The Gothic Quarter was the first place I ever traveled alone and stayed in a foreign country that didn't speak English as their native language. Even though I'm an adventurous and friendly person that first night was a little uneasy. Not knowing Catalon or Spanish made talking to the locals somewhat challenging. However getting myself out there and taking risks got me out of my shell and made Spain have a piece of my heart that will never go away. Have you ever traveled alone? Do it if you haven't! I highly recommend it.
