Moving to Barcelona in 2 weeks!
Posted January 16th, 2013 - 5:27 pm by from Chicago, United States (Permalink)

After spending the summer in Spain and Morocco, I fell in love with Spain and decided to move to Barcelona! I finally just received my 'Youth Mobility Visa' which allows Canadians to live in Spain for up to two years (any other Canadians interested, feel free to ask me about it!).

Anyway, I would love to get connected to the CS group there and meet some people who want to practice Spanish/English. I can hold a basic conversation in Spanish but looking to become completely fluent. Also, if anyone knows of a good tennis club or plays tennis (I play at about a 4.5 level), that would be great.

OR if anyone just wants to hang out, feel free to send me a message! I'll be arriving on January 30th.

Ok talk soon and thanks!

Hi there fellow Canadian and welcome (soon) to Barcelona!

I'm not sure if you have a flat yet or not but my roommate is moving out at the end of the month and his amazing room will be available. Here's a link to the deets:


And even if not, drop me a line when you get into town. I don't know many Canadians here and I'd love to go for a drink and impart some of my knowledge about the city. I've been here 4 years and feel I know it pretty well inside and out by now.

Hey Iva,

I may be in need of a place... but I'm planning to stay with my boyfriend when I first arrive and haven't really decided whether I'm going to live with him or get my own place haha.

But anyway, I would love to meet up when I get there! I'll shoot you a message when I arrive and we can figure something out. Look forward to it!
