Welcome to Homage to BCN

Homage To Catalonia, George Orwell

George Orwell’s famous book

It feels great to finally get this site up and running. This project has been in the back of my mind ever since I decided to move to Barcelona. And having been here for 5 months now I have finally ‘cut the ribbon’, so to speak.

It’s all in the title

I have no idea how this site is going to develop. That’s the interesting part. But I’ll write about what I experience and what the city has to offer and see where it takes us. It’s about discovering Barcelona. And hopefully meeting some of the people that live here.

And the title? Well that’s my nod to George Orwell and his book, Homage to Catalonia, which I’ve just finished reading. Check it out! It’s a fascinating account that’s even more poignant when you live here.

And no, before you ask, I haven’t started Spanish lessons yet. But rest assured when I do I shall let you know how spectacularly I fail.
