Lockers Barcelona – don’t get bothered with your luggage!

luggage

An easy solution for your luggage!

Most of you should know this problem: On the last day of your stay you are standing at 10 or 11 am in front of your hotel or apartment in Barcelona with your suitcases and bags and don't know what to do in the next couple of hours until you have to go to the airport or  train station. Just waiting in a café for the hours passing by is not a good idea - walking around Barcelona with all your luggage trying to make the most of your last hours neither. (more...)

Tibidabo

tibidabo churchA couple of days ago, I was on my way from Cadaqués (nice little village in the North of Catalunya - highly recommended) to Barcelona at night. Getting closer and closer to the city, one of the first things I saw, was the beautifully illuminated church of the Tibidabo - one of the main sights of Barcelona. And I made up my mind that my last time up there was way too long ago, so "Hello Tibidabo - I am coming over next weekend!" :) (more...)

Here is another crazy tradition of Barcelona: The Christmas Day harbour swim Again this year - on Christmas day -  hundreds of brave men (and women) will dive into the freezing sea in Barcelona's port at la Rambla del Mar. Having a swim in the around 13 degrees cold water sounds quite crazy - but it is one of Barcelona's oldest sporting traditions (and also one of the oldest in whole Europe). Every year on the 25th of December a 200 m open water swimming race takes place in the harbour of Barcelona, called "Copa Nadal". christmas_swim_barcelona (more...)

Using the public transportation system in another country or sometimes even just in another city can be quite confusing. Therefore I will give you today a little overview of the very modern and efficient Metro system in Barcelona and I give you a hand on the decision "Which is actually the best ticket to get". metro_barcelonaBut first some general info about the TMB: - The very first Metro line opened on the 30th of December in 1924, called the "Gran Metropolitano de Barcelona" and it ran between Plaza Lesseps and Plaza Catalunya.
