Tarragona or bust!

It definitely went bust.

Was supposed to head out to Tarragona today with Lauren and Cay. Cay's friend had a place out there and I figured it might be nice to get out of Barcelona and relax a bit for the weekend. Met up with Cay first and we had a really nice time talking. We talked about the course, life, and how much we love garlic!!! Dipping french fries in some garlic sauce...YUM!!!

We waited around forever for Lauren and Nerea to show up. Lauren finally got there at one point, but Nerea was nowhere to be found. I thought it was a little strange that the host would be late, especially when she knew that there was only one train heading out. After some time she ended up calling Cay and asked her where she was. "What do you mean where am I? I'm at the station." Apparently Nerea texted the wrong station to Cay. Had no idea what to do at that point. Nerea lost her signal and we couldn't speak with her anymore, there was no way we were going to have time to head out to the other station, and the train leaving from the station where we were at wasn't going to stop in Nerea's village. It was going to stop somewhere in Tarragona and then from there we would've had to figure out how to get to this village.

Lauren and Cay were both up for the adventure. "Let's just take the train, we can take a cab from there or a bus or something." Now, by this time it was 9pm. Tarragona was about an hour and a half away. There was no way I was going to start on an adventure like that so late in the evening. The purpose of this trip was for me to RELAX. I saw nothing relaxing about taking a trip to a strange city and playing the rest by ear. I excused myself although both Cay and Lauren kept trying to convince me to go. It was just not happening. Tarragona went bust.
