Busy, busy Spain!!!

This trip hasn´t been nearly as relaxing as my normal trips because we have been so busy filming and seeing and doing so many awesome things! There has been hardly any time for the internet at all so I am so far behind in my blogging and everything else!
I had a great 3 nights in Valencia and stayed at the Purple Nest hostel ( )
which I highly, highly recommend! I knew nothing about Valencia really before going there, but now am in love with the city and wish that I had stayed there longer, its high up there on my list of favorites now, right next to Edinburgh, Scotland.
The La Tomatina fight in Bunol, Spain was easily one of the craziest things I have ever done and have ever scene. Picture a wicked awesome party, then add tons of tomatoes and then spread out across a whole town of 9,000, but then throw 40,000 extra people into it! It was unreal, definitely a check off of the old bucket list for me. Last night Cam and I (my friend/camera man who I have convinced to follow me around Spain with a video camera to make ) took a bus from Valencia to Barcelona. It was an Alsa Bus but was Supra+ , we had no clue what the ¨supra+¨part of meant but just that it cpst 5euros more, but was at a time we wanted. We got on the bus and were handed a bag full of food. The seats fully reclined and there was so much room because there were only 3 seats going across the width of the bus instead of the standard 4, sooo awesome. I instantly fell asleep and when I woke up was in Barcelona!!
Now I´m sitting here exhausted with a bit of a cold and alot of city dirt all over me. Today may have been one of the most intense days of the trip as we had one day to do everything possible in Barcelona and I think we got quite close to achieving that goal. We saw so much Gaudi and got a great high up panormaic view of the city, but some souvenirs of course and had some great food. Its time to hang out for a bit in the hostel before bed, Madrid in the morning!!
Stay tuned, tell your friends and be sure to check out the other site!
