Barcelona

72 °F

Did I have fun? Yes. Did I enjoy Barcelona as much as I did a couple of years ago? No. The city seemed a little dirtier, not as friendly and a bit more expensive. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a must see city if you’ve never been here but my expectations may have been unrealistic from my memory of my past experience. Or, maybe I’ve come to the conclusion that visiting major cities don’t appeal to me as much as medium size cities.

What I have also figured out through my 4 months of travel this year, is that if your accommodations are lacking either in location or the rooms have been misrepresented, that really can ruin your experience.

I’ve come to the conclusion that not all Airbnb reviews are real, somehow the owners have figured out a way to manipulate the review process. I’ve always had excellent results with Airbnb but not this year. I actually got an update from Airbnb stating that they are going to do more inspections of listings, unfortunately, that didn’t help me on this trip. Did I complain to Airbnb? Yes. Was I satisfied with their response? No. I’ll be more inclined to stay in a hotel in the near future until my confidence in Airbnb has been restored.

I purposely haven’t read my last review of this city because I wanted to write something from the perspective of someone who has traveled here before. I am including the link to my past review if you would like a get a different perspective.
