Hello Eli,

I am going to be living a half hour south of Barcelona for the summer. (I'm a 19 yr-o female from the U.S.)
I'll be living with a host family.

Do you have any tips/suggestions besides the obvious attractions (Gaudi's stuff etc.)? Any good day trips out of the city? or any good overnight trips?
Glad you enjoyed your trip!
Thanks in advance for any info!
I leave in 16 days!!! Woohoo!!

Leah, only 16 days to go?? Good stuff. You'll have a fantastic time!.

Lots of decent places for a day out, many more for a weekend trip / overnighter. And no lack of things to do in the city area as well.

A favourite day trip of mine is the Montserrat monestary (west of the city on the FGC train). Girona is a lovely town which is often ignored by people passing through with the airport (cheapies like easyjet etc fly from there). Andorra/alpine area etc are doable for a daytrip, better for longer. So many more, i could go on and on!
