I'm a 20yo woman who will be spending 3 months in an apartment in Barcelona, Catalunya. I'm traveling alone.
I've arranged for a driver to pick me up from the airport and transfer me to my accommodation. Unfortunately, due to the holiday I will have a 1-3 hour wait (by myself) before an employee will be there with keys to let me into my flat.
(1-3 hrs depends on how long it takes for me to get my luggage/security/traffic/etc.)
I'll likely have one BIG suitcase, a carry-on suitcase, and a large bag with me. I'll arrive in the afternoon.
My question is-- What do I do during this wait? There are plenty of bars and cafes nearby, would it be fine for me to go sit in one with all that luggage? I also hear that Barca is notorious for pickpockets and whatnot.. and this may sound silly, but if I'm walking around with all those bags, is it likely for someone to make off with one of them?
What is your best-bet for the proper and safe way for me to spend this time?
Thank you so much for any tips or advice!
