Travel Blogs from Barcelona
Barcelona. My first impression: noisy, large boulevards, beautiful imposing buildings, traffic, lots and lots of tourists.
Not that good of a first impression, but then, I do not really like big cities, not at first.
I did the Gaudi tour: the Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi fountain, the Pedrera house...Impressive. Sometimes funny! Too …
... we walk, we see, we take pictures...what a life!! :) We are really enjoying the sightseeing, getting lost, and seeing the culture.
Adios Barcelona! We both enjoyed our time, but really liked Porto if we had to choose between the two. Onward to Poland!!

TravelPod Member ReviewsPlaza Catalunya Hostel Barcelona
it was really ok, except maybe a little remark about the bathrooms. Clean, and working, but needed some fixing here and there. One of them was poorly ventilated. For the rest, I loved the place. Very well situated.
