About Kelsey Wilson

California native turned Barcelona resident and enthusiast as of July 2013. As living as essentially a tourist in the city, I take full advantage to live as though on an extended, semi-permanent holiday . By this, I mean dining on both local and international cuisine, attending day festivals, visiting outside-the-box tourist attractions, seeing lesser-known parts of Barcelona, and finding hidden gems. As my time in Barcelona accumulates, my love for the city grows exponentially. With hat being said, I would love to share some of my favorite places, spaces, sights, restaurants and activities so that you can appreciate all that it has to offer.
