Hi Júlia, please introduce yourself.

I am a 28-year-old girl from Barcelona, passionate about traveling and finding cool addresses everywhere I go. I founded OUTLIERS GUIDE, where I curate places to stay around the world.

What are some brands you've recently spotted?

B3TTER. Healthy snacks with cool branding. I am a huge fan of their nut bars but I’ve recently tried the granola and it’s amazing.

Hemper makes accessories from hemp. The project was born in Nepal and they still make their products together with local communities and artisans of the country.

Project Lobster. Really cool eyewear brand.

BOBO CHOSES. Colorful and fun sustainable brand from Barcelona.

Marset. Design lamps made in Barcelona. I love that most of their designs are very colorful.

What do you think makes up the perfect vacation accommodation?

Design, comfort, location, breakfast and the people who work there.

What are the top five hotels on your current travel wishlist?

Adrere Amellal (Egypt), Jardin Des Biehn (Fez), Jobner Bagh (Jaipur), Stamba (Tblisi), Pardini’s Hermitage (Italy).

What else is in your current rotation?

I’m always looking for new spots in Barcelona and Spain. I'm eager to discover my own country even more.

Who are some spotters in your community who you look to for new things?

Irina Rifavila, Nuria Val, and Alan Díaz
