El Jardí bar – Oasis in the center of Gotico

We all love the Barrio Gotico - FACT!

This time we want to share an amazing spot where you cool down in the shades of the trees and enjoy  having a cerveza: El Jardí Bar Beautiful small streets, ancient building, nice little squares and many many things to see and do. But well.. being honest, sometimes it can get quite stressfull there, first of all when you are not used to all the hustle and bustle of a big city. Escaping is not that easy.. the chiringuitos at the beach seem way too far away and all the terraces on the squares are packed as well. But.. we found an amazing spot for you - directly in the old town of the city - where you can cool down in the shades of the trees and enjoy some minutes of (relatively) silence while having a cerveza.

The main purpose is to have fun and forget all the trouble, and the differences between religions, origins, young and old, rich and poor are blurred for one day. On this day, all people are equal.

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...)
