reaching barcelona from munich or prague

by tranceperent

hi, me and my wife are planning a backpacking trip next month, one of our destination is prague. we plan to reach prague from munich. can some body help me to know which is the cheapest way to reach barcelona from prague, or should i go to munich to fly to prague. here in india im not able to find the right travel agent who can book this sector.
also i find the rates of airfare from munich or prague to barcelona is (315euros one way for 2 pax) almost half the price of the airfare im paying for a trip from india.
is it that expensive? or is there another cheaper option.
also if someone can help me for the cheapest way to reach ibiza, it would be lovely.

did you tried www.vueling.com?
they do the Prague-Barcelona route but I think they do not fly all days of the week

315€ for 2 pax is not unreasonable if you're using a regular airline, one way tickets tend to work more expensive. Even the so called 'budget' airlines can get quite expensive if not booked in advance and maybe you're already too late

I use www.trabber.com to find flight possibilities from A to B

best of luck!

As Belsaita has suggested, Vueling is the best option. A Ticket on the 12th of September,for example, costs 130 Euros per person all taxes included.

We agree with Belsaita's suggestion, booking on VUELING, costing around 300 Euros for two people, which is quite a good deal. However, sometime two years ago, we were fortunate to find Alitalia grand sale which was quite unusual a return BCN to Prague and back to Barcelona it cost per passenger 120 Euros, as I said it's quite unusual and we grab it with no second thoughts. Have a grand time in Barcelona! Happy traveling and much luck to both of you! Once your in Barcelona airport. Try your best to use the train for cheaper and more practical means to get to the city, of-course we also have the aero bus (it's something like an airport bus which pick you from the airport to the city, however, it is slightly more expensive than using the train. If you need more help how to get to the city feel to read our Barcelona homepage, compare the prices between using the train (which means you can use the regular everyday metro train, the aerobus which is the airport bus, or if your feel big time traveler you can of-course use the taxi which is approximately or easily 30 Euros to your hotel/hostel/or residencia....one of the things you and your wife must focus is investing on a moneybelt as lately we have met many tourists (first time visitors here in Barcelona) that were pickpocketed and they never felt anyone come close to them...so, WEAR A MONEYBELT and protect your belongings!
HAPPY TRAVELING! :)

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Wedding Picture

by Rupanworld

After a similar experience in Paris, (see my Paris page for details), where I came across 32 couples from China taking their wedding pictures at Place de la Concorde, I came across one more Chinese couple at Montjuic mountain, in their wedding dress, taking wedding pictures. It was a bit funny for me, seems like a new fashion in China.

The Serdana.

by Jerelis

The Sardana is Catalonia's national dance and is more complicated than it probably appears. It succes depends on the dancers forming a circle and accurately counting the complicated short- and long-step skips and jumps, which accounts for their serious faces. Music is provided by a cobla ( an 11-person band consisting of a leader playing a three-holde flute (flabiol) and a little drum (tambori), five woodwind players and five brass players. The Sardana is performed during most 'festes' and at special day-long gatherings called 'aplecs'. In Barcelona it is danced every Sunday evening at 18:30u in the Placa de Sant Jaume.

We had quite a nice experience with this dance being in Tarragona. We were sitting in the sun having a nice cool beer in the Old Town. All of a sudden we saw a lot of people gathering together and suddenly heared music and the clapping of hands. I had a look and saw that some local people just spontaniously started to dance The Sardana. Just great!

Appropriate Barcelona Wear

by jhoolko

You're likely going to want to have a bag with you at all times, in the summer to carry a towel, fan, map (always a good idea!), chapstick, camera, the usual, and in the winter to have an umbrella, extra scarf, and of course, the map again. Make sure you have a bag that closes securely, and that you can hold close to your body. If you exercise a normal amount of caution and don't let your wallet hang out of your bag, you should be fine, but chances are it'll be obvious you're a tourist and it's always best to play it safe. If you're wearing a long shoulder bag, keep it in front of you. Your best bet is a shoulder bag that zips shut and can be held tight under your arm. Flip flop sandals are OK! They're comfortable, everyone wears them, and remember it gets HOT! I recommend getting a nicer looking pair, maybe some leather ones and not rubber, though white havaianas were all the rage during summer 2006. Heels are a nightmare on the cobblestones, though I would recommend a nice pair of boots for ladies during the colder months. And they get COLD! It was regularly wet and in the 40s during November and December and in March it hovered in the 50s. Don't underestimate the cold or the rain. If you don't have an umbrella, don't pay more than 3 euros for one, look for the convenience stores. It's also wise to have a raincoat or jacket with a hood. I never had one and regretted it with every freak rainstorm.
In the summer, a versatile necessity for women is a lightweight dress. Most of the nightspots are not very formal and it will transition wonderfully onto the beach. Farmacias will provide you with all the medicine you need in the case of an emergency, but save yourself some time and pack a small supply of personal items. Bring your camera at all times! You will regret not taking pictures, but be sure to keep it secure in a ZIPPED bag, and don't bring too much equipment or you and your back will regret it later. If you're going to the beach, keep a sarong or thin towel tucked in your bag, but be careful, the sand will leave a reddish-soily stain on it, so if it's a sarong you like to wear as a cover-up, keep it off the sand. Be sure to bring a towel because one thing I learned is that they are surprisingly expensive, ESPECIALLY at el corte ingles. If it's summer you won't need to do much drying off when the sun's out, so just get something that will keep you off the sand and travel easily. Always have a map! It's a no brainer, but will save you hours and trips back and forth from the streets to your accomodation. You can get a free, comprehensive one from El Corte Ingles. And stop by boqueria and pick up some fruit or pastries. there are plenty of pleasant places to stop and have a snack and it will save you tons of money. Water is also a necessity. You will regret stopping desperately at a restaraunt for a drink when you could have saved several euros and gotten a bottle for 20 cents at the grocery.

A Tour around the Nou Camp

by easyoar

The Nou Camp (or Camp Nou in Spanish) is the largest football Stadium in Europe. This is where Barcelona Football Club (commonly known as barca to the locals) play their home games.

The ground was built in 1957, and has the alternative name as "The house that Kubala built". This takes a little working out as Kubula who was a goal scoring phenomenom in the 1950s musy have been way to busy to build any stadiun single handedly. In fact Kubala (of Hungarian birth) was so popular with is acrobatic style of play and sheer strength, that the previous stadium could not cope with the number of supporters who wanted to watch him. A new bigger stadium was needed, and this is it.

The tour takes you into the changing rooms, the players chapel, the pitch and the Barca museum of Football. If you like football, it is a very entertaining trip. Indeed I was told if you don't like football, it is still good fun!

the typical espadrille

by chicabonita about Shoes / Clothes

According to our travel guide even Cathrine Zeta-Jones buys here the espadrilles ... now me too :-)

Cathrine wasn't in but several old elegant Spanish ladies buying new ones for the summer to come.

After finding the correct size it starts to get difficut. Which color should I choose? Yellow, no turquoise or maybe orange ... just black would also be beautiful but isn't it to boring? What about light green or olive, maybe purple? Difficult, difficult ....

Finally I bought a pair in orange and on in light blue. espadrille, espadrilles and more espadrilles
