No. And I'm far too excited to try!
This is my first of three blog posts as part of my trip to Barcelona with easyJet. As a Sports Journalism student, I've opted to interpret Barcelona by what it has to offer sports-wise, either as a spectator or getting directly involved in a sporting activity.

The second day gives us the chance to explore the city by ourselves and go wherever we want. In my opinion, you can't visit Barcelona as a sports fan without going to Camp Nou, the home of FC Barcelona. Sadly, they aren't scheduled to play whilst I'm staying there, but a tour around the stadium is a must. Not forgetting the museum, of course - what could be better than admiring the many trophies of one of the most famous and successful football clubs in the world?
I will be staying at the W Hotel on the coast, which gives me a perfect opportunity to observe some water sports and walk around the nearby harbours. I'm not sure what kind of activities the beach will offer but don't worry Dad, I do know I won't be taking part in any myself - "you're not insured for water sports!" he shrieked after I told him my plans. After all, I don't play the sports, I write about them! Getting up early for a stroll by the sea to watch the brave and the bonkers tackle the waves sounds like a much better proposition.

It's now 2am and there definitely isn't any point trying to sleep. Time to do some more research then, I suppose! Goodnight and see you in Barcelona!
PS - I don't speak a single word of Spanish. Wish me luck!
