    Welcome to the Garden.

    Advice for Barcelona is to go - beautiful city.

    By the looks of the offer you need a place in Manhattan for the swap but you're somewhere in Thessalonica - how does that work?

    I have now been to Barcelona twice and look forward to going back. It is a fantastic city and I highly recommend it.

    If you do offer yours on the site, put a link into the thread here - who knows, I might enjoy a break in the sun. Does Thessaloniki have sunshine? Museums?

    About 50 kilometers, there is one of the most amazing "must see" locations in the of The country. That is the monastery at Montserrat. There will be a lot of trips going there. It is an amazing day out. Create sure you have a lot of area on your photographic camera.

    Very well worth a visit and an easy train journey from the city. The cable car ride up from the station is spectacular too.

    My wife have also been considering a vacation to Barcelona. However, some people have been telling us that the crime rate has increased considerably. Others say that it is not a problem and just like any big city, you just have to be aware of your surroundings. Is crime in Barcelona worse than other European cities?

    I just googled to see what the waters told me and according to the Web, yes. I note this click to Yahoo, for example.

    I'm not surprised the opinion is rampant but in all my travels abroad, Barcelona included, and the travels of all my children abroad, Barcelona included, nothing untoward has ever happened. Perhaps street thieves home in on loud Americans like wasps to honey, I'm sure I would if I lived off the proceeds of crime.

    I once had my pockets rifled but that was sheer careless behavior on my part at 2am leaving a pub in my home city with a problem woman in tow. One of my sons did much the same in London except without the woman. Neither event was tourism related. The trick on holiday is not to be loud and not to flaunt hardware, fat wallets or brash ways.
