Free Time planning for a Barcelona field studies visit
It can be difficult in advance to estimate exactly how much may be achieved during a normal fieldwork working day, since much depends on factors such as the weather and how fresh and motivated the students are. The suggested study times are averages. Free time must be built in for breaks, lunch, showering etc. and relaxation! Suitable times and safe locations for student breaks are a vital part of any trip planning.
Evening Free Time
It is recommended that a balance is sought during your trip whereby evening work is compensated by some 'free time' which you may prefer to structure. A reasonable time for 'lights out' is strongly advised in order that students are fresh to face demanding work the following morning.
