One of my sister Alison's favourite things about her first trip to Barcelona (and Spain for that matter) was churros! Churros are a fried dough snack that originated in Spain, and are popular for breakfast or a snack throughout the day.
A churro is a high fat treat. The dough is squeezed out through a machine called a 'churrera', and this creates long, ridged bits of dough. They are then fried in oil until they are crunchy on the outside and a little doughy still in the middle.
The best way to eat them is to dip them in hot chocolate - how evil is that!!
We came across a fabulous old churrerias - a shop specialising in them - and couldn't resist an afternoon snack : )

I was a bit shocked to see this in such a large city, but there were countless stray cats roaming the city. Especially near Montju?c and Palau Nacional. They're all so cute, but you can't help feel bad for these little creatures. I'm not sure if this large stray population can be attributed to negligence on behalf of the city's government or just an uncontrollable problem.
This little kitty was minding its own business, answering a call to mother nature, when all of a sudden it realized it was also posing for VT'ers all around the world!

Sant Ponc is the saint for beekeepers and herbalists. As an outdoor market aficionado--I live for this bit of local custom. On May 11, you walk through the Carerrer de L'Hospital and the narrow cobblestone street is filled with dozens of different booths selling honeys, candied fruit booths, and herbs. The herbalists display stuff for all you aches and pains and several beekeepers brought closed frames with the bees inside. It was intoxicating and delightful with ambiance.

As most of the VTers may know, patatas bravas is a typical dish in the Spanish diet, especially during summer when people like to eat them with a fresh beer.
The question has always been on the streets without a general agreement: where in Barcelona can we eat the bests patatas bravas??
Now the scientific study has arrived! Some months ago a journalist "sacrificed himself" elevating his tryglicerids level and did a kind of ranking about bravas. He judged separately the patata and the sauce (score in red). Here I show you the top five:
5. Resolis: in the heart of Raval with peel and basil
PRICE 4,80 €. Riera Baixa, 22 (Ciutat Vella) Telf.: 93 441 29 48
PATATA 9,5 / SAUCE 9,25
4. La Esquinita: one hour line to taste them!
PRICE 3,25 €. Fabra i Puig, 296 (Turó de la Peira) Telf.: 93 358 25 19
PATATA 9,5 / SAUCE 9,5
3. Tomás: long and very famous patates braves
PRICE 2,20 €. Major de Sarrià, 49 (Sarrià) Telf.: 93 203 10 77
PATATA 9,75 /SAUCE 9,75
2. Mandri: Terrasse ‘high class’
PRICE 2,40 €. Mandri, 60 (Sant Gervasi-La Bonanova) Telf.: 93 417 11 29
PATATA 9,75 /SAUCE 9,75
THE VERY BEST!: La Taverna del Clínic
Cylindrical patatas covered with a kind of pink sauce, soft, and black sesame and salt of Meldon. No words to define these patatas bravas: just taste them!!
PRICE 4,50 €. Rosselló, 155 (Esquerra de l’Eixample) Telf.: 93 410 42 21
PATATA 10 /SAUCE 10

I guess we all agree on this on; there is nothing more exciting than going travelling - exploring another country, experiencing a different culture, travelling around in new ways, sampling the local cuisine and chatting to the local people for a different perspective on life.
However during our travels we learned that there is one certain thing that you should be aware of and prepared for to make sure that the trip is as easy and enjoyable as possible. We always try to see everything once we're there, but this is not always an act of responsible travelling. We always talk to the locals and we know that they have the information about just the right spots to visit and how to undertake them. It will not only enhance your experiences but also avoid any unnecessary hassles.
For us the travel tips we have written in this section made the most of our travel experience and we came home in the same happy, healthy state that we left.
