Last summer I was asked to contribute to a guide called ‘Barcelona – 10 Locals Tell You Where to Go, What to Eat, and How to Fit In’.
Well I did. And Gigi Griffis who produced the guide sent me a copy, and then I promptly forgot about it. I came across it on my iPad recently. So I read it. And it’s actually very good.
Gigi interviewed 10 people who live in Barcelona and asked them where their favourite places are in Barcelona, their hidden gems, and any tips they might have for visitors to the city.
It guide includes:
- Great restaurants and bars away from the tourist trail;
- Day trip suggestions outside Barcelona;
- And tips for how to make friends, avoid rip-offs and pick-pockets, and fit in with the local culture.
The guide has had some great reviews!
“Any seasoned traveler will tell you that the real soul of a city is revealed only after befriending a local. This book takes you beyond the tourist traps on the Ramblas and opens up a whole new side of Barcelona…and also shows you the best places to make local friends of your own. Vamos!” – Jason B.
