On the 8th – 12th March a group of 32 Sport and Travel and Tourism students spent 2 nights in Barcelona and 2 nights in Salou. During their trip they visited Nou Camp, Las Ramblas, La Boqueria market, had a harbour boat trip, went to Magnamera Shopping centre, the traditional Spanish town of Tarragona and had a beach sports day at Salou. All students enjoyed the trip and got to learn about the Spanish culture, way of life, language and the country’s history.
Barcelona/ Salou Comments.
Mohammed Sahid ~ I absolutely loved it. Best time of my life. Loved how we all went as strangers and came back like family.

Ethan Lord ~ The overall trip was one of the best experiences that I have been involved in. Everything about this trip was very well planned and it ran smoothly. I would recommend this trip to everybody.

Karen Bates – We had a brilliant trip and the students were great ambassadors to the college, to themselves and to the Sport, Travel and Tourism courses. They learnt and saw some fantastic sites and took part in some great activities whilst we were there. A real highlight of the trip was the sports/ beach day at Salou, Las Ramblas, Nou Camp, shopping and the La Boqueria market in Barcelona, the harbour boat ride in Barcelona and Tarragona. They had an amazing time and learnt a great deal about the Spanish culture and the history of this country. Overall they all really valued and enjoyed the trip and built a great rapport up with each other and the staff which I am sure will continue now they are back at college. It has inspired many of them to travel, to continue in their studies, gain fantastic grades and then pursue a career in their chosen industries. A successful trip all round.
