Even when you have planned everything correctly, there are times when unforeseen circumstances can see you find yourself at a loose end. If you find yourself in such a situation then keep the following tips in mind and this can help to prevent you from feeling bored while traveling.
Tip 1 – Make New Friends
When you are traveling to a new destination such as Barcelona it can really help you to enjoy all that such a city has to offer if you make friends with of the city’s residents. Okay you may have difficulty at first because you cannot speak their language but carrying a phrase book or dictionary with you can help. Also it wouldn’t harm you to download a language course that will enable you to learn some basic phrases before you go.
Making new friends in such a city as Barcelona is going to help you discover parts of the city that are often avoided by the tourists. So it offers you the chance to get a real feel for what this city is truly like.
Tip 2 – Live Its Culture
When visiting places like Barcelona of course you can do the usual and spend time in the museums or other tourist attractions. Plus of course no visit to the city would be complete without a visit to the home of FC Barcelona, Camp Nou. Of course visiting the stadium during the day is amazing, but the best time really to visit would be when a game is taking place. The whole atmosphere within the stadium really changes.
However if you aren’t able to get tickets for a game, then head down to one of the city’s local bars and enjoy the game there instead. Not only will you be able to enjoy watching the game but you are likely going to get the opportunity to enjoy some really traditional food and drink.
Tip 3 – Stay Busy
There are going to be times when the weather may not allow for you to get out and about. This certainly can be the case during the latter part of the year in Barcelona. To avoid having to watch some really awful Spanish shows (but a great way to try and learn a little more Spanish) then make sure that you bring along something to keep you amused. To save space in your luggage rather than popping in a paperback or two, why not invest in a Kindle instead. However if you already have an iPad mini then you can download a version for Kindle on to this instead.
If you intend to bring along an iPad or laptop then why not download some of your favourite shows or movies on to these to watch. Plus why not set up an account with the likes of Netflix. But remember to use this you will need a good internet connection.
