It was raining heavily in Mumbai. I was eagerly waiting for courier guy to deliver mypassport which my father has sent. It was the last day to submit passport in college forstudents who wanted to go to SPAIN, they were charging extra from students whowanted to visit through college. It was 17 days trip for which included visit to Spain,Finland and Estonia.Few things I did before going;Exclusive ShoppingCurrency exchangeWe boarded flight Fin air flight from Mumbaiit was a huge flight as compared todomestic one, it had 4 rows and we were in a group of 60 students along with 2 faculties.In flight, they served a lot of free snacks provided us with dinner & breakfast. the first thingwhich amazed me, that they served unlimited free alcohol on demand. It was 12 hourslong flight. As soon as we reached we bought calling cards so that we can call our parents.Click below n listen to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara song which inspires its blog title.We reached Madrid capital of SpainIn Madrid, they have a lot of building and it’s not agreen city. We stayed in a posh hotel assigned rooms in a group of 3 . Free wi-fi wasprovided by the hotel which we used to make an update our presentations and update our pictures on ORKUT (way back in 2008 this was a HIT).We had a structure to do list for every day and for every student.From breakfast till dinner, after that, we used to assemble in groups in a common room and played various games or chit-chat about what we have seen whole day.We took a bus tour of Madrid stayed there for 4 days visiting factories and different monuments then we went to Barcelona.We were excited about every small thing we were seeing,Less and non-interfering people ( no one cared what u were wearing )Clean cityClear blue beach water in BarcelonaExotic Fresh fruits like strawberries being sold in carts in streetsList of first few things did in SpainHad a Starbucks coffee ( it literally made a hole in my pocket as it was very costly )Visited a casino ( entry is free for foreigner only they have to provide their passport, andfor their citizens it’s chargeable)Learned about Striptease club( never knew such thing exist and they had male-female bothwondered who visited them)Learned about various football teams visited stadium in BarcelonaVisited wine, Dairy, Coca-Cola factory.
