I did.12 weeks in Barcelona.

This city is worth every free minute you have.

What is it like there now, lockdown-wise?

This was eight years in the past, in 2014.

Which is better, staying at the coast or in the city? I prefer the coast myself, but is it worth it over there?

Staying in the city is very costly. But public transportation is excellent. If you want a fitting apartment or condo in the outer area, you gotta know sme, who can provide it.

Barcelona in 2014 was very popular and i believe it still is.

I haven't done it as often as I'd like to but the few times I have have been mixed. Once time was fantastic, got shitloads done, totally in the zone. Once I got fuck all done because too many interesting things to see and do and fucking around getting aircon working and waiting for room service and blah fucking blah...

The change of scenery really helps but you need to keep it simple.

Coffee is not your friend when you need to concentrate, it does the opposite and makes you hyper in random directions when you need laser focus

Good luck

How did you do this? What is the ideal location or circumstance for this?

It was a cheap-ass 'homestay' out of town with shitty internet but freezing aircon.

Nothing to do, except look at nice views and do some work.

I often find the real problem is I'm just unsure of certain things, so asking lots of questions - or sending the fuckers a form to fill in - can help a lot.

You need some motivation? Or your trying to get out?

I get a ton of shit done at my local library.

You need some motivation? Or your trying to get out?

Yes to both. And the local library is too dull and dreary a place to get work done. I can't get any motivation there.

Incidentally, have you ever thought about perhaps changing your username? Like something that doesn't make you come off as unbelievably hostile right off the bat? I mean, why?

I just like the name man. I appreciate the concern. I got the hostile naming attitude from Reddit.

Nope but before I retired I was on call every vacation I ever took after laptops came out.
