Next week I’m off to Barcelona for work. It’ll be a busy week, supporting clients at an industry event during the day, networking in the many bars and tapas restaurants in the evening. I’m not going to pretend that it’ll be terrible.

I'm only going to a work event, nothing more exciting unfortunately.

What I’d like to do while I’m there though is make time for a swim.

So, can anyone recommend any good pools to swim in? I’m staying very central, so something close to the centre and La Rambla would be good, but equally, I’ll have a metro card.

But, if anyone reading this is in Barcelona and will be around for swim (I’m aiming for around Sunday lunchtime, possibly Wednesday morning too) then do let me know.

British Culture

Over the last few weeks there have been a few things running around my head about that I want to discuss. You may not be interested, but I’m going to write some posts about this stuff anyway.

There are three key areas of British culture that I’m no longer comfortable with; three areas that I think we, as a nation, need to seriously reconsider. Three areas that I think stop us being a great nation and stop the citizens of Britain from fulfilling their own potential.

They are:

– Drinking
– Driving
– Working

In all three cases I think we have got our cultural “norms” out of kilter with what they should be and I think we need to recalibrate those norms.

More to follow…
