Luxury for Less in Barcelona




For most people, traveling in style across Europe is just a pipe dream, and because of that, many travelers never get to indulge in the extravagance of the high life. In Barcelona however, opulence isn’t limited to the wealthy, as travel writer Sònia Graupera explains to one of National Geographic’s correspondents: “[hotel prices in the city] are still very reasonable, compared to Paris, London, or Milan.”

In the past few years, international chains have expanded in Spain’s second largest city, which worries many budget travelers as boutique hotels have probably upped their costs now that Barcelona is drawing in a higher-earning clientele. But from Sònia’s experience from writing travel pieces about the city, she assures that the family-owned boutique hotels have maintained their affordable pricing.

One of these boutique hotels is the futuristic looking Room Mate Emma, which have decently priced rooms as well as suites with with private terraces. Not too far off from this hotel’s area is The5Rooms, with each of its rooms designed with a different feel. Perhaps the coziest room they have is one that is decked out with bare brick wall and romantic lighting.

For nightlife, travelers will probably check out the city’s bars and clubs, however hopping from place to place in the nightclub district could end disastrously with you spending more than you planned. An alternative to a fancy night out without blowing your savings is by heading over to Casino Barcelona, one of Europe’s finest gambling facilities designed by architect Frank Gehry.


The casino boasts one of the most stunning views of the Mediterraean, and invites all kinds of gamblers to take advantage of their extensive selection of games. These days, many choose to play their casino games online, as many portals are able to provide a bigger selection of games. Gala Casino, in fact, releases new games every week, giving a choice of nearly 400 games that are playable across a variety of devices. While they can’t hope to have the same diversity and variety of games, land-based casinos still uphold a certain kind of elegance and luxury that people still find appealing. Hence why Casino Barcelona is still one of the most revered gaming spots in the world.

After trying your luck at the regular cash games, head over to one of many establishments surrounding the casino and have a cocktail while listening to some live music. The selection of bars and restaurants saves you from having to pay for cab fares between bars and separate entrance fees.

With the diversity of accommodations and entertainment hubs offered, Barcelona makes it possible for you travel luxuriously without spending a fortune.

These are the 10 Best Restaurants in the World


What’s the greatest restaurant in the world? Top chefs and those who fork over their fortunes to eat their food are fascinated with the question. Now a new ranking has emerged to provide some extra fodder to the debate.

According to La Liste, a group convened by the France’s Foreign Minister and supported by the country’s tourism board, the top restaurant in the world is the Restaurant de l’Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, Switzerland.

Devoted five-star diners will note that only one restaurant in La Liste’s top 10 can be found on the current leading ranking of top restaurants, the World’s 50 Best list. And there’s good reason. No French restaurant has broken into the top 10 of that list, sponsored by water-maker San Pellegrino, in the last four years. La Liste featured three French restaurants in its top ten. France’s exclusion from the upper rungs of the World’s 50 Best has angered leading French cultural figures proud of their country’s culinary tradition. Partly in response to this disappointment, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius launched the new initiative to promote French tourism and fine dining.

“The angle was not to promote French [restaurants] per se,” says La Liste’s Antoine Ribaut, “but to be objective, because we trust we have the good fine dining.” Ribaut says the World’s 50 Best list is not objective. Several media outlets have pointed out that the lack of transparency does raise questions about how that list, sponsored by San Pellegrino, is decided. (Ribaut has consulted for Time Inc. His father Jean-Claude, the long-time food critic for Le Monde, contributed to the project.)

“Given that this list is based on personal experiences it can never be definitive, but we believe it is an honourable survey of current tastes and a credible indicator of the best places to eat around the globe,” the World’s 50 Best says on the organization’s web site.

“The thing with 50 Best is that the French were underrepresented, for sure,” Antoine Ribaut says, “but the reason why they were underrepresented was because there was a murky financial pressure for restaurants.” The funding for La Liste, it should be noted, came largely from private French cultural institutions. Swiss food giant Nestle is also a supporter.

Unlike the World’s 50 Best list, which is drawn from private surveys of chefs and those who frequent leading restaurants, La Liste is sourced from publicly available data, aggregating scores from 200 food guides and online review sites to produce what it hopes will be seen as an accurate, unbiased report of the best in the world.

The ranking is based on scores and reviews from a wide range of international sources: Michelin stars, yes, but also New York Times and Washington Post reviews, Zagat and Yelp ratings, Forbes and AAA travel guides and James Beard awards in the U.S., plus the cultural equivalents of these institutions in other countries (with help from foreign advisers).

Ribaut and his team then created an algorithm to assign these scores a value on a scale of 100; food factored in as 80% of the score, while ambiance, décor and wine combined factored in as 20%. If there was a positive review that didn’t include a numeric score, Ribaut counted it as a small bonus.

5 Carry-On Packing Tips for Long Flights


Instead of stuffing my carry-on with individual items until it becomes a bottomless pit, I always break up my airplane must-haves into smaller packs. I put all of my cords, chargers, and batteries in one small nylon bag, toiletries in another, and snacks into a disposable container I can toss when the trash bag heads down the aisle.


Extended hours and close quarters in an airplane cabin can wreak havoc on your immune system. I always pack a few essentials to keep germs at bay and reduce my risk of getting sick. I do my best to prevent illness and feel good post-flight by packing hand sanitizer, Emergen-C tablets, saline packets with an empty nasal rinse bottle, and a few healthy snacks (so I don’t eat expensive plane junk food).


Waking up after a long nap often means a messy face, smelly mouth, and general feeling of icky-ness, and the recycled air on a plane will dry anyone out. To feel clean and ready to arrive at my destination, I always pack facial moisturizer, lip balm, hand cream, face freshener spray (or Evian spritzer), a small pack of facial cleansing wipes, and a toothbrush and travel-size tube of toothpaste.


The best way to pass the time on a long distance flight is sweet, sweet sleep. To make sure I get some shuteye, I plan ahead and pack a large cotton scarf (that I can use as a blanket, roll up into a neck pillow, or drape over my snoring face), noise-canceling headphones and/or a white noise playlist (jungle sounds if I’m heading to South America, rain on a roof for Eastern Europe), a pair of cozy socks (no one can sleep with cold feet), and an eye mask.


When your destination takes you over six time zones or more, you are going to need to while away the hours by doing more than just sleeping. While in-flight entertainment options on international flights usually offer up a chance to catch up on your movie-watching, I always bring along more options, including: e-books (on a tablet with good battery life), downloads of the latest season of whatever show I am binge-watching, a crafty project to keep my hands busy (knitting, embroidery, or sketching), a large extra battery to keep everything charged, and, if there’s a task I’ve been avoiding (like writing thank-you notes), I pack the necessary items and use this time to catch up.
