Travel Blogs from Barcelona
I've covered the morning after the Baixada de l'Aliga in my 2010 and 2011 blogs and today was fairly similar. We didn't get up early but we knew we had to pack and we were mainly a little fragile from the excesses of the night/morning before. We went to see the entrance of the musicians by the Passeig Aqueologic and sat in the same bar and I …
Right. You see "The Mary Whitehouse Experience"? That's our inspiration that is. That's where all our jokes come from.
I should explain. It might seem irrelevant but there's a point to this. The high point of the early '90s comedy series referred to above for many was a series of sketches performed by Robert Newman and David Baddiel …
The final day of La Merce 2012 and a chance for James to see Piromusical, which he had missed in 2011.
We were in dawdle mode early on in part because we were too late for a sensilble breakfast and wanted to try a place we'd seen last year for an early lunch and in part because we still had some sleep to catch on. It was a glorious …
When there’s a Correfoc there must be a Piromusical soon after and what is effectively the finale of La Merce is much anticipated. We thought we’d go up to Montjuic to see what the various circuses and other childrens’ activities were like so set off in the direction of Paral.lel, finding a café on the way that put together …
Two nights on the cheap in the Travelodge were followed by three nights of luxury in the recently built and stylish Barcelo Raval Hotel, paid for in part by Tesco Clubcard points - in fact we only put £54 of our own money to it.

We stayed in the barcelo for two night after deciding to stay in Barcelona a few extra nights. This hotel is lovely as far as hotels go, modern, quirky somehow very Barcelona.
The rooms were functional, although I wasn't overly fond of the pink lighting, it didn't bother me that much for a short stay. The rooftop with it's infinity pool is stunning and boast some of the best views over Raval and Barcelona.
The plaza Raval is in front of the hotel, which is a lovely place to eat on a hot evening, alongside more locals than tourists, which makes for a nice change as tourists are everywhere in Barcelona.
We enjoyed staying at this hotel for the 2 nights we were there, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer as I am sure it would become very small quickly. A great stop over hotel with an affordable price tag!
