on the road again

Well, dear friends, this is my asking for your help! Usually I know most of what I need to know when I go traveling, but this time I’m pretty much clueless. This Thursday my sister and I are going to Barcelona on a trip that SpecSavers were so nice to offer us, because I wasn’t able to go on the Tanzania-trip that I won in the SpecSavers blogger challenge in the summer. So this Thursday we’re traveling to a bit warmer weather and a little break from the real world – and this is where you guys step in: do you have any good tips for what to do, where to shop and what to eat in Barcelona and maybe even tips for trips to make in and outside the city?
