Raul Fattore

Biography

Raul Fattore is a frequent traveler, a resident of Barcelona and former tourist advisor at the Barcelona Tourist Office.

Raul is the creator of the website Barcelona Budget, which was born to address the lack of practical, useful information available for the budget traveler. He realized that there are quite a lot of books and websites about Barcelona, but he noted that many of them contain inaccurate third-party information, while others are a jumble of unordered content which makes it practically impossible to plan a trip to Barcelona.

Raul addressed this lack not only on his website Barcelona Budget but also in an in-depth approach in his particular books, by providing the reader with valuable information, as well as savings tips and secrets from an insider point of view that the reader will not find anywhere else.

The books and eBooks created by him not only provide valuable information. They are also advanced Tourist Guides, which the reader can use during a visit to Barcelona.

When Raul is not advising visitors, you may find him strolling down the beachfront and enjoying sunshine, or visiting other places on the planet.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Before I go to bed, I check the weather forecast for the next day. Nothing inspires me more than a forecast showing that tomorrow will be a sunny day. I like to walk on the beach, enjoy the sunshine and gaze at the sea.

This is not only relaxing, but also a good source of inspiration for me. I usually get a lot of new ideas to write about. Simply put, I become more creative under such conditions.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing articles for my website and blog, as well as press releases in 2007. It was not easy at the beginning, because I had no previous experience as a writer. I quickly realized that It was not the same as writing a letter to a friend or the family. I was writing to reach millions of people out there with whom I wanted to share my experience and help them plan a visit to Barcelona without breaking the bank.

At the beginning, I really didn't know how to start, but it didn’t take me too long to learn how to do it and enter in the fascinating world of writing.
