This is Meritxell Garcia, hello from sunny Barcelona. I have always worked in the hospitality industry and I love it, and travel is a big part of my life! My experience and my professional background as well as my love for my city Barcelona will help you visit the area as a local and take the most of it. I am a local expert for Barcelona and Catalonia, discover them through local eyes!

I travel together with my other half, Roger, he is the techy side of things and the photographer and I am the voice and the writing hands of the blog. We are travellers, we like to visit other countries and learn from different cultures, I think that in every travel you take with you some piece of it. We always like to live the places we visit as a local, you will see our latest travels in the blog too: Brazil, Thailand, Indonesia etc…


I love Gaudí, I can deny I am a foodie and I love to try new gastronomic experiences as much as I can, if you want to find me you will probably see me trying a new tapa or in a newly opened restaurant in the city. I enjoy history and legends, art and food tours and I am always glad to discover new places.


I am very transparent with this, you cannot buy love, this is what I think and this is my principle. When I read a blog I want to know what this person thinks and so I do when I write, to show what my personal opinion is everywhere I go. All posts you will read in here are my personal opinion, even if commissioned by a third party, I am honest and clear about the experience I am describing.
