  Spending time in Barcelona is an exhilarating experience. The city is a culture lover’s dream, offering countless unique experiences under the Mediterranean sun.

The Secret Guide To Barcelona

Monday, October 3, 2011

There is something about Barcelona that brings out the intrepid adventurer in travelers. Maybe it’s the long narrow passages that seem to disappear around dark corners that arouses the explorer in all of us to want to push further into the unknown. I have always felt the urge to walk and discover Barcelona on foot, pushing […]

Barcelona Arenas: From Bullring To Cash Cow

Monday, August 29, 2011

The Arenas Bullring, Barcelona’s iconic structure, once again felt the roar of the crowd and the tremble of footsteps upon its historic sands this year. However, no bull or matador was present. The bullring has been officially reborn as an entertainment complex. Arenas now houses 115 shops, a cinema and Barcelona’s brand new rock museum, Musel del […]

Amazing Barcelona Timelapse [Video]

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Xavier Gill — who apparently met Woody Allen sometime recently as evidenced by his profile picture on Vimeo — brings us this epic timelapse video from one of our favorite cities in the world, Barcelona.

I’m Not Sad To See Bullfighting Go In Spain

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Allow me to first clarify that I am not a radical animal rights activist. The idea of chucking red paint on a fur coat is not only unappealing and a destruction of personal property but, heck, plain old impolite. Hyper-radical political movements, while they sometimes achieve change, usually result in repulsion rather than legislation. Take PETA (People […]

Sidetracked In The Pyrenees

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Shifting into fourth gear I started to wonder if the world was coming to an end. The ray of sunshine shadowing my car had gone, suddenly replaced by a large black cloud that loomed almost directly over head. A shot of lightning streaked across the horizon followed by an earth-shattering boom. The heavens broke and rain clattered […]

Mercat de Santa Caterina: Barcelona’s Best Untouristy Market

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

As anyone who has visited La Boqueria knows, the famed market in Barecelona located just off Las Ramblas is not just one of the city’s most well-known destinations, but also one of its most touristy. Sure, if you get there around 5 a.m. before the visitors wake up, you’ll likely be the only non-Spainard wadering […]

Images Of Barcelona

Monday, May 2, 2011

Barcelona is probably better suited than most cities in the world to be described in images rather than words. Save for some technology that could transport the smells of an early-morning market or send the rays of warmth one experiences sipping sangria in a sunny plaza in the late afternoon, the iconic images of Gaudí […]

Barcelona Food: Worth Waiting Up Late To Eat

Friday, March 18, 2011

Is it me or do you notice how there seems to be an onslaught of articles published about a destination you’re traveling to just before you go? I understand, this is completely unscientific, irrational, and probably a tad ego-centric to think this, but I swear, there are some sort of travel writing gurus in the […]
