But don’t worry: for this walking tour of Barcelona, we’ve tapped 3 Barcelona experts to create the perfect self-guided tour, complete with insider tips, photo ops, and tons of history and culture (and food).
Two things usually come to mind when people think of Washington DC: 8th grade field trips and government buildings. Anyway, those are the two things that came to our guest poster’s mind when she decided to move to the United States capital for a new job.

Spending over a year here has turned that perception upside down. Washington DC is buzzing with nightlife, street festivals, crazy psychedelic art exhibits, and more. And yes, it’s literally full of young professionals who are ambitious, passionate, and energetic. Here’s how to discover the city like a local – everything you need to know for your trip to Washington DC!
