What To Do In Barcelona For Christmas
Europe, Spain

Barcelona Christmas Markets

When you think of Barcelona, you don’t usually think of Christmas markets. Paella, football, or tapas usually comes to mind first, not sparkling fairy lights and Christmas trees. It’s a destination that you should definitely add to your Christmas bucket list. Barcelona is beautiful at Christmas time, especially the Barcelona Christmas markets. The lights are all lit, the Christmas trees are sparkling, all under the usual Spanish sunshine and milder winter temperatures. Come enjoy Christmas in Barcelona, it’s quirky, sunny, and definitely full of seasonal charm. Here’s a list of Barcelona’s Christmas markets so you can enjoy some local Feliz Navidad.

Is Naples Worth Visiting

Is Naples Worth Visiting

Everyone’s probably heard the stories about Naples; a hotbed of the mafia, streets full of muggers, pickpockets and murders. Which would make any person question if it’s safe to visit Naples let alone wonder if it’s worth visiting? I know it’s possibly controversial, but I think Naples is definitely worth visiting. There’s ancient history to learn about, amazing food to gorge yourself on and a rugged spirit to discover.

Where To Eat In Havana

Mostly when you speak to people or read blogs, the consensus about Cuba and food is that it’s terrible, which is why where you eat in Havana is so important. The Cuban food was once pretty average, when all restaurants were government-run, and had to serve the same food for the same price. Now, privately-owned restaurants are popping up all over Cuba, and are changing the game when it comes to food.

Have a guidebook with you, or make a list before you go, as you won’t be able to Google “where to eat in Havana”, while on the streets.

Top Things To Do In Havana

Havana is a snapshot from another century and a postcard to a different way of life. Large boulevards intersect in the city, lined with grand old buildings that are now falling into ruins. Smaller roads twist between them filled with rickshaws and pop-up market stalls. Trees grow through empty windows, but if you look closer you’ll see someone’s washing hanging in an old foyer, and stairs leading to a lighted doorway. Buildings that would not meet the safety code elsewhere are still filled with life. Children play on the streets and people sit in their doorways to watch the world go by. Art is everywhere, and so are references to Ché and Fidel, the socialist heroes. There’s a lot of great activities that you can do in Havana, and here are just a few top things that I enjoyed.
