I love Barcelona for its vibrant, diverse and creative energy, alongside the balance of lifestyle, living by the sea and mountains and of course its gastronomic culture.
I work as a community builder. I create content to build audiences mainly for start-ups, purpose driven companies, social good and wellness. Moreover, I am an interviewer for start-ups and communities. I create programs, content and empower talent by connecting people to a community.
What is a typical breakfast and where would you go?
Typical breakfast here is pan con tomate (Bread and tomato) or jamon con tostado (Ham and toast), cafe con leche(coffee with milk) and a zumo de naranja (orange juice). My favourite place to go for ambience and good people watching is Bar Pietro in Gracia, near where I live.
Where is your favourite place to grab lunch?
What is the ideal afternoon activity in a city like Barcelona
Biking through the city, swimming in the sea, or having a vermut and listening to some live music during weekends.
Where are the best places for dinner?
In the evening, what is the city like and where do you find yourself?
Usually people are very social and sitting in the squares drinking, talking and playing music, its great for ambience. I love the feel next to the sea so sometimes it’s just nice to sit down and watch people roller blading, skateboarding, scooting and cycling. Another thing I like doing is strolling through Parc Guell.
In a busy city like Barcelona, is there anywhere to chill?
What is there to do for something fun and different?
Catch a train up or down the coast and visit the local beaches like garraf, vilanova, Vilassar de mar, caldes estrac and badalona. You can always take a paddle surf or do some water sports, go out on a boat or go walking in the mountains.
Where is the best area to stay/sleep for young travellers?
El Born, Raval, Gotico, San Antoni, Poble Nou
What season would you recommend visiting?
