The Authors

Barbara Riedel

I have been only once to Barcelona and unfortunately only for a long weekend. That’s why I collaborated on this project with my co-author Melissa to write the Barcelona Guide and give you the best possible insights. I created the City Guides for Digital Nomads and wrote most of them myself. Take a look at the others! You might also be interested in places other than Barcelona.

Melissa Otto

My journey as a nomad began in 2017. Before that, I lived in Barcelona for almost a year in a normal full-time office job. During this time I attended the first meetups and events about digital nomadism. Originally a freelance translator and author, I am now a project manager at Global Talent, an international freelance community.
In May 2018, I started my nomadic journey and now I call a small hand luggage backpack my „home“.
