“My illusion is to be a princess of the sea and to visit fishes of the Aquarium”
Every year the staff of the Hotel Barcelona Princess chooses a common cause, and this year we have chosen an illusion of Make a Wish Spain to make it a reality.
Our illusion has its own name: Romina. We introduce her to you!
Romina is 3 years old and is a patient of Hematology. He is a very cheerful sea princess apprentice. As a good princess, her favorite color is pink and she loves to get dress in that color. And her greatest illusion is: To be a princess of the sea and visit the fishes of the Aquarium of Barcelona.
Romina has discovered her fascination for fishes thanks to the drawings on the walls of the hospital where she is attended and very excited she has explained us that she wants to give “fishy” kisses to the fishes that she will meet at the Aquarium.
But Romina also likes princesses a lot. And, for that reason, she has the illusion of becoming a princess of the sea like the little mermaid Ariel. And to be able to visit the aquarium fishes dressed as a princess and with a large crown.
Romina likes the sea and she is learning many things. The other day they went to the beach in Barcelona to collect shells, pebbles and sand to make a representation of the underwater world and she has prepared some homework that shows that she is an authentic expert!
Romina and her family lived in Ecuador and came to Barcelona in August last year for health reasons. They have had to extend their stay in the city due to medical complications and, while Romina’s father has had to return to his country, the little Romina “princess of the sea” and her mother have stayed in Barcelona.
Romina´s illusion is also our illusion and next 23rd of April the Barcelona Princess and the Negresco Princess Hotels will offer a rose of Sant Jordi to our guests to share the power of illusion that helps children with serious illnesses such as of Romina, so that they could recover from their illness as the knight of Sant Jordi defeated the dragon in the legend.
Throughout this last month of October and the beginning of November, the Inter-Hotel Games 2017 was held, a solidarity Olympiad with a set of sports in which 27 hotels of Barcelona participated.
During this time the companions of both urban hotels in Barcelona of the Princess Hotels & Resorts chain, have participated in several matches of indoor soccer, paddle, tennis, bowling and special gymkhanas.
Now we come to the end of these games and this year, on November 12 the finals of some sports were held, along with a final challenge, a 5-kilometer race in which the speed of the athletes will be shown.
This year, at the Hotel Barcelona Princess and the Hotel Negresco Princess we have joined this event for the first time and five members of our staff will participate in the final race to have fun and if possible achieve some of the first positions.
In addition to the race, other sports were also held, among which the final matches of paddle, indoor football and basketball.
To make a final celebration of the #iHotelGamesBCN, there will be a banquet for all participants and attendees, to put an end to this exciting solidarity challenge between the main hotels in the city of Barcelona.
All funds raised from the beginning to the end of the Inter-Hotel Games 2017 will go to Nutrició sense fronteres foundation, an organization that brings food to the most disadvantaged places. 20,000 euros will be donated to the ONG (NSF) for the project “BCN Comparteix el Menjar” (BCN Share the meal).
We look forward to the next solidarity Olympiad #iHotelGamesBCN.
