Ten times in Spain - during my first time here, I never would've guessed that I would return to this country multiple times, let alone ten. But here we are once again - though now as familiar as my own neighbourhood, it never fails to excite or show me something new, each and every time.
Having already seen the main highlights of Barcelona …
Seven hours - it's not very long, but just enough time to transfer between Heathrow and Gatwick, having a bite to eat along the way, and soaking in a little bit of atmospheric London.

Today was another great day in Barcelona. While I did start my morning (and early afternoon) off with a set schedule at Camp Nou, I spent the rest of my day wandering the streets and taking in the culture of Catalunya.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Urquinaona Barcelona
Great location next to a metro stop, and only a 2-minute walk to Placa Catalunya. Extremely varied and generous breakfast by Spanish standards, with excellent coffee, assorted fruit and pastries, cereal, juice (instant), Spanish omelet, and sandwiches.
