7 lucky travellers, 7 totally different Barcelona experiences.
Which one would you like to relive, and who would you take with you?
I’m always fascinated to hear about other people’s experiences of Barcelona. I’ve lived here on and off for years now and know the city well, but I never fail to discover something new by talking to other travellers and locals.
With that in mind, I was excited to hear about ebookers’ recent competition, where they sent four lucky travel bloggers and three competition winners – Sue from the UK, Tiia from Finland and Andrea from Switzerland – to explore the city.
And as if that wasn’t enough to make you seethe with envy, they were also allowed to invite a +1 of their choice!
With travellers ranging from friends and couples to father and daughter adventurers, I knew following their trips would give me a new perspective on the Catalan capital of cool.
Here are a few highlights from their trips!
Sue Stoddart’s Luxury & Romance Barcelona
Sue visited Barcelona with a mission to explore more of architect Antoni Gaudi’s Modernist masterpieces with her husband Adam.
By the sounds of it, they enjoyed a double dose of luxury during their stay. I was particularly interested to hear about their rather delicious find at Gaudi’s famous La Pedrera building.

Jenni Rotonen’s Foodie Barcelona
Jenni travelled to Barcelona with her friend Lisa and the two dived straight into local foodie spots across the city.
I very much like the sound of the little Vietnamese restaurant they found, as well as the cute cafe where Jenni claims she had the best breakfast of her life.

Martin restaurant Family-Friendly Barcelona
Martin travelled to Barcelona with the simple objective of creating new and lasting memories with his 6-year-old daughter.
It sounds like they had tons of fun in the sun, and the local boat company he sniffed out sounds like the perfect way to set sail across Barcelona’s Mediterranean waters.

Stuart Holdsworth’s Street Art Barcelona
Stuart is a UK Street Art blogger so he was keen to explore Barcelona’s famous graffiti walls. Travelling alone, he was free to wander and get lost in the Gothic quarter to his heart’s content.
His fantastic video also shows other areas throughout the city and showcases some of the hottest street artists in town.

Daniel Ravel Ellison’s Adventurous Barcelona
Ever the adventurer, Daniel travelled solo and with the mission of getting off Barcelona’s tourist trail.
Finding peace and tranquility in the mountains that border Barcelona from behind, it looks like Daniel found more than a few new beauty spots that I’d love to get to know.

Andréa Di Lenardo’s Culture & Romance Barcelona
Andréa flew to Barcelona with his girlfriend in search of history, culture and romance.
Judging by the pictures of the couple enjoying castles, markets and ancient churches, it looks like it was a success.

Tiia Öhman’s Film Location Barcelona
Tiia runs a movie travel blog and went to Barcelona with her mum in search of famous film locations and a dash of culture at local museums and historical sites.
There’s definitely something very ‘Woody Allen’ about her photos!
