A 'beso' is a kiss in spanish. This is about a city that kisses me every day I am in it. A city that continuously enchants me. It is about an infatuation that has turned into a love affair. Barcelona, I am besotted! Why.......???
EN ESPAÑOL, 'kiss' es 'beso', en inglés, 'besotted' es 'estar loco por alguien'. Cada día Barcelona me da un beso. Una ciudad que nunca deja de gustarme. Esto va de una historia de amor que empezó como un capricho.¡Barcelona, estoy loca por ti! Por qué.....???
...after Christmas in Australia, it is time to ski again! And Baqueira never disappoints. Located 3.5 hours from Barcelona, in the Val D'Aran, it is stunning and picturesque.....and has a Moet Bar on the slopes! UN BESO: Baqueira, X
...a cool little bar that serves both cocktails and crepes. Artisanal and delicious. It is a different concept (one I hadn't thought about) but they make it work. - you can combine cocktails and crepes!!

... tucked away in El Born, hidden behind a little wooden door, is a this old style bodega, overflowing with artifacts and ambience. The food is country style tapas, serving the pan con tomate that you prepare yourself. Delicous, friendly and cosy. UN BESO: La Tinaja, C. d'Esparteria, 9, x
About once a month, there is a fashionable little market at the Gallery Hotel, put on by Barcelona Events & Markets. There are artisinal fashion stalls, a wine bar, a jazz singer/DJ and a cool vibe. There really is also something for everyone (my friends and I found!). The next one is on the 21/22 November (just in time for Christmas shopping), and if you don't want a shop, it is a nice place to stop for a wine. UN BESO: Gallery Market, C. Rosellon 249, X http://www.galleryhotel.com/en http://www.barcelonaeventsandmarkets.com/barcelona_events_and_markets/inicio.html
