Live the F1 in Barcelona

This weekend will take place in Barcelona Spain’s Grand Prix. If you like Formula 1 races you should attend either to the practices, the qualifying or to the race itself.

The experts say that it will be a really interesting race due to the high rate of passing cars outside the DRS zone. And the Ferrari has improved its aerodynamics, so it seems that the competitiveness between Ferrari and Red Bull will grow.

Montmeló circuit its located outside Barcelona but there’s a short train trip that gets you to the circuit. And there’s only a two minute walk to the train station from Equity Point Centric Hostel!!

Sonar at Barcelona, live the music

Equity Point Hostels WYSTIC Party

WYSTICparty

This year’s WYSTIC annual conference is taking place in Barcelona, our home land. So we decided to host a huge party at Equity Point Centric terrace. Later we took some busses and went to Shoko, a club close to the beach.

We had a great time eating, drinking and hanging out with everybody, so here you’ve got some pictures. It’s nice to meet year after year the same people and have fun with them at the same time we’re doing business.

Today it’s WYSTIC last day, but we’re already willing to go to San Diego next year. Will you meet us there?

In the next few days there will be huge parties all around the world celebrating the Gay Pride. The main day is the 28th of June, which commemorates New York’s Stonewall riots on 1969, which started all the gay activism as we know it.

Gay Parades are different at each destination but all of them are full of joy, glam and glitter. If you want to attend to any of them, remember you can find the perfect accommodation at Equity Point Hostels at each of the cities.
