      Barcelona Feb 1, 2017 at 6:51 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Barcelona and needing to get transportation from cruise terminal to hotel. I need to know of any transfer companies in Barcelona and also any recommendations for nice but not too expensive hotels that are centrally located. Also will be in Barcelona for 3 days, so would like recommendations for shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

    • Using the Metro or Bus

      by lud016 Online Now Jun 12, 2015 at 2:46 AM

      We are going to be in Bilbao on a cruise ship in September, we have decided that we would like to catch public transport from the ship to Bilbao. Sightseeing to include Guggenheim Museum, Puente de Calatrav, a trip up the hill on the Funicular, Old Town and then on our return to the ship go to see the Vizcaya Bridge. Our ship will be in port on a Saturday 8am - 6pm do you think the above itinerary is easily doable? If we were to use the metro could we get one ticket that we could use for on/off during the day or maybe many of the places are close together? Any advise on cost of a ticket and best way to do this (or anything else we should not miss) appreciated :). This is our first visit to Spain. Is the ticket interchangeable for use on bus, metro and funicular or would we need separate tickets?

      It is my birthday when I´m in Casco Viejo and I would like to find a good restaurant for the evening. However my husband is slightly deaf and finds it difficult to hear in noisy bars and restaurants. We love Basque cuisine, not tourist food and we also appreciate value for money...not nuevo cuisine with tiny portions. We would have eaten pintxos during the day, so we are looking for something more substantial at night.
