Kia Gear Up Event in Barcelona, Spain – Day 4 (MoVernie Sightseeing)

The Kia Gear Up event is a 4 days, 3 nights trip to Barcelona, Spain, that consists lots of fun and adventurous activities for the global ambassadors to experience. On my Day 1 MoVernie BLOG, I have shared to you my first day tour around the city of Barcelona. On Day 2 of my MoVernie BLOG, we got to wear our personalized Kia Gear Up racing uniform & helmet. Day 3 is another special day. Every day is special and different. Just like Kia’s slogan, “The Power to Surprise!”

On Day 4, all the other Kia Global Ambassadors returned back to their respective countries. As for myself, since it was Victoria Long Weekend in Canada, I requested to Kia Canada that I would like to stay for 2 more nights so that I can sight see more about this city and get to experience a little bit more. And I thank Kia Canada for being so accommodating.

On Day 4, my Kia buddy drove me to the next hotel, which was called “Hotel Curious“. I made the booking and stayed there. It’s a boutique hotel that was located close to the famous La Rambla. Check out the photos below to see what I did during Day 4 of this Kia Gear Up Journey.

By sharing the photos and captions, I hope everyone can get a sense of what’s it like at the Kia Gear Up event and feel as if you are participating the fun activities with me 🙂

Spanish loves tapas and I understand why. Tapa are small dish to share with your family and friends. It’s great because you get to try different stuff.

This building looked interesting. The taxi driver told me this was once a bull fighting building until it has changed into a shopping mall once the bull fighting sport was banned a few years ago.
