368. Welcome to My Blog. This is a very special blog as it is my reunion after more than 15 years abroad with this wonderful city: Barcelona.
Barcelona has 1.608.746 habitants (2016) where more than 15% are foreigners. We have a wonderful weather all year around with temperatures between 14ºC degrees to 29ºC. It is a very safe city where you can walk around, take a scooter and enjoy the city without being afraid or weary all the time.
The prices of rental are a little high but food and shopping are standard and ever good prices can be found.
we have the mountain and the sea, very well connected to all the European capitals and great international connections worldwide.
There is a multicultural gastronomical revolution going on where amazing new restaurants are opening with ever more variety and rich multicultural options. It has all the good things of a city like London for instance without the dull skies! Enjoy and welcome to Barcelona!
366. At last February 3rd arrived with the brand new opening of the largest H&M Store in Spain. This Store is very special as it not only covers four whole floors of retail space but has two innovations: Home Goodies known as H&M Home and..... a new vegetarian coffee shop @Flax & Kale by Teresa Carles.
The H&M Home is interesting, it looks like Ikea´s style not too cheap but the candles are cute and the hand soaps too!
@Flax and Kale though stole my heart! All our childhood memories brought together in one single place.
For those Spanish people who remember the good old Pantera Rosas or the Foskito... The Chef Teresa Carles has a surprise for you; she has remade these recipes by using vegan ingredients: Pantera Rosa is called Pink Lady and Foskito is now Moskito with mascarpone cheese. A true delicacy in vegan style! Check it out, but by recommendation would be to wait for a couple of days as it is fully packed with people!

358. Next Friday 3rd February H&M will open its largest shop in Spain located right on the corner of Paseo de Gracia and Gran Vía. It will cover a space of 5000m2 which it will include a Flax and Kale restaurant! Let’s remember that Zara opens just before Christmas its largest shop located in the heat of Plaza Cataluña... now H&M is following the strategy. The shop will be distributed on 4 floors but its most innovative idea is without a doubt the fact that one of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona will have another restaurant inside this huge retail shop located on the second floor which will have around 200m2. Let’s remember that Flax and Kale is a vegetarian restaurant with fresh cold press juices, and amazing macrobiotic dishes. Its definitely going to be a MUST try for us this following weeks!

319. In this article, I’ll tell you why 2017 looks like an excellent year to buy a property in Barcelona, as the pound could strengthen versus the euro, cutting your costs.
Are you thinking of buying a property in Barcelona? In that case, whether you’d like to buy a €240,000 flat in Vilanova i la Geltrú next to the beach, or a €265,000 duplex in Barcelona near to the shops, you’ll want the best exchange rate. After all, if sterling is flying high versus the common currency, you’ll need to transfer fewer pounds to buy your ideal property in Barcelona!
With this in mind, what’s set to happen to the pound to euro exchange rate in 2017, especially in light of the UK’s vote for Brexit? Well, let’s take a look, and how this could benefit you when you buy your Barcelona property.
The good news is that sterling could well strengthen versus the Eurozone’s common currency next year, above its current 1.1367. This is because, just last week, the UK’s High Court ruled that only Parliament has the authority to trigger Article 50, for the UK exit the EU.
This could lift the pound, and so make it cheaper for you to buy a Barcelona property, because this significantly lifts the odds of the UK pursuing a “soft” Brexit. After all, the UK’s MPs are likely to want the UK to stay in the Single Market, lifting the UK’s economic outlook for the coming years, and so sending the pound higher!
What’s more, the cost of buying a property in Barcelona could also fall next year, because the European Central Bank looks set to expand its extraordinary monetary stimulus, devaluing the euro.
To be specific, the Eurozone’s central bank currently prints billions of euros every month, to spur inflation in the common bloc. Next month, the ECB could well extend this scheme to 2017, to lift inflation to its +2.0% target. Given that this involves printing such vast sums, this could drag down the value of the euro, thereby making property in Barcelona considerably less expensive for you to buy!
Lastly, the pound to euro exchange rate may also strengthen next year, cutting the cost of buying Barcelona property for you, if Marine Le Pen wins France’s 2017 Presidential election. Ms. Le Pen leads the National Front party, France’s equivalent to UKIP. Following Donald Trump’s recent win in the USA, it’s thought that support for populist politicians like Ms. Le Pen has risen worldwide.
With this in mind, were Le Pen to win France’s Presidential election, the euro would weaken substantially, thus making Barcelona property more affordable for you, whatever the property you have in mind!
Given all this, 2017 looks set to be an excellent time to buy Barcelona property. Be sure to make the most of it!
315. I just absolutely love when I see and come across brand new innovative ideas like
Francesca´s SHARING KITCHEN! WOW! I just absolutely love her brand new launch of SHARING KITCHEN! For those culinary lovers like myself, coming across this new concept is just love at first sight!

Amazing! Love the idea! Check out the illustrative video and check out their site! Amazing!! 5***** connect and congratulations Francesca for this wonderful brand new concept in Barcelona!!
311. During the past Saturday 22nd September, Barcelona held, one more year, its International Community Day. A day dedicated to our international and multicultural population.
This time the Maritime Museum of Barcelona hosted this event. Next to the Sea and to the famous Columbus Statue, this wonderful Barcelona landmark received hundreds of expats.
An opportunity to network and meet people who have just landed in Barcelona or people who have been living here for years. Entrepreneurs, Directors, business people, workers, students, researchers or people who are enjoying a sabbatical year in this wonderful part of the world are some of the visitors. Amongst the exhibitors there was a representation of Barcelona services, internatioanl schools, public institutions, the city hall, associations, clubs and other experts in receiving international communities. It was such a rich and interesting day.
On the right hand sand you will find a video resume of what last year was like. Enjoy!
303. Barcelona is seriously such a wonderful and beautiful city to live in and the Organization Global Barcelona really knows about it. On the 15th September this great association organized a tremendous event in the beautiful Palauaet Albeneit in Montjuïc. The event was hosted by Michael Goldenberg and josep Lluis Sanfeliu members of the Barcelona Global Executive Board. The speakers were international professionals based in Barcelona sharing this experience of how great this city is and even how it’s evolving so quickly and developing. People like: Luca de Meo (President of Seat), Cecilia Tham (Open Innovation Strategist and Founder at Makers of Barcelona) and Christian Brander (Professor at IRSI Caixa AIDS Research institute at the HUGTP). It was a wonderful networking event together with a superb evening cocktail. Please see the facts and figures of this article where you can see the quality of life that Barcelona has to offer. Enjoy!
