Internet

by Dmitry44

Hi!
I am going to be in Barcelona this summer. Unfortunately my apartment doesn't have internet access.
Could you advice internet provider (Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, 3G...) which I can use to set up internet connection?

Re: Internet

by freland

Hi,
much depends on what you need the Internet for,
I cannot give any specific advice , but perhaps you could ask in
www.phoneHouse.ES shop for eg usb-modem with prepaid 3G
(this will depend on the signal where the apartment is)
pls see http://www.prepaidgsm.net/forum/europe/5322-prepaid-data-spain.html

Hi

I personaly use Vodafone, theyre not the cheapest but service is good and if you get wifi with them it includes a usb modem you can use if you travel (just pay the days you use it). As mentioned by the previous poster check with phonewarehouse to get an idea of whats on offer.

Another option if your not staying very long would be to use the free wifi which is available in the public libraries or alternatively in cafes/restaurants.

Oops just spotted a bit of brain fade on my behalf that should of course have read phonehouse NOT phonewarehouse !!

Re: Internet

by Dmitry44

I didn't find any other options than Vodafones prepaid tarif.
I've bought modem (59 euros, 1 week free). After this you should pay 19 for week, 29 for 15 days, 49 for month. Traffic is not limited but when you reach 1G connection speed will be limited to 128 kbits.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Sardana

by Peret

You can see the sardana every monday in front of the Cathedral. Sardana is the traditional dance of Catalonia. The origins aren't known. For me is a little bit borring (I prefer salsa, he he) but is needed to see if you want to know the life of the people here. A lot of catalan people can't dance it (I can say i danced a little bit but i don't remember anymore) because it need dedication. The "colles" (groups) are not open to anybody, and they only allows you dance with them if you are a good dancer.
The music has a particular sound, i think emotive. And the dance has its utilities. For instance, my father-in-law and my mother-in-law knew them selves dancing Sardanes. You can see them in the photo.
Podeu veure dansar la sardana cada diumenge al matí en front de la Catedral. La sardana és la dansa tradicional de Catalunya. Els seus origens són desconeguts. Per a mi és una mica avorrida. La majoria dels barcelonins no la saben ballar perquè requereix dedicació. Les colles no estan obertes a tothom, així que no cal que hi intenteu ballar perquè no us hi deixaran entrar. La música té un so característic, una mica melancòlic, potser. I el ball també té la seva utilitat. Els meus sogres es van conèixer ballant sardanes, per exemple.

by naranja

The 'Sagrada Familia' is the most unusual church in Europe. Nature gave the inspiration to this grandest of Gaudì's work, full of symbolism. Of the 12 spires, one for each apostle, only 8 have been finished (the place is a constant construction site),and are covered by Venetian mosaics.

by jmbredeck

Easy to say, hard to do: Learn to speak some Catalan - that is, unless you have no plans whatsoever to leave Barcelona. Dance a Sardana. Try to find live jazz in Figueres by tuning into the radio program Carrer Cinquanta Dos. el seu carrer del Jazz.

Day Trip: Catalunya's Sparkling Wines

by jetsetterforever

Catalunya is home to a well-established sparkling wine industry. A 40 minute drive south of Barcelona will take you to the region's best vineyards, most of them being concentrated around Piedras and San Sadurni d'Anoia.

On one random day we chose the Codorniu cellars. Codorniu has been making sparkling wines since 1551 and is the world's largest producer of sparkling wines. When you arrive at this place, you'll see rows of grapevines surrounding the Codorniu estate. The estate itself is comprised of a few buildings, but the most interesting parts are underground, where the wines a stored away. This place has mile upon mile of subterranean wine cellars. It is so big, that they have a tram system to shuttle you around.

And yes, your tour will end with some wine tasting.

PS: Reservations can be made directly online at www.codorniu.com/bodega_visite.html

by donal

cadaques is another village near barcelona, about two hours away by bus. it's where salvador dali hung out at the weekends. a very med style white washed coastal village with loads of good old fashioned hippy vibes.
there's a really cool little hippy beach resort island right there too - you can get across the 5o metres or so in a little rope ferry!
go during the week during summertime cos it gets kinda busy.
