These tasty, snack-like treats originally come from the south of Spain and are usually served with beers, wines and Sherries. The most common type of tapa was a piece of bread [...]
There are quite a few crazy Spanish festivals, but La Mercè in Barcelona has to be one of the craziest. Once I had made the last minute decision to attend the TBEX Costa Brava conference in Girona, I looked at cheap flights to Spain and decided my best option was to fly into Barcelona, head [...]
