Mejor Asiento en Vueling

Hoy en día se han puesto de moda las compañías de low cost como vueling.
Son compañías que funcionan bastante bien, y la relación con su precio hace que sea una opción muy interesante de viajar.

Ellos mismos te facilitan el checkin online, de manera que si tienes un ordenador puedes utilizar este servicio que es muy cómodo porque puedes imprimirte el billete en casa o utilizar el móvil como tarjeta de embarque y si viajas con equipaje de mano, te permite acceder al avión rápidamente sin tener que pasar por facturación.

Sin embargo, la experiencia y el uso del checkin online te coloca casi siempre más allá de la fila 15 a no ser que pagues unos cuantos euros por elegir asiento.
Viajar más allá de la  15 no es un problema,  puesto que la estrechez entre asientos es la misma para todos excepto algunos afortunados de la primera fila o las filas de las alas.

Al llegar a destino, ves cómo sale todo el avión mientras que pacientemente esperas a que llegue tu turno y te preguntas si por viajar sin equipaje no podrían tener la deferencia de colocarte en las primeras filas.

Una solución, puede ser hacer el checkin en el aeropuerto, aunque viajes con el equipaje de mano, puedes realizar el checkin en el mostrdor puesto que el programa informático que utilizan, asigna los asiento de atrás hacia adelante y así reserva los mejores asientos (los de delante) para los que facturan por el método tradicional y mejora aun si es en el último minuto.

No siempre funciona, pero suelen ser mejores asientos si haces el checkin en el aeropuerto.
Un problema es que hacer este checkin allí, supone (dependiendo del aeropuerto y la hora) unos 15-20 minutos de paciente espera en el mostrador. Así que este método solo se puede utilizar cuando vas con tiempo al aeropuerto.
Además, muchas compañías todavía practican la legal práctica del overbooking que es vender más pasajes de los que tiene el avión, así si no realizas el checkin a tiempo, puede ser que te quedes en tierra y como digo, esta práctica es legal y todavía se realiza.

Buen viaje  !!!

Sagrada Familia

Now it’s time to talk about gaudi’s Sagrada Familia (holy family) it is the unique cathedral in construction in the world and was consecrated by the pope Benedict XIV some years before.

Really, really I need to visit a church? Yes It’s compulsory if you travel to Barcelona, really if you are catholic, then with two reasons, but if don't you have to visit too. It is an impressive modernist building really, really beautiful and different to all other churches in the world.

The Sagrada Familia is more or less at the middle of Barcelona, but out of the habitual tourist areas. The first that you see is a huge queue of people waiting to buy his ticket to go inside.

However, do not buy your ticket yet, take a look of the two sides of the building. The first is the oldest named the birth of Jesus side, is spectacular and it was built for the same Gaudi.

The other side is the Pasion side, is of the architect Subirach, one of the disciples of Gaudi but is not the same style and sometimes is argued about is work.
You have two parks around the monument to see it, then you can buy your ticket and enjoy a temple made of a naturalism architecture, impressive ceilings and magnificent central room with columns imitating trees. All the art of Gaudi is imitate the nature and all the details are copied of the real nature, some strange in a catholic temple.

Please don’t forget your camera!!! And let me now your impressions about it.

El freaky del Barça

 In Barcelona, we have got some football teams, the most knew is the F.C.B. we don’t spoke off Barcelona at this way; we know this team in informal chat like: Barça (barsa).

There are here a lot of fanatics of this team, but not of us are of this team, there are others important teams in this city like Españyol, (it is my favourite) this is another team of the premiere league of Spain.

 The tourist sometimes… a lot of times bought t-shirts of the city team in a lot of official stores, and is an important business for the city. Don’t worry are Barça memorabilia because are all around!
Barça is important because is an historic team of football and it wins a lot of championships.

Now I going to talk about a freak of this team. I don’t know this man, he lives in a flat that have a lot of flags of this team, at the night he switch on a lot of lights, blue and red (the colors of Barça team). Sometimes we are walking around and we look at the top of the building to see what new about barça it has done.
My wife and I we call him the freaky of the Barça, but in really we don’t know this men, woman… or whatever…

The flat is opposite the FCB stadium in Av Meridiana, this street is the second larger street of the city, we can travel from the north of the city to the south only walking in two streets, first Meridiana and then Gran Via, but if we need going out of the city for the west, we take the Diagonal street.
At the middle of this street the Glorias square, with and important building like an huge suppository similar to others buildings that are around the world like in London.

Travel to Barcelona


Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, is close to Mediterranean Sea and is well knowed in all the world for two events, the Olympic games of 1992 and the Barcelona football team.

The first that you have to know when you travel to Barcelona is that we have only one Airport, with two terminals T1 and T2 there are very close but you need to take a bus to travel from one to the other with 10 minutes of travel.
The T2 now is only for Ryanair and T1 is newer and used for the rests of air companies of the world. Girona is 100km from Barcelona 1 hour traveling by bus and sometimes Ryanair are landing there, but remember is cheaper but you need take a bus and travel to the city.

Other way to travel to Barcelona is by Boat, in fact the Barcelona port is one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean Sea. Some ships have there his start and end of the cruise and is very ease take a boat to travel from there to all the Mediterranean sea by boat.
The last but not least is train, we have high velocity train from Madrid in the middle of Spain or you can travel from France to la jonquera by train and take high velocity in Figueres to Barcelona.

Barcelona is delimited for the sea at the east, the collcerola mountains in the west, Besos River at north and Llobregat River at south (more or less geographically)
The centre of Barcelona is the Catalunya square, is in the middle of the city, from this square to the sea there are and old neighbourhood with some important churches, the cathedral the gothic quarter and the old walls of the city
From the Catalunya square to the mountain there are a new quarter, is from XIX century and we found a lot of modernism and the new city.
From the Catalunya square to the south you can see the montjuic mountain with all of the Olympic places from the games and we will found at last the llobregat river

and if you go to the north the most important that you found is Gaudi’s Sagrada familia is the unique Cathedral that is in construction at the world, and is really beautiful, behind this, the suburbs until we arribe to Besos river another frontier of Barcelona.

I hope that information could be useful, please give me your feedback or tell me about some that you want to know about Barcelona and I can tell you from the inside.
