Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Last weekend, I visited my cousin Lisa in Barcelona. She moved there two months ago. I took the high-speed train from Madrid. It was very fast, I arrived in just two hours! Lisa knew a good local restaurant where we enjoyed Catalan specialities. We also drank cava! Then, we took the cable car to go up to Montjuic. From up there, we could see all of Barcelona. It was magnificent!
