Barcelona: An easy weekend trip from Switzerland

Living in Switzerland is great from the standpoint that it's truly in the center of Europe. Nothing is further than 2 hours by plane in Europe. One good example is Barcelona. From Basel, it's 1 hour, 20 minutes by plane. And Easy Jet flies there, so it's cheap besides. We bought tickets on a whim last October for last weekend, and the flights were SFr 95 each for a roundtrip.

If that isn't reason to escape Switzerland for awhile, I don't know what is.

It's especially great if you've been craving sunlight during a dreary Swiss winter. And as a bonus, you can enjoy reverse price shock, when you realize it still really is possible to have a dinner for two for 20 Euros in some places in the world.

More on Barcelona soon.
