Ibiza Island, Spain
April 10th– April 12th
Friday, April 10th
This was our last weekend traveling out of Barcelona. Everyone on the trip was starting to feel the same way about leaving for another weekend. It is tiring. Traveling is slowly becoming less and less exciting. It is our last weekend traveling out of Barcelona. The airplanes, the buses, checking into a hotel, it all wears you out after a while. This weekend was different. There were not a lot sightseeing or tours. It was all about relaxing by the water with your friends.
Ibiza is known to be crazy island. A few months ago my friends and I booked a trip through Goodvibes that included free access to new clubs, transportation, and hotel accommodations. It was all worth it.
The flight was only 45 minutes long. Not only was it short, it was very calm. Once we landed, we took a short taxi to the hotel to find a massive line of study abroad students waiting to check in. The hotel staff was very inefficient. It took us two hours to check in.
Everyone on this trip was study abroad students from around Europe. I recognized a lot of kids from my classes. We traveled with a large group of friends. That made the trip even better.
The first day there was a party by the pool. Unfortunately, it was too cold for any to jump in the water. It was nice to socialize with other students and listen to the DJ that was provided.
When it came to go out, everyone was excited. It was one of my good friend’s 21st birthday. She had a blast. Goodvibes provided us with buses to the club. When I stepped inside, I was in awe. It was the coolest club I had ever been to. The club was only for student abroad students on the trip. This was nice to have everyone your age in one place.
In the center of the club was round dance floor caving into the ground. Everyone was in a huge circle dancing on the steps. The DJ was amazing. He played all American music that we recognized. There was even a live saxophone player. Above the dance floor was a round stage where people would dance. Everyone was having the best time. At 5am, the buses came around to pick everyone back up.

The boats that Goodvibes provided were leaving at 12:30pm. Today, a five hour long boat party was planned for the students. All of our friends got on the same huge boat. For the first 15 minutes, it was awful. The boat was rocking back and forth. The water was very rough. Nobody was feeling very well. People began getting sick over the side of the boat. It was not a pretty sight.
Once we were farther out in the ocean, the rocking stopped. Luckily, the DJ put everyone in a better mood.
The boat ride ended at 5pm. That night, the package took us to another club called Pacha. Ibiza is known for this club. It was the opening night and anyone was welcome. It was the biggest club I have ever seen. There were so many different areas, we didn’t get to see them all. The club was filled with people.

Check out was at 11am. The line was long so we went for breakfast instead of eating. Ibiza didn’t have any restaurants that served American breakfast food so we settled for pizza.
There were only two flight going to Barcelona that day. One was at 8am and the other at 6pm. In other words, everyone on our 6pm flight were study abroad students. Nobody wanted to wake up that early.
Ibiza was a crazy island. It was one of the best weekends I had. It was nice to have no worries for the weekend.
If you are going to Ibiza, I would recommended booking it through Goodvibes. For the price we paid, a lot was included. It was all worth it.
