    We're stopping at the Gallery Hotel, all booked up through British Airways as it's saved us over £130 combining flights & them arranging the hotel for us, plus we get a free night stay with cheaper flights. Could not argue with that, plus the Mrs wouldn't shut up about being close to La Rambla lol
    I walked down Ramblas too alone about 8pm. Not late late but still not daylight either, Las Ramblas overplayed too. Anywhere is safe. I've been loads of places including London and the place I've felt most safest and relaxed in is Barcelona.

    I am so looking forward to going next April, and I will cheer my heart out for our beloved Barca.

    I think pocketpicking in some European cities is blown out of proportion. I was warned of the same problem before we went to Paris, but we had seen none of that whatsoever.
    What game are you going to?

    BTW you obviously are not going to see the pick-pocketing unless you know what to look for.

    I am going to see the game against Getafe on April 29th, already bought tickets.

    Was wondering if I could catch the away game against Espanyol a couple of days earlier, don't know how to get tickets.

    So where do I meet the pickpocketers, Kerry?

    You won't wont meet them, they'll be gone before you can blink ha

    Viagogo have tickets but I'm not sure how reliable they are. Last season there were about 8k empty seats at the away game for Espanyol so perhaps a ticket can be bought on the day of the match at the stadium. Just hide your Barca jersey if you are sitting with the home fans.

    Is it really that bad? I can't wear my Barca jersey out in the open?

    Yeah, I probably will go to the Espanyol stadium, there should be plenty of tickets available.

    I'm really not the person to ask, I assume it would be fine though.
