In September me and my long suffering other half took a well earned holiday to Spain, our destination, the wonderful city of Barcelona! I strongly suggest that you visit Catelonia's capital city. There is a great vibe to this city and we enjoyed it so much, we are going back again this year.
We decided to take in some late summer sun in Barcelona. We got a great deal on hotels and flights in November 2012; also my other half has never been to Spain, ever!
This is a person who regularly traveled the world with work and has lived and worked in Germany before, yet never visited Spain! I on the other hand, have had the pleasure of visiting Spain on a number of occasions, including Barcelona, so for once I was acting as tour guide.
In a nutshell we had a great time, I even managed to come back a slightly darker shade of pasty white!
We had long lunches, and even longer dinners late into the evening in typical Spanish style, i.e. lots of beer and finishing at around 1am, plenty of cafe solo and cafe con letche.
One thing that hasn’t changed in my many visits is the very normal way in which people in the Mediterranean sit in a cafe or bar and smoke like chimneys! When I smoked, I was one of them.
