Barcelona – 10 Locals Tell You Where to Go, What to Eat, and How to Fit In

Barcelona: 10 Locals Tell You Where to Go, What to Eat, and How to Fit InLast 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! Read the rest of this article…

Eat Guides: Barcelona

I’m not normally one for travel guides. Especially city guides that have to accommodate a persons every whim. They are really things that should be consumed beforehand and reduced to a few notes or page photos on your phone. To take the whole thing is far too unwieldy. And who wants to look like a tourist and attract the wrong attention anyway. Especially in Barcelona!

So it was with equal trepidation and interest when I was sent a copy of a new digital format eating guide for Barcelona, simply called Eat Guides: Barcelona.

This was a topic close to my heart – who doesn’t like eating out. And the format was entirely agreeable as it comes as a PDF (or a range of other digital formats). So I can keep it on my phone! Read the rest of this article…
