Foodie in Barcelona
Foodie in Barcelona is a blog with weekly posts, exploring one address at a time. The posts are written in the tone I would use with a friend, sharing quirky details and giving tips on everything from what to order to make sure to take a trip to the washrooms if they are particularly special. I pick places on merit with a special interest in those that are small and independent and trying to do something different, bonus points if they are working with food in season and KM 0. .

Homage to BCN is a blog about discovering all aspects of Barcelona. The history, culture, and things to do and see. I also get other people to write about their ‘perfect day in Barcelona’ to share what they love about the city too!
Eat in Barcelona
Justine Ancheta runs Latitude 41, which gives no-fluff advice for discovering Barcelona and other parts of Spain. A California native and expat since 2008, Justine started the blog in 2013 as a way of sharing an unexpressed romance with the city. Because she’s raised 3 kids there, she also imparts helpful travel tips for families visiting Barcelona. Other than creating useful guides, she also shares cultural quirks and weird Catalan traditions like the caga tió, the Christmas pooping log. Her biggest travel tip for tourists: don’t get robbed! With a touch of humour and fun insight, this blog is a fun place to hang out.
The Barcelona Diaries
The Barcelona Diaries is a project where I celebrate and share everything I love about this city. I want to encourage people in Barcelona to get to know it better and discover new places, as well as help visitors, experience the city in a way only a local can show them. It’s my collection of special moments in Barcelona!
The Travel Hack
Mantel a Cuadros
Not Home Syndrome
I set up Driftwood Journals after moving to Barcelona in 2009 and falling head over heels in love with the food, people and culture. I admire the way Catalans live their lives and am fascinated by their traditions and cultural quirks. So many travellers think of Barcelona as being another Spanish city of « sun, sea and sangria », but there’s so much more to it than that. With over 2,000 years of history to explore and an immensely independent sense of cultural identity, the Catalan capital really does it have all. I’m passionate about meaningful and responsible travel and, through my writing and photography, try to encourage visitors to dig deeper, to celebrate and preserve Barcelona’s unique charms while connecting with local people and their way of life.
