Going on Holiday
Last year I went on holiday to Barcelona in Spain with my wife. It was my first trip to Barcelona and I had never been to Spain before. I had been to France, but that was when I was a child.
When we landed at Barcelona airport it was raining. I had thought that it was always sunny in Spain, so we hadn't brought any clothes for rainy weather. How stupid! After we had picked up our luggage, we caught a bus from the airport to the city centre.
While we were travelling on the bus, we asked a women if she knew how we could get to our hotel. She showed us on map where the hotel was and which bus stop to get off at.
The bus takes about 40 minutes to arrive in the middle of Barcelona. When the bus arrived at the last bus stop, we got off and started to walk to our hotel. After about 10 minutes we realised that we were lost and it was still raining. Unfortunately, neither of our mobile phones were working, so we couldn't look at an online map.
For about 30 minutes, we were trying to find the hotel. I was looking at the map and my wife was asking people if they knew where the hotel was. Nobody she asked, could speak English and my wife didn't know any Spanish (although she can speak some now) and I don't know any Spanish at all.
We finally found somebody who spoke English and he showed us where the hotel was. Five minutes after that we arrived at the hotel, very wet but happy. Even in the rain, Barcelona is a very beautiful city.
