5 Ways to Transform and Travel: Barcelona, Spain

Updated: Jun 22, 2020

Do you love to travel? When you travel, do you feel like your soul is set on fire?

Did you think about transforming and traveling at the same time? Is Spain home for you or close by?

There are so many hidden ways to transform and travel. With travel, we have opportunities to explore, learn and grow. When we reflect internally and take action externally, we transform into a new version of ourselves.

Maybe you love to travel alone? Or maybe you are thinking about traveling with a group or a transformation retreat? Maybe you even want to take the kids along?

 Choose what’s best for you now. Each and every time you travel, challenge yourself to experience something differently besides the city or country.

Have you been dreaming about traveling to Spain? I don’t blame you. I’ve been twice now and definitely plan to go back again. Spain has something for everyone. You may experience culture, beaches and adventure to start. It truly has something for everybody.

 It’s time to transform and travel.  Get your journal out to make a plan. It feels great to dream about traveling to Spain and transforming. Putting pen to paper and taking action wins every time.

You want to transform and travel to Spain, but you don't want to break the bank doing it?

Check out 5 Ways to Transform and Travel in Barcelona, Spain. It’s time to turn your life into your dream.

Insight in Spain

Spain does it all and has it all. It’s easy to see why Spain is one of the top visited countries in the world regularly.  The country combines culture, experiences, and food in every way. 

It’s worth it to visit Spain whether you go for a day, a week, or a month traveling solo or with a group. After you read my recent experiences in Barcelona, Spain, you will have more ideas than you can count to transform and travel.

Highlights from Barcelona, Spain Travels

I love Barcelona. What’s not to love from the culture, language, food and so much more?

Did you know that Barcelona is home to Spain’s largest park Montjuic, best beaches of the world, and food market and shopping streets? 

I’ve gotten to visit Madrid and Barcelona with some friends in 2013. During that visit, we stayed at a VRBO (Airbnb didn’t exist yet) and loved it! We did a double decker tour in Barcelona, tapas tour in Madrid, and flamenco dancing at Villa Rosa in Madrid.

I highly recommend all three. A double decker tour is a great way to see any city, especially for the first time and/or if you are short on time. In Barcelona, we visited Parc Guell, enjoyed Gaudi’s architecture in the city, and took cruise at the port in Barcelona. 

Recently, I visited Barcelona in 2018 again. Each and every time I go, I feel like I fall more in love. I love roaming the aisle at Mercado de la Boqueria (Food Market) and drinking yummy fruit drinks. The art and sunset at Parc Guell is absolutely breathtaking. The sites like Sagrada de la Familia remind us of how small we really are.

This time, when I went to Barcelona, Spain I knew I would be in the city for a day, and creating content and hosting the mastermind event the remainder of my time. I planned the highlights of the day in Barcelona somewhat in advance, and adjusted as I went.

I stayed at an incredible Airbnb (with a garden and a pool) in Castelldefels, which is a municipality that is part of Barcelona, Spain. It’s about 30 min away from the center and is amazing.

Before we get into the 5 Ways to Transform and Travel in Spain, I want to share some of my story. I am sure there are some travelers, adventures, and bloggers here (or those that want to be). I believe it’s important to relate so you know that I understand a variety of experiences.
