About me

Artistic and creative Swede showing you around my favourite city, with or without a skateboard under my feet :) I know a lot about Barcelona, I have lived here for many years and I love the way culture and art always seem to be present wherever I go. Ciutat Vella is my favourite are and where I spend most of my time, the contrast between old areas and new futuristic ones makes it a really interesting city to visit and to live in. I am interested in arts, history, language and culture and I am sure I can make sure the visitors will see and experience places and events that you typically won't find in the tourist brochures.

I'm Jess from London, my dad is from Barcelona and Ive felt like a local since I first set down roots here in 2004. My life is a mix of enjoying the great climate, going to beaches, parks and local excursions, trying to keep fit through yoga and paddle board and also making use of Barcelonas diverse night life. I love budget local restaurants and I know some great little hip bars :)

Brian has lived in Barcelona for almost half a decade, and his love of the city goes back to a trip taken with the family in 1994, two years after the incredibly successful staging of the Olympic Games and also FC Barcelona's victory in the European Cup. Since moving here, however, Brian has branched out his interests - and as an adult, appreciates the bar and cuisine aspect of the city, as well as other aspects of city life, such as theatre, historical readings and hiking walks in the hills of Collserola.

I moved to Barcelona 17 years ago and have been here ever since! I live on the outskirts of Barcelona in a residential area so consider myself well and truly integrated into the spanish lifestyle and way of living. I love the small and compact city that is Barcelona, I know all the main areas, and I am forever exploring and checking out places to visit and to eat. So lets meet and go and explore the beach and port area, the Gothic area, the main shopping areas, go and see the Gaudi Sagrada Familia and other masterpieces, check out FC Barcelona Nou Camp, .... the choice is yours!
