Q & A
What would you have changed?
The only real tourist attraction in Barcelona that I thought was totally worth the time and money was the Sagrada Familia - everything else is skippable in my opinion. Spend more time wandering the streets and popping in and out of every place that looks interesting - Barcelona rewards curiosity.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Two of my friends were pickpocketed on two separate occasions. This is a problem everywhere in Europe, but it seems like the petty thieves in Barcelona are particularly skilled. Be extremely careful, especially in the more crowded, touristy areas.
How was the food?
Gasterea in Gracia, Macchina in Gracia/Plaza Catalunya, Koku Ramen neatr Barceloneta.
The metro is fantastic. Get a 10-20 ride pass and you'll save a ton of time without breaking the bank. There's no need to take a taxi unless you're going home late at night.
