Lorene's Barcelona Experience Plus Gift Giving Ideas for the Travel Agent

Podcast Number One-hundred-thirty-two

Lorene is back from her Mediterranean cruise and pre and post stays in Barcelona. Lorene talks about her experience in Barcelona and the amazing Gaudi architecture. You can see photos and obtain a lot of information about Barcelona at I am ready for a trip to Barcelona after hearing Lorene's experiences in Barcelona and seeing pictures on the above website and some of Lorene's photos.

Lorene was greeted by Gaston Magrinat of the Barcelona Experience tours. Gaston took Lorene and Gayle on a bicycle tour of Barcelona. Gaston really focuses on a personal experience for the traveler. Gaston's company is one you should put in your list of suppliers and use his services when you have clients traveling to Barcelona.

A Chicago Tribune article lists several excellent gift ideas for the person who loves to travel. Barry talks about these items and how many of the items will make excellent gifts for clients. In the co-hosted segment Lorene talks about a great gift idea, the knapsack travel blanket. You can find the blanket at Lug Travel.

Barry adds another gift idea that is described as the "Physicians' Desk Reference" for travelers. The idea is the book is just as important to travelers as the "Physicians' Desk Reference" is to physicians. This book should be on the shelf of every travel agent as an important reference tool. The book is, "The Complete Travel Detective Bible: The Consummate Insider Tells You What You Need to Know in an Increasingly Complex World!" The book's author is Peter Greenberg. Peter Greenberg has traveled to more than 146 different countries, he is the travel editor for NBC's Today Show and he has authored many best selling books.

Hi guys, Barcelona Tourist Guide isn't the only travel guide to BCN! Check out this - IMHO slightly better - one:
Gaudi is certainly the man who left the biggest imprint on the city and you can read about his life and works here:
Best wishes from Barcelona!
