Hey guys it’s Ash – showing you guys Barcelona with one hand and very likely holding wine in the other.
You wouldn’t know it now but growing up in Vancouver I was never much of a traveler. I took my first trip overseas at 22 and remember having a mini panic attack on the Stansted Express into London watching all those red brick houses fly by.
More than a decade later I find myself in Barcelona. It’s still really weird saying that: I live in Barcelona.
It all started with the intention of getting a bar job in London, doing the working holiday thing, traveling around a bit, and being home in time for Christmas.
That was eleven years ago.
After three years in London and some time in Italy I’m now on year seven in Barcelona.
About This Blog
This was originally intended to be a way of documenting my time here in Barcelona.
Then I realized there are very few expat (immigrant!) run tip blogs for Barcelona – which is surprising because it’s one of the most visited cities in Europe if not the entire world.
My goal here is to put a human face on an informative travel guide. As cheesy as it sounds I want to make you feel like you’ve got a ‘friend’ in Barcelona.
That’s why I want to encourage all readers to ask questions in the comments section. I guarantee a response to any question no matter how stupid 😉
I hope these articles will motivate you guys to come and explore one of the world’s great cities.
Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.
