My trip to Ibiza

I apologize in advance for this papers content. I literally hate writing about anything which I am not interested in. Hence writing about my summer vacation was the only thing I could do.

This is about a trip I took with seven of my friends who I got to know due to all the things we experienced together. A not so cool boy’s night out journal is what this is.

My seven friends and I decided to visit the most notorious place to party, Ibiza. It is located in Spain. Our craving to experience youth to the fullest led us to this place. This place known to us threw YouTube, where you see the most scandalous women dancing in clubs all night long and rumours and comments from people who visited previously. Quotes from our friends: “So easy to get pussy” or “it’s the sickest place brah!” Even, “if you don’t get laid there, you suck!” So our confidence was high and we just couldn’t wait to get there.

We bought our selves plane tickets to and from Stockholm to Madrid (4 hours wait time) and a small plane to our final destination Ibiza. The cost for this was around 2500kr. The booking gets done faster then expected. Our hearts are pumping with excitement and nervousness. A day left for our trip to begin, thus everyone starts getting ready.

Shopping was in top of our list. We needed to look the best we could. We were competing against men from all around the world and even amongst our selves, so most of us sunk at least 2000kr on shorts, t-shirts, one or two sets of good jeans and shirt for the expensive clubs, glasses, swim shorts etc.

I needed to know about the place where I was getting my self into so I did some research and this is what I found…

Official name: The Kingdom of Spain
It is situated in the Iberian Peninsula in southern Europe. It is surrounded by France, Gibraltar, Portugal, Andorra, North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Capital: Madrid
Language: Spanish is the official language but there are other language used in different regions; Aranese, Basque, Catalan/Valencian and Galician. Population size: 45,5million in 2008
Size: 506,000M square meters (making it the second largest country in Western Europe and the European Union after France) Political Structure: Parliamentary monarchy (since 1978) King Juan Carlos is the head of state in Spain and Queen Sofia.

The day has come and we head to the airport by Arlanda Express. Here on out everything goes smoothly till we reach the plane. We all know the clichés from movies where the baby or an annoying kid sitting right behind you annoying the hell out of you. Well I was fortunate enough to go through that 3 out of 4 plane rides and god it was painful. This cute and fat 2-3 year old kid cried nonstop, jumped around and even kicked the seat which I was seated in. The whole plane suffered whenever he craved for something, which he did all the time!

The mother’s lack of ability to control the kid was just astonishing. And the father’s sense of pride for his son was plain irritating. When someone says hurt full things against an innocent child was just absurd to me, until that day. I think if anyone had the chance to kick that kid out, they would have done it with a smile. My 6hour plane ride with no rest, no food and not even alcohol with this “thing” behind me was unreal. We finally reach Madrid. The airport was marvellous, huge, neat, everything you could expect from one of the most visited place on the planet. People and the service we received were unexpectedly low. I might be spoiled since I live in Sweden and the service here is; welcoming smile, greetings in the start and a goodbye in the end. But there; none of them spoke English, since you don’t speak Spanish they acted rudely and they tried avoiding us as much as they could. One woman in a shop told us that they were about to close just so she could get rid of us. A waiter ignores us for 5 minutes just because he didn’t understand us and this was in...
