It is going to be our birthday next month. We do not care very much about xmas nor new year. They are good to haves. We do care about our birthday a lot. And we mean A LOT. Why? We are not narcissists. We never quite grew up with a wonderful birthday, or maybe we shouldn't really say this. Our birthday is on Valentine's Day. Probably one of the worse day you can have a birthday on. One thing we were grateful about was that our sisters always made it to our birthday dinners. We love them both. After a while, birthday celebrations were just so passe. We do not believe in family birthday occasions. Our birthday is a very private thing. We call our friends, close friends only. Or, maybe just Mr Washy. this is actually the first time Mr Washy is celebrating our birthday with us, come to think of it. It has always been long distance. This year, Mr Washy is bring us to Barcelona. A place we have always wanted to visit because we grew up with Picasso and Salvatore Dali, our favorite.

So, knowing us, the place we stay is crucial. This is our breakdown in criteria this time...
  • In the middle of everything. It has to be walking distance to everything.
  • We are not looking for a hotel. The thing about us is.... we love food. We might not cook very well but the whole experience of cooking with local produce is so exciting. It is a rare opportunity and how can we let that go? So, an attached kitchen is important.
  • An apartment it is. So, it has to be comfortable, hotel-like, comfortable, everything...
  • An apartment... yes, but it has to come with the mod cons. As in modern conveniences. In this case, TV, kitchen, heating, air conditioning, DVD , blah blah blah....
  • Professional transaction and hotel-like services. One thing about renting from owners/apartments is that they are not hotels. So, they do not have the space for you to keep your luggage before or after check in or out... if you still have time to spare before boarding, which is it in our case. We managed to find a wonderful owner with an office where we can drop our belongings. How wonderful is it?
And we found this... for a wonderful price. Cheaper than hotels during the period of Valentine's Day and the World Mobile Congress at Barcelona.
