A friend visited this week and I believe there are other shops in the city.
Hope this continues as I may head there later in the year.

He's up north. I didn't see any coffeeshops when I was there two years ago but I wasn't really looking.

Well, there's some info on their facebook site:


Kush Coffee Shop

c/Freixures, 8 (cerca del mercado de Santa Caterina)
(Freixures, 8 st. -near Santa Caterina market)

Descripción

Smoke cannabis legally in Barcelona, sit and have a coffee or a beer or just come in and chill.
All you need is photo I.D and 20 euros to join. Over 18s only!
Choose from our wide range of smokes.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll pass by next time i'm in Barcelona. Never heard of ir before.
Sounds good, but i doubt it will last long if they are really openly selling hash to anyone, and not just acting like a a private smokers/growers club/association.

If it fits your agenda, try to be there for Sant Joan night (23/06)
http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/ ... -joan.html

El 'Bar Ramón' is a good place for dinner and beers. Not expensive.

Sitges is a nice small town for a daytrip. It is an easy 30 minutes train ride from Barcelona.

Ride the "Blue tram" (if it's running) up to Montjuic castle for the best views of the city and surrounding area.

Cool man, thanks for the tips.

I have heard of Sitges alright - it was featured on a 'house hunting' program last week in fact (A Place in the Sun).

Unfortunately i'm going to miss the festival of Saint Joan :(

_J, I live in a region called Asturias, It is in the north of Spain, somewhere in between Galicia and The Basque Country.
It is a beautiful part of Spain that very few foreign visitors bother to visit. (They -like you- mostly prefer to go to the ugly crowded beaches on the mediterranean coast ;-)

My place is a 12 hours train ride from either Alicante or Barcelona, although there are flights from BCN, and you are welcome if you want to do a visit around here.

Can't tell you much about the area you are visiting, except for Barcelona, where i've been dozens of times, and Valencia which is also Ok.

If you are looking for beaches, i'd rahter take a ferry boat/plane from Valencia or Denia to Ibiza, or better yet to Formentera, and then again to Barcelona.

If you can change the order of your itinerary, and if you enjoy electronic music, i wouldn't miss the Sonar festival in Barcelona (13/14/15 June)-im sure you'd have a good time-:

http://www.sonar.es/en/2013/

Anyway, have fun, and pm me if i could be of any help.

I absolutely love to have 3 or 4 weeks to travel to a country and then tour all around going to both the obvious and less obvious spots on the way. I do find that people are generally more friendly in those less obvious spots. Palermo and Napoli are my favourite places in Italy - both, admittedly well known, but with bad reputations. I spent 5 weeks touring Italy in 2011.

Unfortunately, I'm no longer a student and have neither the time nor money to continue to do that (for the forseeable future anyway). It was my original plan when I decided some way back to go to Spain next, though ultimately, I had to be realistic so decided I could see a bit of the (east) coast now. Consider me revolutionary for not going to Marbella.

Thanks - were I doing a proper tour, I may well have done that. I have a good friend from Galica.

Yes, thanks. I had been looking at the boats from Denia and may well do this.

Yeah, cheers. I know about Sonar, it's pretty well renowned. I considered it but really, i'm poor as fuck right now so can't afford it.

Within an hour or so of laying my towel down on several sandy coves, in both Ibiza and Formentera , I was offered hashish . No worries on that score.

Im in Denia now. Nice spot. Pretty hungover today. Just watched tue Lions match streaming (excited for the first test)!

Scored some hash last night. About 10e worth for 15e. I was happy to pay that for just the ease of it. The kid wanted 20e. Basically he earned 5 bucks. He wasn't a dealer or anything so fair enough. Going to smoke a joint and go to the beach :)

Bus to Valencia in the morning and then train to Barcelona for 4 nights.

I thought it was cool. It's certainly very cosmopolitan. It was not particularly cheap.

To comment on Gaudi's influence on the city is an obvious thing to do but it is surprisingly widespread. The modernist buildings are interesting and stuff like La Sagrada Familia is obviously extremely impressive. It's bigger than I had expected but still not a massive city. The layout is kind of interesting, particularly the funny US style grid as you move away from the old centre.

I like the lads selling cans of beer on the street (almost 90% Indian - wtf?). Was not a fan of the city beach though, barceloneta was pretty shit. Los Ramblas was nicer and more entertaining than I expected (though the fucking whores there are grabby as shit). I was dissapointed with the Bocqueria de San Josep - both smaller and more expensive than I had anticipated.

Hard to boil it all down really or even recap my experience, should have taken notes. I had a lot of fun.

Hey, thanks for answering,

Generous_J wrote:I thought it was cool. It's certainly very cosmopolitan. It was not particularly cheap.

Yes, it is expensive -at least for spanish standards-

I like the lads selling cans of beer on the street (almost 90% Indian - wtf?)

Yes, and 90% of the heroin street sellers are Nigerians, and the Moroccans have the hachis market. However, in Madrid, the guys selling those cans of beer in the streets are mostly Chinese, I don't know, should be a thing of local 'guilds'.

Was not a fan of the city beach though, barceloneta was pretty shit.

Agree. Like (most of) urban beaches anywhere.
It is a nice spot to go for a walk or have a drink in a terraza, but not for swimming. Better to go outside the city for beaches.

Los Ramblas was nicer and more entertaining than I expected (though the fucking whores there are grabby as shit)

La Rambla has character and charm.
Talking about prostitution, you should have taken a walk in the barrio del Raval some years ago, before its gentrification. That was quite scary.
I think nowadays, most of the street prostitutes has been taken away from the center, and they do their job in the streets surrounding the Nou Camp football stadium

I had a lot of fun.


Bien, bien, but next time visit the north and northwest, your soul and pocket will be thankful

On our very first foreign holiday as a family, we went to a caravan park in the south of France!

The guy in the next caravan was an uber-pisshead from Bristol who'd spunked all his holiday money days before it was time to come home!

Out of desperation he sold me the pair of non-refundable tickets he'd purchased off the rep for a day trip to Barcelona, at half face value!

Me and my eldest Son had a whale of a time thanks to his chronic alcoholism!

I felt that guilty about it, I bought him and his missus a pot noodle each on the coach back to Blighty!


Peace, Des.
