Typical Drinks and Food in Barcelona – Where to Visit

I love Barcelona and love the food.  While I have been in this beautiful city, I have discovered lots of wonderful places to eat and drink. Here are just a select few, which I will be adding to as I spend more time in Barcelona.

Churros

30 Free and Cheap Things to Do in New York City

New York is the city that never sleeps and many may think it is too far out of their price range to visit.  I love NYC and want others to know it is possible to visit without blowing your budget. I have discovered 30 free and cheap attractions to visit that will not break the bank.

1. Central Park

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city in the 843 acres of gardens in the middle of the city. Central Park was inspired by public parks in London and Park and was the first landscaped public park in the US. In the winter, there is an ice skating rink and in the summer, a roller blade rink.  I come to the park to run and there is one way to run around the park – go clockwise only, or meet the wrath of locals.  In the center of the park is the Jackie Onassis reservoir, challenge yourself and run around it.  The full route round the park is around 10km.
