The government/city need to stop this happening as Barcelona is becoming nightmarish for its residents.

Or any dirty streets at all, really.

I don’t know why people move there anymore!

My neighborhood doesn’t have a single park. You can also use Cabify up there, and presumably Uber as well.

Try living in Northern Europe and you will understand the meaning of cold winters and chills to the bone! The zipper is on the side facing my back.

Sure, everyone knows that guy who’s been here ten years and doesn’t speak more than a few words of Spanish. Barcelona is one of Europe’s most densely populated cities, with few open spaces. It costs 18€ for an adult to get in, which seems grossly over-inflated when you consider the meager range of specimens inside. Thanks for this honest post. The architecture. We’ll see.). But I’d also bet most people who actually live in the city don’t spend their weekends going to gawk at Gaudi’s buildings.

“Oh my god, I love Barcelona!” Followed by a frown. Do you get tourists from Spain or international ones? I use a normal handbag every day going to work on the metro, but keep it in front of me with my arm over the opening at all times. You name it, if it’s a scam to part tourists with their possessions, they’re already doing it. And while I was up there, I definitely saw signs, flags and graffiti making reference to the issue. EU gives a chance to its youth to choose a path without having a huge credit by the time they finish college. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. It’s way less disorienting! In shops, restaurants and taxi rides across the city I’ve never once been short changed. Cost of living is low, fortunately, so you can live a lot on a little. Street vendors spread out their wares on the pavement – pirated designer sunglasses and tacky memorabilia - until a heavily-armed police patrol moves them on. I totally agree! Mercat de la Boqueria. Anyway, I’m no expert on beaches.

Europeans don’t act as friendly as Americans, but you can rely on them. I have a small day pack that zips off my main backpack and I was wondering if that would be a good back to use even though it’s on my back.

It’s easy to get lost in the Gothic quarter but then again, that’s part of its appeal. Don’t walk around with a sign on our back saying ‘rob me’. There’s currently construction in the square up the street, the store a few doors down, the apartment building in front of me, and a selection of random other projects going on. . I suppose it depends – a lot – on the neighborhood or the specific bar, but I also had coffee and beer for barely over a euro, which is difficult in any big city. Of course, I haven’t actually lived in Barcelona…. Be vigilant, be aware and if you intend to have a few drinks leave any valuables in the hotel safe so you don’t become a victim whilst your guard is down. Don’t have any preconceptions about what a pickpocket looks like. La Rambla is a business. You will need at least 500 for a decent room in a shared apartment for a month, and a 1000 to live in a small place by yourself.

Just a few months ago it was revealed that that there are over 400 robberies a day in the city – and that’s only the ones that that are officially reported.

I, being from South America, and my friend who spoke no Spanish, of course, shouted “foreigners” from miles away. For more on robberies and theft in Barcelona check out Robbed In Barcelona, a website connected to the popular Facebook page, I Know Someone Who Got Robbed In Barcelona. at me. The police will be a welcome sight for them. To see this page as it is meant to appear, please enable your Javascript! I’m living in BCN since 7 years ago and unfortunately you are right. I’m not sure.

And the quality of life will (probably) compensate your lower salary, at least for a while.

Was gonna be in for a rude awakening. Long story.

I went to a Barcelona police station to report a street theft of my camera and cellphone. A since this humble expat blog makes an effort to give you an idea of what it’s like to actually live in Spain, rather than visit for a weekend, I tried to think of what it’d be like for someone staying a while. I would assume that some of the other  restaurants serving typical Catalonian cuisine are worth visiting as well.

If you’re looking to rent a flat for a longer stay, it can be more expensive than other Spanish cities – but then again, it’s really cheap compared to New York or London. Another important aspect EU vs USA is the education.

“Except it’s really dangerous…”. Like I said earlier, most Madrid vs Barcelona conversations start and end with: well, they’re both great cities, but Barcelona has the beach. The whole thing was a farce and left me with the suspicion that maybe the cops and robbers were working together for their mutual benefit! Get our guidebook- Eat Guides: Barcelona.

Children clearly hate it. Granted, the masses of tourists are mostly focused around a few small points. Sad but true Janice. The very reason for visiting la Boqueria – even as a tourist – will soon cease to exist. And you’ll soon realise that the Boqueria was overpriced and not that amazing anyway. But be careful, many thieves work in groups and are armed with knives, etc. They are not rude. Have fun! It’s made worse, Spanish friends tell me, by the fact that I’m going about the city as a single female, rather than as part of a couple or in a big group. They seem to be working to come up with a solution that works for everyone (I hope!).

Sagrada Familia is a mess of cranes and scaffolding, by the way.

I´d even recommend keeping your bag on your lap in busy bars and restaurants as I found out to my disappointment when my bag was stolen from between my feet in a restaurant.
