Happened to me in Spain, was bar hopping with my friends just having beer. Stopped at a night club that was slow and the bartender hooked me up with a tall glass of jack Daniels for two bucks. I was so drunk that I downed it like it was water, the moment I put the glass down I immediately realized what a dumb move that was and started pounding water. Too late...
@megamanx181x, not related to the picture but I wanted to ask, what advice would you give to someone traveling to Spain? I'll be there for about 3 months staring in March; it'll be a few days in Madrid but the majority of the time I'll be in either Salamanca, Valladolid or some other town or city in the Castile y León region. I'll be living with a host family and can speak Spanish pretty decently, although I'm not used to saying vosotros and its conjugations. Is there anything you'd recommend doing (or avoiding) en España?
@Sexy Homunculus, I was only in Barcelona for a few days but what I can tell you is be courteous and receptive if they want to correct your Spanish. Happened to us a little cause were Mexican but overall it was fine. Barcelona is a night life city where everything opens late in the morning/early afternoon so consider that when going out. Overall we didn’t have a negative experience in Spain, just take your time enjoying the sites. The city itself can be beautiful cause it has the old stone roads and the Catholic Churches have a lot of artwork and gothic designs. I suggest checking out frommers for things to do in Madrid besides the usual tourists attractions.
@megamanx181x, ¡Muchas gracias!
@Sexy Homunculus, have fun!!
@megamanx181x, the one time I’ve allowed myself to be taken out drinking (it was my 21st birthday and it was more for my family rather than me although I’ll admit I was a little curious about how intoxication would feel) I just felt sleepy if that’s how it’s supposed to feel I see even less appeal for these substances than before
@megamanx181x, oh goodness, I got drunk in Barcelona in one of those clubs too. It just sneaks up on you sometimes. It was super hard to walk with the strobe lights and that’s when I knew.
@eleven, you may have drank a lot to go straight to sleepy, if you drink slowly you would feel l if he headed and loose, numbing and lighter.
@megamanx181x, not really the two maybe three drinks I had were according to my sister pretty weak in all honesty anything stronger and I likely would have puked it up if I could drink it at all I hate the taste of alcohol it tastes like the pure essence of cough syrup and the only alcoholic beverage that I’ve had and not despised was a wine cooler a drink with so little alcohol content it might as well be soda if you like it good for you you like something that I simply cannot
@eleven, that’s fine too.... next time use some periods
Sorta related, my buddy just came back to visit from Florida and it's the first time in months that I've seen him so he and I and a few other friends all went to this club and it was my first time every going to a club and my second time drinking and I had a blast, now I'm usually an introvert but it was so fun, it's 1am and I'm still a bit buzzed but to all my introverts out there give hanging out a shot it's actually kind of fun
More like, convincing myself I can take another shot and that I ain’t no bitch
