Barcelona: where idealism and reality become one

  Barcelonas highs: WIndow to the city

Mora B.

But now you ask me: Well thank you bro, but what is this N.I.E thing you’re talking about?

As I needed the N.I.E to be also able to work (and get paid by the same time), my company was really comprehensive about it and allowed me to ditch two days of work to be able to get it done. I still got really lucky because I managed to do it in only two days and everything was done, but a friend of mine only managed to get it after 3 months after moving in Barcelona.

Barcelona : Falling in love with Catalunyas capital

Have you ever been in love? Yes, I thought I had too. Until I arrived in Barcelona. It was love at first sight and I can still remember how my heart pumped when I sat on the bus on my way to the centre. Barcelona, the capital of Catalunya, the second largest city in Spain. My true love. I was 25 years old and I needed a change. A big change. So when I got a job offer in Barcelona, I quit my job, packed my bags and left Trondheim. September 2010 was the month when I started the journey that was going to change my life forever. And for the better.

Ellie Snow

The Trip to Formentera

We were all one month inside our summer in Ibiza, already with the head full of happenings, so we decided that we could all use a day off from the craziness. Although i was skeptic about it, i joined them. In high season there are boats to Formentera  on every 15 minutes from Ibiza, you can find from Valencia, Barcelona and from the rest small islands around quite often, as it turned out to be a place that is often visited from people that travel around. We took some instructions, some flyers and promotion material to see and to read what can we do to use the day completely and to make sort of a plan. We decided to go for the cycling option, which according to me was the best, especially on Formentera, where there are cycling tracks all over the island. We decided to go over all of the beaches that we could, enjoy a nice swim and relax for short time, and hit the next one. I have to mention few of them that really caught my eye, such as Cala Saona, Platja Migjorn, Platja Es Arenals, but the ones that are absolutely amazing, mesmerizing, large, long whiteness of sand and deep, deep blue waters that are dragging you inside, calling you in the underwater journey are definitely Platja Migjorn, Illetes and Llevant. All over 100 meters long beaches with the most relaxed people you could meet in the world, with no promoters or workers of any kind – just you, the sand, the water, and the sun.

Calle Galiana and Calle Rivero, the oldest streets

You can also take a stroll in the Ferrera Park, situated between the two streets. For Woody Allen fans, the guitar playing scene from Vicky Cristina Barcelona was filmed there.

Barcelona: Between dream and reality

Magic and Legends of Barcelona When we say there is one magic city that can awaken all your senses, lead  you into a state of complete infatuation, whether you are a gourmand, football fanatic, artist, sailor, mountaineer, historian, shopaholic, air-monger, most of people would think that such a paradise could not be found anywhere in the secular world.

Cadaques - the paradise in the north of Catalunya

I work as  a children´s entertainer in La Pineda, Tarragona and in my day off I was looking for a short escapade. Last year, some local friends told me about this small fishing town, which is considered to be the pearl of the Costa Brava. I never had the chance to get there, as it’s quite far, but this time, I decided to go for it, so I went to Cadaques. Cadaques is a small village in Alt Emporda, extreme north of Costa Brava, province of Girona, Spain. It took us quite a while to get there as it´s about 3 hours away from Tarragona (and about 2 hours away from Barcelona). However, it is the perfect place if you seek tranquility or even more active things to do.

BARCELONA: THE OBVIOUS GEM

For those who are greedy like me, I have good news: About a year ago I found a magical place where all of this (and probably much more) can be experienced together without spending more than one plane ticket. Barcelona, the Catalan capital is not exactly a hidden gem, but its potential in grabbing our hearts and soul by offering everything an enthusiastic traveller wishes, grows on every season. Whether you have already been there or not, let me tell you what I found so special about this place that definitely worth a second visit. Or third, or fourth… You decide.

5 reasons why…Why you will fall in love with Barcelona

Hashtag of this voyage was #vickychristinabarcelona. Yes, due to coincidence our names and main destination matched to the popular film. But our holidays didn’t cross with that plot. We didn’t seek ourselves or love adventures. However, we spent a great, bright and amazingly beautiful time in Barcelona. Here are 5 reasons why.

WAY TO WAVES

Getting there

El-Prat is located just outside the city and is perfect if all you want to do is visit Barcelona.

Amy Capel

How to get there

Out of the city, there is an airport called Girona – Costa Brava so you can easily fly here from different parts of Europe or other cities of Spain. Also, there is a possibility to get here by train or by bus since Girona is located 100 km from Barcelona (approximately 50-90 min). And of course, you can always ride in a car.

Welcome to the hidden magic of Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain). As Saint Augustine recalled, if the world is a book, those who do not travel stop at the first page. So, we have just 2 days. Don’t panic. As a Tourist Information Office Assistant in Barcelona, it is a great pleasure for me to present to you this stunning city and to help you by showing you how to achieve the perfect itinerary for time-sensitive passengers.

From Barca to Girona

I arrived to Spain,Barcelona in the early morning from Moscow. I choose El-Prat airport because there is no straight flight from Moscow to Girona.But it was ok for me. A lot of trains moves from Barcelona to Girona every 30 minutes.But the problem was that there is no straight trains from El-Prat Airport to Girona.

Spain: Cycling around Catalunya

What most of the people see in their minds when we think about vacation in Spain is probably a quite simple image – sun, beach, palm trees, parties, shopping on La Rambla and visiting La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. Those who have already been to this country during the summer will most likely confirm that this vision is rather accurate. But are those the only attractions waiting for us there? Absolutely not! Spain is a very diverse country, depending to which region we will go. Not all the places are hot in the summer and there is way more to be seen than only the landscape of sandy beaches full of tourists.

How it all started or the beginning of my Spanish journey

In the past year, travel has become a huge part of my life. And surely when summer came to an end I started looking for a way to make it last a little longer. So with October coming, I thought what better way to enjoy a few more days of sunshine than a trip to Spain? Browsing through various destinations that countless people praised I was trying to avoid the megapolises like Madrid and Barcelona and was thinking more of a small and not as crowded city and definitely near the coast! And this is exactly how I came across Valencia. Valencia is a beautiful little city in the southeast part of Spain filled with historic buildings and charming little streets. Now in another article, I’ll probably tell you all about the beautiful sights we saw and the lovely experiences but now I want to share with you some travel tips I really wish I knew before I went and I believe will make your trip smoother. First of all, I should make it clear that probably like most Europeans nowadays I travel low-cost air companies. I’ve mostly had great experiences so far and this was the first time I had an unexpected surprise.

Secret spots of Barcelona

I was lucky enough to spend four months of my life in Barcelona. During my first weeks there, I visited all the must – see sights that everybody knows (such as Sagrada Familia, Barceloneta, La Rambla and others), and after that, I had plenty of time to discover the hidden gems of this beautiful city. Believe me, there is plenty of them! And in this article, I am going to tell you about my absolute favorites. The good thing about Barcelona is that it has an excellent public transport system so there is no need on spending your money on taxis. You can choose between buses and metro, but I would highly recommend the latter. Meanwhile you can catch a glimpse of the city while using buses, metro is much more effective time wise. And it can get you to all the places on my list (or at least very close to them). 1.El Gato del Raval (the Raval cat) It is easy to guess how this work of art got its name. Simply because this is a cat statue, situated in El Raval neighborhood. More precisely, a huge cat statue, whose body reminds me of a beaver. And guess what, it is perfect for taking pictures. Selfie with a giant cat statue? Yes, please! 2.Bunkers del Carmel Barcelona is an amazing city and it has some fantastic viewpoints that allow you to admire its beauty from above. One of the less known ones is called Bunkers del Carmel, also known under the name Turo de la Rovira. Long story short, this is by far the most breathtaking viewpoint I have ever been to. Luckily, it has not been discovered by tourists yet (and I hope this article will not change that!), but I heard some people talking that you will probably have to pay admission in the near future. Of course, locals do not like the invasion of tourists in this particular spot, and graffiti, such as ‘tourist go home’ are very common in this neighborhood. What makes this viewpoint so awesome is that it offers you a 360 – degree view of the city below you. And you can get there by bus! 3.Nevermind 1 and 2 Two amazing bars close to each other, named after the Nirvana album, with indoor skating rinks. And free popcorn with every drink after 7PM. It is quite hard to find them though if you do not know what you are looking for, so your best bet is to have a local with you. Both bars can get pretty packed later at night, but actually the crowd makes a great atmosphere. And they play great music in both of them as well. 4.Barri Gotic (Gothic quarter) and the Gothic cathedral I love wandering around big cities, and possibly getting lost, because in my case, this is how I have discovered some amazing places. Gothic quarter in Barcelona is one of those places – breathtaking architecture and narrow streets, calling you to explore them. Most people visit the Gothic cathedral (which is beautiful) and think they have seen everything worth seeing in the Gothic quarter. But when you are there, do yourself a favor and walk behind the cathedral into the labyrinth of Gothic streets. You will not be disappointed. 5.El Rabipelao Everybody loves great drinks. And everybody loves low prices. But the problem is that you can rarely find great cocktails in Barcelona that will not empty your wallet. El Rabipelao is one of those places where you can actually question the quality of the drinks when you look at the price list, because most cocktails cost between 3 and 11 Euros. Situated just a short stroll off La Rambla, this bar will not disappoint you. The drinks that I suggest you to try: mango mojito, blue margarita and la guarapita. If you are there between 8PM and 11PM, you will get 1 Euro off every cocktail. Cheers! And the best part – you can choose the rum for your mojito! They have a great selection, so you can feel like you are on vacation in the Caribbean, not in Barcelona. 6.Graffiti Barcelona has some amazing artists, whose artworks you can find and admire not in galleries, but on walls. I am talking about street art. You can find some pretty amazing works all around Barcelona, some of my favourites are located close to Placa d’Espanya, Barceloneta and around Gracia. 7.Magic fountain of Montjuic This attraction is actually quite famous and it can be crowded in the summer months, but it is absolutely worth the visit. During the day, this place is just an ordinary fountain, but at night, it becomes a light – water – music show. Almost like Bellagio in Las Vegas. But better. It is awesome how squirting water makes the impression like it is dancing to the music. And it looks great on pictures too. 8.Gracia, area around Park Guell Of course Park Guell is a must see attraction, but the way to it is almost as spectacular as the park itself. Known as the artistic neighborhood of Barcelona, Gracia is home to several small bars, bakeries, street artists and more. And the first thing you will notice if you compare Gracia to other Barcelona neighborhoods, is how different the architecture is in this part of the city. You will just want to walk around and take a look at every single street there. But here is the catch – Gracia is built on a pretty steep hill, and when you will make it to the top, you will not regret eating all this delicious food earlier because you burnt all the calories on the way up. A part of the hill is actually so steep that they built escalators there. There are many more great places in Barcelona, too many to list them all. I hope you will have a chance to see at least some from my list, and discover

Seeing Seville

Let’s face it, Spain is a sought after destinations for every type of traveler. The north offers a haven for the outdoorsy adventurers, while the beaches of Barcelona, Ibiza, and Cadíz await the beach bums who needs a few days away from reality. And we cannot forget about the history buffs, who will not be disappointed in small towns like Mérida, where you can take a walk through ancient Roman amphitheaters, or the bustling city of Barcelona with it’s own hidden gems around every corner. What a lot of people miss is the amazing city that is Seville.

Cadaqués: The magical city

Cadaqués is one of the most famous cities in Catalonia, but maybe not everybody knows why. This is a mediterranean city in the north of Spain, almost in the border with France. It’s located in the ‘Costa Brava’ between Roses and Port de la Selva, just two hours far away from Barcelona by car. Furthermore, Cadaqués is one of the cities that belong to the ‘Camí de Ronda‘, the way that follows all the cities next to cost from all over the Costa Brava.
