The Hounds landed safely in Barcelona, Spain after a 7-hour flight from Newark, NJ around 12:15pm. After the Hounds left the airport they boarded two charter buses that took them to the Arenas Mall which use to be a bull fighting ring. Inside the team, staff and parents were able to find different options in food. A big hit was the Gelato! They also had the opportunity to hit up some of the shops while they we’re also allowed to go to the top level of the mall to see a view that looked over the circle in Plaça d'España.
