Barcelona Segway Tour: The best way to see the city?

In my opinion one of the best ways to see this popular Spanish city is on a  Barcelona Segway Tour. It was certainly my favourite activity during a blog trip to Catalonia, Spain 17 – 20 December 2009. I have to admit that I didn’t even know what a segway was before I read our trip itinerary.

I was feeling a bit nervous about riding on this self balancing two wheeled electrically powered mode of transport. However after a near miss with a wall during the initial training, I did get the hang of leaning forward to move forward, leaning back to reverse and standing straight to brake.

After getting used to riding the segway, I was even daring enough to take one hand off the handle bars to record a video with the other hand.
