One advantage of nomadic living over tourism is that you can make the time to discover more.
We're here in Barcelona, and Amira is preparing for our Barcelona Experience 2017 event. Those preparations are both systematic and unsystematic.
The systematic planning involves countless hours researching, and also grilling friends and contacts in the city in search of Barcelona's most amazing food experiences. We then go there, meet people, try things and learn more.
The unsystematic approach involves walking around. This is my favorite kind, and we did this for about 8 hours yesterday. During this time, Amira had mapped out six or seven food places (restaurants, bars) and we checked them out. En route, we explored every interesting thing along the way. Sometimes a discovery leads to another which leads to another — for example, you find an amazing restaurant serving amazing bread. Then we find out where the bakery is, check it out, and learn about a new food visionary bakery doing amazing things. We get to know the baker, who introduces us to an amazing wine-maker we otherwise would never have discovered. Etc. Which is... amazing.
We've been doing this for years in Barcelona, having lived here several times for many months each time.
In any event, this wandering around process takes months in any given city. It's a lot of fun. But it's time consuming.
By the way, we still have spots open for The Barcelona Experience 2017! Join us!
