visual impairment - international travel - BCN

My friend has a visual impairment and will traveling to BCN solo on Delta. Is there a good procedure to follow to get off the plane, get forms filled out, get through passport control and customs, and make her way to the Uber line (and the reverse on the way home), ideally with the minimum of disruption or fuss? Suggestions from the very general to the very specific happily accepted. Thank you!

Southern Spain in January

Thanks to your input, Ireland is out, and although Italy was a close contender (when you ask a Florentine where to go for vacation, you should not be surprised at the answer, nor the fact that they know of a great agroturismo to recommend) we have opted for Southern Spain. So, questions for the more Spain-experienced among you... [more inside]

Travelling without laptop or tablet...

I'm considering travelling around Spain for 3 months and not taking my laptop or tablet, just my phone (Galaxy Note 5) and paper notebook. Everyone I've mentioned this to says I'm crazy and "should just bring in case", but when pressed cannot give a good reason why--"in case of what?" Not one person thinks this is a good idea. Are there any good reasons for worrying about travelling in another country (I'm Canadian) without a laptop? Also, any Android apps that might be useful for someone without a computer? Thanks!

Mediterranean Road Trip?

We're finally taking a trip to Spain--11 full days, with the idea of hitting at least Madrid, Grenada and Barcelona. But we've gotten it into our heads that it might be nice to road trip along the Mediterranean from Grenada to Barcelona rather than go back to Madrid and take the train. Is this crazy? [more inside]

Barcelona for xmas with a kid?

I'm thinking about going to Barcelona with my husband and our 11-year-old at Christmas time. We're interested in architecture, museums, food, and some low-key chilling out over the holiday.

Great restaurant in Madrid?

We have a long layover in Madrid on a Saturday night (March 11th) and need recommendations for an amazing authentic Spanish restaurant. Price doesn't really matter, as long as we can get a reservation, if needed. We're staying in the Hotel Villa Real, very close to the Museo Nacional Del Prado. If we could go somewhere walking distance from there, that'd be ideal! Thank you!

Unplanned day trip to Seville tomorrow--help, please!

My husband, our five-year-old, and I are vacationing in the Algarve, and we suddenly have a free day tomorrow to do whatever we'd like. We want to use the day to see Seville. However, we haven't had time to plan. What do we need to see? What do we need to avoid? What do we need to know about that I'm too tired to think to ask you about?

How to get the most out of San Sebastian over a rainy weekend

After years of raving about San Sebastian to my husband, we're finally going together for a 4 day weekend! I just checked the weather and it's going to be raining buckets. I was hoping for a lot of nice walks and hanging out in parks to work off the wine and pintxos but now that seems kind of unlikely. The aquarium seems like an option, but what else could we do? (Of course if you have recommendations on where to go for more wine and pintxos, do share!)
