More than the food, the drinks, or the location, the best thing about Barcelona was the lifestyle. But the food and drinks were also awesome!

Heather and I go in depth today on all the restaurants we visited (quite a lot), the gelato we didn’t get to eat and the best bars we found on our trip.

And while there’s not much touristy things to do in Barcelona (seriously, go eat), we did find some pretty awesome parts of town to visit, and of course, if you go when it’s warm there’s alway the beach!!

Some of the restaurants we mention in this episode require advance booking, perhaps even weeks in advance based on the time of year you’ll be traveling. The Fork and Open Table are two great ways to book restaurants in advance, perhaps before you even get to Barcelona!

Have you ever been to Spain? What was your favorite city? Let us know for our next trip @PackOfPeanuts!!

    We love Barcelona and I agree it’s such a liveable city. You can go again and again, walk the neighborhoods and discover new things. Some of our favorite spots you didn’t mention were the Boqueria Market (delicious food or just great for photos), the nighttime light and water show at Montjuic (may not have been happening in January, but super cool!) and the Picasso museum. We can highly recommend the Runner Beans free Gaudi walking tour…even our 9-year-old loved it! Can’t wait to go back! Thanks for the great food and drink recs. And we will definitely check out the neighborhood you stayed in. Thanks Trav and Heather!

      @Suzanne – Awesome suggestions, and yeah, not going to a walking tour was our biggest “mistake” of the whole trip!
