Today the impossible happened. It started off as a normal work day on the beach with a team meeting in the beginning. All good, sun shining, let's sell some tickets everyone. Three hours passed by, three hours like any other three hours on a normal day in Barcelona.
While taking a break grabbing a quick bite to eat we suddenly get a message from one of our team managers. "Don't go near the Ramblas anyone, something horrible happened, whatever you to DON'T APPROACH THE RAMBLA RIGHT NOW". The first thing I do is to go online. "Barcelona accident - Rambla street - Terror attack" and so on. Still nothing. After loading google one more time it's there "Van crashed into big group of people on the main street in Barcelona". Approximately 2-3 kilometers from where we were on the beach. On the street where we live with several of my coworkers. The first thing that hit our minds? Impossible. This can't be true. An hour goes by with phone calls and more news updates from worried friends and families all around the world. A few people hurt maybe? Finally it's there: 13 dead and over 80 people hurt. 
Today 13 innocent people died on the street that we currently call our home. 13 innocent people had to put their lives to this man in a white van. Imagine all the affected people. Their friends? Their families? My friends were locked in restaurants and my boss saw dead people on the street. My roommate was taking a nap at home and woke up by people screaming. The bodies of young girls laying around. Blood. Police everywhere and people running in all directions, screaming and terrified. On the beach all I saw was people on their phones, reassuring their loved ones that they were safe, and people leaving the beach. My phone kept ringing nonstop and I had two newspapers that did short interviews with me. "How do you feel now?" the guy on the line asked for the local newspaper? "...Scared" was all that I could come up with. 
I thank higher powers that the people I know are alive and I mourn with everyone affected by this tragic event. It could have been any of us. 

The good life

Hey favs!! Hope you all are doing well. Here's a couple of photos from the past days. I've mostly been working and I'm more motivated than before so sales are good and I'm enjoying the job. Feel so lucky to have these people as coworkers, couldn't have asked for a better team honestly.
On  Sunday my friend Bryant texted me to come to the club Carpe Diem and I thought I'd just pop in and say hi after finishing work at 02:00 - BUT guess what? I'm looking for him in the club and then I hear a very familiar voice screaming "TAAARAAAA" and there she is: my best friend in the world throwing herself at me. My chin droppep for like ten minutes I'm not even joking. The rest of the night we spent there in Carpe, drinking champagne, eating strawberries and met some fun people and felt on top of the world. Best night out in Barcelona for sure.
Yesterday I worked like every day and did some good numbers, and in the evening it was time for our popular boat party on a five star VIP Catamaran that comes from Ibiza. I was picked to work in the bar as I sold the most tickets for the boat and it was the best 2,5 hours! People enjoyed it to a maximum despite the waves (good I grew up on boats and cruise ships so I don't mind that) and we had an awesome DJ aboard. In the evening after helping my boss to bring back the leftover champagne to her apartment I went for tapas with Sarah and Bryant. Best tapas I've had so far - go to Sensi Tapas in the Gothic Quarter if you're in BCN. After a late dinner I headed to Pacha for Robin Schulz with some of my coworkers. It was super crowded but as always met some fun and interesting people.
Today I'm off, went for breakfast with Sarah before she went back home to Åland and then I've been cleaning the apartment and did some administration stuff with our interns. Now we are going to play some volleyball on the beach and then dinner tonight with the team. 

Beach life, festival and a pool party

Hi there! Here's some pics from the past two weeks. We've had 3 days off that's been spent on the beach playing volleyball, going to a techno festival and yesterday we went to a pool party. What more, life is pretty good even though the job is more difficult than we thought. It's nice though cause you're always surrounded by this group of amazing people which I couldn't be happier about. Today I woke up really early (ok 8:30 but still) and went food shopping and been cleaning the kitchen and my room. At the moment we are seven people instead of five so it's pretty crowded haha but fun! Now I have to get ready soon and hit the beach, time to sell them ticketssss. xx
