Student blog: Pivot Point Study Abroad in Barcelona

This month, we packed our passports and jetsetted to Barcelona! From the top of Monjuich Hill to the cobbled stones of Girona, here’s what MC College Saskatoon Student, Meaghan Palmer, had to say about the trip:

As we landed in Barcelona, Spain I knew I was going to love it there. Our first excursion was a trip to the little town of Sitges just outside Barcelona. We had been travelling for many hours with very little sleep but it was still beautiful. We were surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and small buildings that looked like something from the past.

After we toured the town for a bit we were served paella; which is a traditional Spanish dish at a restaurant located just off the beach. It was a wonderful first day in Barcelona!

Our time in Barcelona was filled with tours of the beautiful city. We were able to see the Sagrada Familia which is a church designed by Gaude that has been being built for over a hundred years and is planned to be finished in 2026.

During our time there we got the privilege of two days of international training. We learned so much in those two days that we are now able to take back and further our careers in the beauty industry!

We also got to see things like the Picasso museum and the Cathedral of Barcelona.

My favorite part was our tour of the city from the top part of a double decker bus. The day was beautiful and we were able to enjoy the sun while taking in the breath taking sites of Barcelona.

My eight days in Barcelona was filled with culture, shopping, dining, and training.

We sipped wine in the center of Barcelona on the rooftop of our hotel. We dined in five star restaurants while enjoying the company of each other. I highly recommend Pivot Point’s study abroad trip to anyone who wants to experience culture, and the opportunity of international training. It was an experience I will never forget.
