to client’s hotel cos’ the game is not until today.
Weekend was very fun, cos’ my friend from London, Miia, was here. On Saturday, we took funicular to Montjuic and went up to the Castle in Montjuic with teléferic. It was my first time in one those too, but I must admit that 6 euros for that short trip is just too much.. But of course all the things to tourists are expensive, no can do.. That’s why we also decided to walk down from the Montjuic. We also went to the beach, although the weather wasn’t that nice :/ On Saturday night, we had Girl’s tortilla night with Swedish, Finnish and British girls. Very much fun J
Ok, I guess this is everything for this week. Oh last week was also my last Spanish lesson, I really enjoyed those classes, even though sometimes it was very tiring after work.. But I liked my teacher Ana very much and I’m happy to got friends also from the class.  And of course the main thing is that I feel that I learned J
Vale, hasta la próxima semana !
