What to Pack: Barcelona, Spain
A free-spirited energy flows through the streets of Barcelona, where locals take a decidedly unfettered approach to dressing. Like the city’s lush gardens and whimsical Gaudí architecture, there’s no lack of imagination, colour and diversity when it comes to personal style. Barcelona is the largest metropolis on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Known for its distinctive location between the water and the mountains, nature is a prime source of design inspiration. For travellers packing for a trip to the Catalan capital, almost anything goes – after all, Barcelonans are celebrated for their non-judgemental approach to fashion. However, there are a few items you’ll want to have in your suitcase. Following a 10-day trip to Barcelona in preparation for Here & There Magazine’s next issue, our co-founders share a few of their travel essentials.
