Day 1

We’ll get together at our centrally located hotel at 5pm for a welcome and orientation writing session. We’ll go over the schedule in detail, meet our fellow participants, and get our creative juices flowing. Las Ramblas, ones of Barcelona’s liveliest streets is right outside our door. We’ll grab dinner nearby, starting with some tapas and wine. For those of us who are raring to go, we’ll roam the streets, admiring Barcelona’s exquisite architecture.
Day 2

We’ll wake up to a beautiful morning in Barcelona and enjoy a breakfast of croissants, cheeses, meats, and juice. Then, we’ll head to the hotel’s parlor, ready to begin our first workshop. We’ll begin writing. Our daily writing workshops are made up of traditional writing activities, as well as innovative exercises designed to open up our imaginations. We’ll break for lunch, indulging in delicious paella. Then, we’ll head to Gaudi’s world-renowned Sagarda Familia take part in an in depth and enlightening tour. For those of us who want more Gaudi, we’ll also have the chance to explore the architectural wonders of Casa Batllo and Casa Mila. After that, we’ll have the chance to go off on our own and explore more of Barcelona’s incredible food and nightlife.
Day 3

Once again we’ll begin our morning with breakfast followed by an experiential writing workshop. In the afternoon, we’ll see the city on foot, hitting up the Gothic Quarter, the Barcelona Cathedral, El Born District, and more, while learning about Barcelona’s rich history and culture from a local expert. For dinner, you can choose one of our recommended joints or find your own. Go check out the beautiful water on the promenade and split a sangria with new friends.
Day 4

Following another magical workshop, we’ll head to lunch at the Boqueria Market. We’ll sample Spanish cuisine from every stall that calls to us. Then, we’ll take the Barcelona metro to Park Guell, a beautiful garden filled with many of Gaudi’s fascinating works. We’ll take our time drifting through the park, and end the day with a celebratory dinner. Get ready for laughter, tears, hugs, and promises that you’ll make and keep to reconvene in new exotic locations.

We’ll savor our last breakfast and conclude our retreat with a final workshop. Hasta luego!
