Espana Por Favor!

This post will be updated as new information comes in. Social gatherings, tips and tricks on local places, Veeam announcements (off course), Spousetivities!, …

let me start with a big cheer for Crystal Lowe (@Crystal_Lowe / @Spousetivities). She does a hell of a job organising this thing. We suspect that she even runs a bigger show than her husband Scott Lowe. For the first time at this event I am very proud that my wife (@LynnStruylaert) will join me and with that Spousetivities.

Planned activities:

  • Dali Tour – Tuesday, October 9
  • Barcelona Tour – Wednesday, October 10
  • Montserrat and Cava Tour – Thursday, October 11

#vBrownBags is an independent community of technology specialists that share knowledge. If you ever want to go after VCAP certification for example, you definitely need to subscribe to the #vBrownBags podcast.
I am very proud that #Veeam is sponsoring #vBrownBag to come to EMEA. We did it before at VMworld US but this one will also give the European people some possibilities to share knowledge. And guess who has scheduled a session on Wednesday octobre 10th at 14.45PM? Yours truly!

Touristic tips:

  • every foodlover should at least have visited la Boqueria once, the covered food market on the side of the Ramblas.
  • If you love Gaudi and you want to enjoy his weird architectural inventions I have a few for you. For a stroll in the park you should visit Park Guell. You could do the entire park in an hour or 2 without being in a hurry. Ideal place to go if you are leaving a day later to cool down.
  • I know it is the most cliche building in town but if you have never visited the Sagrada Familia, you will regret yourself going home without visiting it. Make sure you are smart  when you go because you will encounter long waiting lines. Interesting fact: this church is in construction for 130 years now. This is because it can only be funded with money the community raises (so no sponsorships or subsidies).
  • Want to have a birds eye over the town and the harbor? Take the Port Cable Car (teleferic) from the harbor to Mount Montjuic.
