Échanges avec les voyageurs
I am renting out my entire flat and whenever possible I will be the person of contact for the guests at my home. If I am not available, I will be using a trusted agency to manage the check-in and check-out procedures. There is of course a contact number in case any questions may arise or for emergency purposes.
I absolutely love my neighborhood as it has many amazing streets filled with Modernist buildings and wide sidewalks.
The location allows guests to walk literally everywhere, from discovering the shops and restaurants along well-known streets such as "Paseo de Gracia", "Rambla de Catalunya", and "Enrique Granados". It is also very enjoyable to go by feet to "Barrio Gótico", the port area, as well as the beaches.
Getting around is extremely easily in my neighborhood. You can walk to many popular sites and neighborhoods. You can hail a taxi within a one-block walking distance. There are also multiple bus and Metro lines. You are as well within two blocks to taking train lines that bring you to popular cities on the outskirts of Barcelona such as Sitges, Castelldefels, Sant Pol, etc.
Some places I recommend that are nearby my apartment:
1. "Custo" - a great bakery serving delicious and good variety of breads and sweets as well as some salads and sandwiches (on Valencia Street, between Balmes and R. Catalunya)
2. "Casa Ametller" Grocery Store - sells organic fruits, vegetables and snacks (on Mallorca Street, within three blocks from apartment.)
3. La Creme de la Creme - excellent ice cream parlor. Worth the extra few blocks walk to have homemade ice cream (If you have a midnight craving, going downstairs to the Haägen Dazs ice cream shop located in same building can also be an option.)

I am originally from Vietnam and had been raised in Southern California, though I have been living in Barcelona now for the past 20 years and consider it my first home.
I have currently quit my job to collaborate in two NGO projects that I enjoy and find greatly fulfilling.
Places that I have particularly fond memories visiting are Maui, Trinidad & Tobago, Tuscany, Cambodia, Morocco, Istanbul and the Ivory Coast.
I love the beauty of nature and particularly appreciate flowers, divine trees, mesmerizing waterfalls, pure lakes, etc. My idea of an amazing day would be a scenic drive leading up an outdoor picnic, and having plenty of time then to sky and star daze and to discover new routes to trek and hidden pools to dunk into.
English is my most fluent language, followed by Spanish, Vietnamese and Catalan. I have been trying to learn to speak French forever, but I think I will be stuck at the Beginner´s level unless I go to live there for sometime.
Overall, I feel privileged and grateful for the life I have lived!:-)
