Primavera this week innit. Probably been a few threads like this. Never been. I get Friday to explore and I should...?
Can paixano, cat bar cat.
See - beach, Parc de la Ciutadella, and just admire anywhere and everywhere you can go on foot.
Gotta go to Sagrada Familia.
up to Montjuic is good, you can then have a wander around the olympic stadium.
You had me at Cat. (Why is is double-recommended?)
think that's near a military museum. The museum itself is dull but an excellent view to be had. I remember that there's a bar with an archery gallery at the back. I've no idea where it was or its name. Worth Googling if you fancy drunken archery.
hug them like you've never hugged anyone in your life
Obviously after my wallet but if I was less aware I might have thought I'd got lucky.
I think 4 of my friends got stuff nicked off them last year. (ok one of them fell asleep on the beach and woke up with nothing)
That reminds me, need to get my phone insured.
this was coming off the tube onto Las Ramblas, pulling along a wheely suitcase looking lost trying to read a map to get our bearings (so looking as touristy as possible basically), some shifty character was eyeing us up in a really obvious way. Apart from that all was good, although I have heard it is bad for pickpockets there. The worst I got ripped off was being sold a rose outside a cafe. I had heard him selling them to people for 2 Euro - not an issue. I relented and he said "4 Euro". I wasn't in a position to argue as my girlfriend would see me as a tightass if I haggled, so I paid up. After that we agreed no more roses, we just snapped "no" at any of these people and they moved on. Trying to be very British and nice to them doesn't work.
Nicked a purse in plain view, the girl screamed at the top of her voice, everyone saw the pickpocket and people descended on him from every direction, they caught him and gave him a pummeling.
go to the beach, tapies museum, avoid the nevermind bar.
Is there a decent aquarium at the zoo? and leopards?
just off Las Ramblas. Just amazing stuff in there, there is a tapas and cava place there also which looked good.
go to mcdonalds
shag a prossie
out of the four of us who went a few years back 3 of us got mugged / pickpocketed. The police do absolutely nothing about it.
Whilst there is apparently a lot of pickpocketing etc, it isn't a foregone conclusion that you'll suffer it. I've been four times now and neither i nor anyone i've ever been with has had a single problem.
It's my 13th time here and I haven't had anything nicked *yet
Maybe I look too poor or something.
certainly the best tapas i've ever had.
or if its cold, inside jacket pocket and zip it up.
ME JEANS JOCKETS ARE PRETTY TIOGHT AND I CAN FEEL MY PHONE AGAINST MY LEG
of course you're gonna get your wallet nicked if it's hanging outta your back pocket, jfc
