My family and I will be driving from San Sebastian Spain to Barcelona the week of April 6th. I am interested to hear preferred routes to take that are off the beaten path taking into account there is still plenty of snow in the mountains. We are happy to go via France or Spain. All ideas welcome!!

With all the comings and goings of housemates, my home is a veritable mental aslyum at the moment and I am finding it impossible to study. I absolutely must
complete a literature review for my Masters thesis this evening or I am dead. Does anyone know somewhere here in Barcelona that is quiet, cosey, conducive to study AND open until very late? Bonus points if they serve coffee and have wifi. [more inside]

I've just finished business school and have landed myself an internship at a very respectable multinational company in Barcelona, Spain. The internship is great, the salary dreadful. So, I'm now in a position where I can barely afford to live and need to find something else to suppliment my income.
Can someone give me an idea of what formalities I need to address in order to sell food in the streets of Barcelona? [more inside]

I would very much love to attend Friday's Christmas Concert at the Palau Musica
in Barcelona with Jose Carreras (scroll down slightly to the 21st of December). Only problem is, it's been sold out for months. The box office, concierge, and Google haven't been much help, so it's time for Ask MiFi. I would appreciate any leads on ticket brokers/ticket exchange sites that might be of help. I only need one ticket.

I'm going to Barcelona this weekend and wanted to get a book for the flight and for when I'm relaxing over there. Does anyone know of any good books that feature the city quite prominently? I'm happy to consider fiction, non-fiction, sporting, historical or political books, anything that you might have enjoyed and that you think might help me engage that little bit more with what Barcelona has to offer.

I have some vacation time coming up, but I never really know where I want to go or what I want to do. I know that I like artistic cities. I know that I'll be spending a lot of time taking photos. I know that I want something exotic enough that I'll have some good stories, but modern enough that I can enjoy modern conveniences. Where would you go if you were me? [more inside]
