Location: Barcelona, Spain

Today was our first full day in the beautiful city of Barcelona. The shipmates all woke up to a favorite breakfast of yogurt and muesli- quite tasty it was. Then we took our MTE Navigation Master final, which lasted till lunch. Afterward, people went ashore to explore the vast and culturally rich city. Some went shopping at Zara while others traveled to the top of Barcelona and looked down over the city and harbor in awe. For the evening activity, the shipmates and staff wrote letters to each other showing their appreciation for one another. For some shipmates, this took quite a long, long time, but all in all, it was a pretty sweet day.
