Sophie’s Perfect Day in Barcelona

JC (Jean-Claude)

JC (aka Jean-Claude, when he’s naughty)

“Well, my perfect day would start by waking up slowly – I’m normally woken up by my cat, JC, (stands for Jean-Claude. Not Jesus Christ) treading on my head (which I don’t really mind). From my bed all I can see is blue sky and lovely verdant tree tops which is very relaxing. I’d then have breakfast sitting on the terrace in the sun. Fortunately I have a big terrace so it’s a great way to start the day. Read the rest of this article…

Le Cool Barcelona

Le Cool - A Weird and Wonderful Guide to Barcelona

A Weird and Wonderful Guide to Barcelona

So as I mentioned in a previous post, BCN Days was slightly inspired by the interviews each week in the Le Cool London email newsletters. I found out about Le Cool whilst looking for city guides. They produce guide books for Amsterdam, Barcelona, Lisbon, London and Madrid. But their weekly email newsletters are available for many more cities – Barcelona, Dublin, Madrid, Lisbon, London, Istanbul, Moscow, Budapest, Paris and Vienna. Read the rest of this article…

Famous Catalans (and their streets): Enric Granados

Ok, so the other day I was walking up Carrer d’Enric Granados on my way to Non Solo Pizza and I got to wondering who is this Granados dude.

I’ve always been interested in street names and where they come from especially when it’s so obviously someone’s name. Read the rest of this article…

Joe’s Perfect Day in Barcelona

“The perfect day begins with waking early. I’m lucky enough to live a stone’s throw from the beach (Barceloneta). I leave the house and wander down to the beach, seagulls whirling raucously around above my head. This is a magical time of the day when the city seems to have been reclaimed by wild creatures.

What’s this ‘BCN Days’ section?

BCN DaysThis blog is all about discovering Barcelona. And the best way to discover a city is to ask the people who live in it what they like to do and where they like to go. BCN Days came from this. I wanted people I met to get involved and share their favourite things about this city.

These ‘days’ are not necessarily ones that have actually happened. But more an amalgamation of the things they like to do and the experiences they’ve had. It would be their ideal day if they ever had the time. Maybe after thinking about it they will try to find the time. Read the rest of this article…

Non Solo Pizza – not even pizza!

Non Solo Pizza

Non Solo Pizza, Carrer d’Enric Granados 110

I was taken to Non Solo Pizza not long ago. Now as far as I’m aware this means ‘Not Only Pizza’ which would be fine if they did pizza and other stuff. But they don’t. They just do the other stuff. For pizza you need to go next door to Solo Pizza which does make sense.

But that’s ok, because the other stuff is worthy enough not to be put on the same menu as pizza. Although I am told the pizzas at Solo Pizza are some of the best in Barcelona. A claim I’m yet to validate.

So what did we have? Well as my fellow diner has a stomach like the tardis (I don’t think she’ll mind this, as long as it’s small on the outside eh?) we ordered plenty. Read the rest of this article…

Barcelona Metro iPhone App

Barcelona Metro iPhone App

Barcelona Metro iPhone App

Apart from the Google Maps app on the iPhone which I use daily to find my way around (but isn’t specific to Barcelona obviously) the app I use the most is Metro de Barcelona from Presselite.

As you can probably guess, this Barcelona Metro iPhone app helps you plan your route when travelling on the Barcelona Metro. I could explain to you how it works but the Presselite website says it just fine.
