Travelguide: 5 tips when traveling to Barcelona, Spain

travel guide post

Hi readers,

As I promised when sharing my photolog from Barcelona, I’m giving you 5 useful tips when you’re planning your trip to Barcelona. Things you should be prepared for, must sees, good places to eat and more. Are you one of the lucky bastards that gets to visit this city of Spain? Then this post will be your gift from heaven! 😉

First I’ll share with you some information about Barcelona city. Barcelona is the biggest city of the Catalonia area, with a large population of 1.6 million people. The city has a huge cultural heritage, which makes it very attractive for tourists. It is located on the northeast coast, facing the Mediterranean Sea. As for the climate, Barcelona has mild winters and hot summers. This summer was exceptional with very high temperatures.

The most famous places to visit in Barcelona is the FC Barcelona Camp Nou Olympic Stadium, the Sagrada Familia church, Las Ramblas street, Barcelona Port & Maremagnum Shopping center and Park Guell.

Barcelona is a great destination for traveling when looking for a mix between the beach, the city and cultural events and activities. For those who are looking for more than sun, sea and sand, Barcelona will be a good choice for a trip, where you can have so much more.

1° Get your tickets beforehand

Because of the popularity of the touristic events, it’s absolutely important that you buy your tickets online beforehand. Otherwise it could happen that you won’t be able to visit because there’s no place. We did that for the Sagrada Familia and Camp Nou. You can choose the day and hour, so you can make your personal travel plan when you do which activity. Print the tickets and take them with you. That way you’re well prepared.

2° Watch your things

Especially on Las Ramblas, it is very important to be aware of thieves. You need to watch your things constantly when you’re in a crowded touristic place. There are many horror stories on the internet which confirm that thieves in Barcelona work in groups, and even children and old men can’t be trusted. You should consider wearing a handbag that closes with a zipper and don’t attract attention in any way. Even we almost got robbed if my boyfriend wasn’t alert.

3° Learn basic Spanish

I know, it sounds a bit ridiculous just for a trip, but besides the touristic places in Barcelona a lot of Spanish people don’t understand English. It’s very useful to learn a couple of words, just in case you’re going to a more distant place. We are planning on learning Spanish too for our next trip. Also, we noticed that Spanish people really appreciate it when you adjust to their language. Think about it when you have a tourist in your country who makes the effort to speak the language, it’s always nice and polite.

4° Hotel & food recommendations

44977475We were staying at the Barcelona Airport Hotel and we ate frequently in their local restaurant, La Sal Marina. The food was very nice. I tried their paella, which was really on point. The hotel itself was very clean and modern. The service was OK, but one time we demanded the shuttle bus from the hotel to Las Ramblas and back, and the shuttle bus didn’t appear for our way back. It was disappointing because when we called the hotel, the employee just told us to take the metro instead of looking for a more service minded solution. It wasn’t all that bad, because that way we learned how and where to take the train which was convenient for us the day after. The pool of the hotel was also nice, but it looked way bigger on the pictures online. Our room was remarkable, it was what you expect from a four star hotel room. Most of the staff was heartwarmingly kind. Anyway, everything considered our stay was very good. We would definitely visit the hotel again when going there.

97_6A nice place to eat besides the hotel is Kurz & Gut the at the Maremagnum Shopping Center. If you’re a fastfood lover like us you’ll definitely love it. They have a dish with Spanish sausages, fries and eggs – it’s delicious! The waitresses there are also very friendly. You don’t need to wait long for your food at all and you have this amazing view over Port Barcelona.

 

5° Where to go when you are at Las Ramblas

Unfortunately, when we went to Las Ramblas we were kind of disappointed. It’s a lovely place, don’t understand me wrong. But it’s just a giant street of the same things: touristic markets, restaurants and dressed up people as an attraction. What we didn’t know, and we got to know that when we came back from our trip, is that the streets which cross the Ramblas road, are the most interesting. They have boutiques and are less crowded (and also less dangerous). It’s on our bucket list for the next time.

OOTD Fashion Mash-Up: About That Caramel Latte & That Red Jacket…

Dag lieve lezers,

Wat fijn dat jullie mijn blog (nogmaals) bezoeken! Ik wil eerst en vooral een momentje inlassen in deze blogpost waarin ik jullie wens te bedanken voor alle support, likes en follows. Dat betekent echt wel veel voor mij en geeft een extra boost om nog meer content te maken! En feel free to share ideas ❤

About that caramel latte… Wel ik heb de meest heerlijke caramel latte macchiato gedronken afgelopen donderdag. Beter dan Starbucks (seriously). Place to be is 5 min to Paris, in de Kloosterstraat in Antwerpen. Ze hebben ook een super gezellige achtertuin. Ben je net zo’n übercrazy koffiefanaat als ik? Dan moet je hier zeker eens passeren want het is zo’n leuk adresje.

Natuurlijk heb ik donderdag meer uitgespookt dan alleen maar latte’s te drinken. Gelukkig maar, anders zou deze post maar snel aan zijn einde komen 😀 Ik vond tevens een prachtige rode trench coat in de Lola & Liza aan een absolute knalprijs. Hij kwam van € 69,95 naar € 21! Maar liefst 70% korting. Dit kon ik echt niet aan me laten voorbijgaan, wetende dat ik toch al een geringe tijd op zoek ben naar dé trenchcoat (lees: Burberry look blijft een topper). Rood vind ik zo’n fantastische, vrouwelijke accentkleur en ik bedacht me dat deze perfect past bij de tas die ik voor mijn verjaardag voor ogen heb 😉 (binnenkort verklap ik meer!). Ik was me er in feite niet echt van bewust dat sommige ketens nog solden geven, maar blijkbaar is dat wel het geval. Het enige wat ik hoefde te doen om de korting te krijgen was nog een tweede artikel erbij nemen, dus koos ik voor een paar leuke oorbelletjes.

Deze blogpost zou geen “OOTD Mashup” heten als er geen outfits bij te pas zouden komen! Hier is wat ik aanhad op de fameuze Caramel Latte Dag:

Foto 9-08-18 12 39 02Foto 9-08-18 12 39 33Foto 9-08-18 12 39 57

What I was wearing:
Cardigan – Lefties (winkel in Spanje, Barcelona)
T-shirt – Inside (winkel in Spanje, Barcelona)
Jeans – American Eagle Outfitters (once sponsored gift for my blog)
Sneakers – vintage Adidas
Scarf – Longchamp
Bag – Longchamp
Watch – Gift from Yves Rocher

Het idee was een casual girl-next-door look. Qua make-up beperkte ik me ook tot een subtiele look. De truc van een girl-next-door look is namelijk eruitzien alsof je een natural beauty bent, het bekende no-makeup effect terwijl je in feite toch wel wat schmink op hebt. De key items van deze look? Een dun laagje mascara, een effen huid met compact poeder en bronze finishing (girl-next-doors zijn altijd bruin), een subtiele eye-liner, nude oogschaduw, een naturel ogend wenkbrauwpotlood en lipgloss.

Privacy for Bloggers: Are you aware of what you share?

11privacy

Hi folks,

With the whole media buzz around privacy policies we become more aware of what companies can do with our information. These days customer data allows companies to contact people in many different ways. It’s now almost impossible to do a purchase without giving your name and email address for commercial purposes. Facebook is by far the most powerful tool for companies to get information about everyone worldwide (age, gender, work, email, phone number, interests, …), especially since the increasing popularity of online shopping. But what’s the deal with bloggers?

Before the whole buzz I wasn’t really thinking about what I share online, but after receiving loads of spam in my mailbox with policy agreements I asked myself the question: how much information should I share with my readers? There should be a limit of course, and it’s absolutely important to protect yourself, because information equals power. Especially when sharing personal life issues, bloggers should be aware of the visibility and accessability of that information.

Just some random facts to make you think:

  • An employee who said to his boss he’s sick and couldn’t go to work, shared his fun activities of that day on his Facebook because he faked the fact he was ill. His boss saw the message and fired him right away.
  • You’re sharing pictures of your traveling on your blog, while your neighbour is trying to break into your house after he’s seen that you’re gone for a week to another country.
  • Your best friend shares her location all the time on her Instagram and Snapchat. That way her ex boyfriend has the potential of stalking her en knowing where she is in one blink.

Sounds all cruel right? These are worst case scenarios of what people can do when they have specific information. That’s why you need to be aware of what you share on your blog and social media.

images-cache-images-cms-201304050959-privacy-card-3x2-1-jpeg-c897x341-ad18-9-r950x360

I have some tips for you so you can make sure you won’t share too much.

  1. Things you shouldn’t share: your home address, your full name, your bank/identity information, passwords, phone numbers and your birth date or place. Sounds logical, but people with bad intentions can link things easily and sometimes you share this private information without knowing.
  2. When you’re planning to go on holiday, only share pictures of your trip when you don’t leave your house alone.
  3. Don’t forget that what you write, everyone – and then I literally mean: EVERYONE – can read it. Your collegues, your boss, your friends, your family, your neighbour, the old lady from the block and even that creep from across the street. So: if you wouldn’t share the information in a conference with all these people, then simply don’t publish it.
  4. Be aware of the non removable history of the internet: what you publish stays online for ages even when you delete it (people share all the time). So be careful with political opinions or religious preferences. This information is sensitive and to be rude, it really isn’t anybody’s business.
  5. Don’t share any photos, names or information about people you know without their permission. For instance, when I share a photograph with my boyfriend, I ask his permission if it’s okay if I publish it on my blog. Never ever give personal information of other people.
  6. Be careful with locations. These days when you share something, it’s almost natural to share the location too because it’s also a way to find new pictures and new accounts. But don’t be to specific. You can just type the name of the city, but never share a full address.

To finish this post, I’d also like to share a new privacy law for bloggers called the AVG/GDPR. Since we also possess data of our visitors, for instance when subscribing to a newsletter, it is important that we guarantee their data protection as well. For my blog, you don’t need to worry, my blog’s secured and the information stays on my platform – only I have exclusive access to it.

How do you deal with the new privacy laws as a blogger? Do you have some tips as well? Share them in the comment box.
