Barcelona Metro iPhone App
Apart from the Google Maps app on the iPhone which I use daily to find my way around (but isn’t specific to Barcelona obviously) the app I use the most is Metro de Barcelona from Presselite.
As you can probably guess, this Barcelona Metro iPhone app helps you plan your route when travelling on the Barcelona Metro. I could explain to you how it works but the Presselite website says it just fine.
Barcelona Metro iPhone app features include:
- Latest official map of Metro de Barcelona (2009). Landscape and portrait modes are available.
- Detailed map of all lines in Barcelona (Línea 1, Línea 2, Línea 3, Línea 4, Línea 5, Línea 6, Línea 7, Línea 8, Línea 11, S1, S2, S33, S4, S5, S55, S8, R1, R2, R2 Nord, R2 Sud, R3, R4, R5, R6, R7, T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6). Read the rest of this article…
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.
