Returning to Barcelona

I first visited Barcelona back in 2006 (where I well and truly focused on the nightlife) and again a few years ago for a work conference so this time I am keen to be a proper tourist and see everything Barcelona is famous for. Barcelona showcases it’s incredible local delicacies in El Mercado de La Boqueria. La […]

Barcelona

Barcelona is my first stop in Spain and a place I have dreamed of visiting for many years (probably since I watched the 1990 Olympic Games on TV). The thought of sun, tapas, latin music and sangria have always appealed and I was very excited about arriving here. The heat was something I hadn’t anticipated!  We’ve been spent […]
