    The other is Amsterdam 🙂 Great city too and very different in so many ways.

    A lot of very interesting historical places, all the canons, good resturants and so easy to walk because it´s not so big. Like, surprise, Barcelona!

      Amsterdam, I never would have guessed. I will have to look at Amsterdam now. I haven’t written a blog article about Amsterdam before, so I will have to write one. One of my husband’s friends loves Amsterdam as well, so I am now intrigued.
      Keep watching for an Amsterdam to 5 things to do blog!

    Knowing Barcelo0na well, I would jump on this deal about Hotel Front Air Congress Aeropuerto! Looks very great.
    Like to your suggestion to do in Barcelona, one of my 2 favorite cities (outside Iceland!). Hope it´s ok if I add to go the FC Barcelona Museum, one of the most popular museum in Spain. Incredible feeling to go there, after I have heard too for people which are not much in sport. FC Barcelona are in many way the history of Catalunya.
    But, Barcelona is so great city that I could add and add! Your suggestions are great. And this hotel are very well located!

      Hello,
      A very good suggestion to visit the FC Barcelona Museum. I will have to add it to my list of places to see. You made me curious, if Barcelona is one of your two favorite cities outside of Iceland, what is the other city? One I know, I will add it to my list of upcoming blogs!
      I do think this hotel is well located and at the price, it is an exceptional bargain.
      I look forward to hearing your answer.
      Sincerely,
      Xin
