About Matt K
Lives in Barcelona, Spain
Since Sep 2014
25-34 year old male
Since 2010 I am living in Barcelona, Catalonia, and it became my home from the very first beginning. Barcelona is a very beautiful, safe, and inspiring city that it's really enjoyable for every kind of traveler. I enjoy playing beach volleyball right after work with my friends, and the endless things you can do all over Catalonia and surroundings.

Flea & Street Markets
Roller coasters, live shows loaded with action, and endless options for wholesome family fun, The Warner Bros. Park (south of Madrid) offers the full adrenaline works for kids of all ages. Prices may be high here, and some attractions may have seen better days, but for theme park lovers, this place ticks all the boxes.
With plenty of different gardens to explore and endless space (118 hectares) in which to run around, relax with a picnic and play all manner of games, this city center park is a great spot to escape to.
This square is the most famous and busiest place in the Spanish capital, and offers a constant stream of entertainment, whatever time you visit. You will find street artists every few steps, plenty of shops nearby, great people-watching opportunities, and of course the famous statue and symbol of Madrid: the bear!
One of the most famous clubs in the world! If your family is even slightly into football, then a visit to Santiago Bernabeu is a must. Explore the museum full of trophies, records, and memories from Real Madrid's long and successful history.
A trip to Spain simply isn't complete without a beach experience, even in Madrid! While not a conventional sandy beach, the Madrid Rio (situated alongside the river Manzanares) offers similar types of activities. Here you can cool off, ride a bike, or simply relax. There is even a special children's area with slides, zip lines, and more.
On the surface, this spot might seem a boring choice for children, but the Royal Palace never fails to delight friends with families that I take here. How often can you visit the home of the Spanish royal family?
This is one of the best places to sample a traditional Spanish breakfast. Try the 'chocolate con churros' and see how your children's faces light up after sampling this tasty combination of Spanish-style donuts dipped in thick, warm chocolate.
This is not just any market. Here you can eat a wide range of authentic Spanish foods, all freshly prepared just for you and your family, plus the hundreds of other visitors hoping to enjoy this delicious gourmet experience.
