I love London. It’s my home and I am a Londoner through and through, but the city of Barcelona is in my soul. My mother is Catalán and I spent all my childhood summer holidays and every Christmas in Barcelona. I lived and worked in the city in my twenties and I am fluent in both Spanish and Catalán. If I were to live anywhere else in the world, Barcelona would be my first choice, closely followed by Ibiza.
So much has been written about Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, Barça Football Club or Catalunya’s quest for independence that today I just want to give you an insider’s guide to Barcelona.
