One Amazing Thing I've Done

While in Barcelona I went and visited La Sagrada de Familia. The minute details and monstrous size of the Cathedral struck me like no other building ever has. I decided to pay the 11 euro fee to go inside; I hated it. Everything about it was just the opposite of the outside. If you're ever going to visit, don't go inside. Not worth it!

During my second year at school, I backpacked in the grand canyon for a week with a few other students from my school. It left me with a desire to spend more time in the outdoors, preferably camping in the mountains or on the beach. Being outside of the city under the stars makes everything a little better, the food, the beer, nothing beats it.
