You can also find a free newspaper called Barcelona Metropolitan (www.barcelona-metropolitan.com). Some of our members get it monthly at The Philharmonic (Carrer Mallorca 204).

September 2010 activities: Trip to Dublin

We are organising a short stay in Dublin (2-3 days). This happy event will take place at the end of September or the beginning of October.

Let us know if you want to come!

August 2010 activities: The Secret Lives of Pippa Lee (at Renoir Cinema)

This month's film was "The Secret Lives of Pippa Lee" directed by Rebecca Miller.

As always we talked after watching the film, there were very different opinions about how interesting (or boring) the film is. The debate was held at the cinema's premises (they have a cafeteria).

Suggestions about the September's films are welcome!

August 2010 activities: BCN tour

For those of  you who attended the Barcelona Tour and want to send your photos, please do it right now, we can't wait...

Vincent, our Dutch member gave us a tour visiting the main "Expo 1888" spots. It was very interesting. Comparisons between the Fontana di Trevi in Rome and the fountain in Parc de la Ciutadella attracted a lot of comments.

Thanks Vicent!!!

Welcome to the blog!

The IELTS.adventure group was born about a year ago, the idea was to improve our skills in English but the group became a meeting point for travellers, ex-pats and people interested in global trends. Some of the members of IELTS.adventure have started this new project.

Just keep enjoying!
