Megan's Travel Tips for Barcelona

What are the best places to eat and drink in Barcelona?

La Alcoba Azul - Tapas. They are so busy that they joked and asked me to write a bad review so people stop coming! The restaurant and bar have young staff who are lots of fun. The tapas are outstanding and great craft cocktails. Overall the experience was so good, we went twice on one trip!

What are the best things to do in Barcelona?

While not a hidden gem, La Sagrada Familia is a must-see! Just so impressive. In terms of hidden gems, I would say Montjuïc Cemetery was really cool to explore, it's on the way from the airport, so maybe make a pit stop on your way in!

What is the best tip for a romantic getaway in Barcelona?

Get a hotel with an underground grotto pool and spa! So amazing to take a moment to relax with each other in a calm environment with the city roaring above. And the last tip - save the stress, book all of your dinner reservations before coming! So worth not worrying about it each day.

Marugame Udon was such a flavorful treat! The curry was delicious! And the udon lived up to the hype. Our Mother’s Day brunch at Bali was expensive but delicious!

Kids (age 6 and 4) loved Sea Life park (the bird area, dolphin show, and seal show). It’s a small park but easy with young kids. Aulani was magical. Absolutely worth every pretty penny.

Be prepared for a LONG wait for a rental car. Bring snacks. Get Disney gift cards ahead of time if staying at Aulani, can use for room and all charges on room! Better if you can get at a discount! Go City Pass helped us save some money

Carmen's Travel Tips for Santorini

What are the best places to eat and drink in Santorini?

We went to tons of restaurants so it's hard to choose! Metaxi Mas - hands down the best food on the island. So good that we went twice! Awesome specials and the menu is great. Good drink selection and comes with complimentary dessert. Has amazing views of the countryside and the ocean if you sit outside. Definitely recommend booking in advance. They have heaters for those coolers nights on the patio. On-site parking and is near a beautiful church.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Santorini?

Santorini isn't generally a kid friendly place - it would recommend coming here with older kids (10+) as the streets are more for walking than for strollers. However, if you do come with smaller children, I recommend staying near Kamari beach as kids always have fun at the beach. There is also a wonderful kid friendly restaurant called Fistikies where they have great food and have a playground for kids if they are bored. Pleasant outdoor seating as well. The outdoor theatre is great if the kids are old enough to sit through a movie.

Shayla's Travel Tips for Tofino

What are the best places to eat and drink in Tofino?

We are obsessed with Tacofino and would eat it everyday while we’re visiting. The food is fresh and delicious and the staff are always so kind. We also love visiting Rhino on the morning of our departure, their donuts are a perfectly sweet way to end the trip.

What are the best things to do in Tofino?

Every beach is lovely in Tofino but we have surfed with Pacific Surf Co. and they were so awesome and accommodating to our skill level (which was none). We also tried out Tuff City Saunas for the first time and they are amazing! Dunking into the freezing ocean in between sessions was not something I envisioned myself doing but was so glad I did.

What is your best travel tip for Tofino?

Tofino has something for anyone and everyone to do, whether you like to surf and bike or read, rest, or shop it’s the perfect place to vacation however you want. My best tip would be to go with the flow. It’s not a big place so spots can get crowded and busy so be patient with the locals and staff and try not to sweat the small stuff.
