The Spanish people really know how to enjoy life, and you can’t help but to absorb and project this mantra yourself through every pore when visiting Spain.
This is a country that practically pulsates with passion, excitement and a zest for life. The Spanish are immensely proud of their history and their culture and it’s not hard to see why.
Relish the traditional architecture, the colorful street art, thin streets lined with beautiful flowers, sun drenched beaches welcoming the warm coastal waters and some of the most delicious food you could ever wish to taste.
There are so many different things to do in Spain but here are five experiences that undoubtedly stand out, but are they the right five? Over to you on that one, let me know what you think in the comments box below.
La Tomatina Festival, or festival of the Tomatoes, is 100%, without a doubt, the most fun you can have with food. EVER.
Every year, on the last Wednesday of August, the small town of Bunol, just outside of Valencia, holds the world’s biggest food fight.
Once a year, this town of 9, 000 people swells to almost 50, 000 in preparation for 1 hour of Tomato throwing craziness through the narrow, and soon to be bright red, streets.
The start and end of the festival is signaled by the firing of water cannons, and what happens in between is the stuff of childhood dreams.
One of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities that’s absolutely buzzing with atmosphere 24/7, Barcelona is interesting, fun and full of character.
Prepare to be spoilt with a huge selection of sights and experiences to explore from historic Gothic architecture (the biggest concentration in Europe no less), a beautiful sandy beach, museums, art galleries, delicious food and some of the best night life in Spain.
One of Europe’s best loved music festivals… drum roll please… Benacassim. Party on the beach and enjoy gigs from some of the biggest acts in the world, all while topping up your tan and enjoying a nice cold beer. There’s no boots required at this festival it’s flip fl0ps and sunnies all the way! It’s on 14th – 18th July 2016 so be there.
CAMINO DE SANTIAGO TREK
Trek through town and country, past vineyards, through quiet little Spanish villages and across large green hillsides as you make your way from one side of Spain to the other (or start in France if you really want to go for it).
Camino de Santiago is one of the largest pilgrimages in the world, originally taken by Christians wanting to reach the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, North West Spain where the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried.
However more recently it’s lost a bit of its religious significance and is more widely known, quite simply, as a trek which allows you to embed yourself right into the heart of Spain.
Constantly mentioned among traveler’s favorite places in Spain, San Sebastian is a beautifully authentic Spanish coastal town in the Basque region in the north of the country. It provides exactly what you’d hope from a Spanish city break, including one of the best city beaches to be found anywhere in Europe, as well as quaint little street cafes serving pinxos – a selection of tapas held together by a cocktail stick (yum!).
It’s thriving with cultural tit bits to digest at every corner, and somehow manages to perfectly balance the ‘typical’ with the unique providing a taste of Spain that will appeal to everyone. Particular highlights include the San Sebastian Film Festival and their International Film festival.
A cool little route that would really show Spain off in its full glory is from Malaga to Granada to Cordoba to Seville. These stops are all in the region of Andalucia, renowned for arguably the best tapas in Spain and where flamenco dancing was invented!
Malaga has more museums than any other city in Spain, from Picasso to cars and wine to archaeology. The restaurant scene is pretty damn good thanks to Michelin star chef Dani Garcia.
Visit the Alhambra in Granada, a complex of spectacularly sand-colored Moorish palaces sitting a top of a mountain over looking the city.
Don’t miss the Mezquita in Cordoba, one of the most famous buildings in the world, and originally one of the most important mosques in the world.
In Seville head to Alameda a haven of buzzing bars and Soho Benita for independent shops and galleries.
Delve head first into life in one of the most vibrant countries, by taking Spanish lessons. If you’re keen to learn the language then this is the way to do it in style.
You can decide to learn anything from 1 week to 1 year and you can also choose to stay in a modern apartment in the city or in local Spanish home stay.
With courses available in a range of cities including Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Seville and Malaga, this is a perfect opportunity to experience life as a resident of this extraordinary country, while gaining a skill (and experience) that will stay with you forever.coffee maker k cup stars and stripes forever composer blouson chiffon skater dress lush school trends lori hair jack haircut white fishtail dress with sleeves hair studios boise constellation of june full science haircut hair season trend great clips ammon stars and stripes forever movie 1952 design lifestyle best trends where fashion fashion in and out app astronomy new about science phase astronomy man trend haircut under $20 near upham street mobile al bohemian embroidered romper coffee times science diet recall 2019 night coffee 3 fashion six trends video science hairstyles for medium hair for girls india trending now youtube womens bikinis trending haircut plus wood low table trending in the world what isn't science american online stores for women's clothing science olympiad 2019 events division b hair styles for 2018 sony lifestyle what is your lifestyle pictures of scientific methods by science trending movies 2018 astrologist susan miller scientific method definition quizlet kinds celestial bodies starship enterprise number salon monica designs star haircut up trend real hair salon near me open now science what is it science week haircut net today's astrology transits work in cafe anderson bernstein gray my astronomy money lifestyle car science lifestyle club coffee care food fashion game for science what is uranus symbol coffee haven experience lifestyle process of science biology work science science buddies environmental projects child haircut 2 science lifestyle definition pdf coffee first messier club fashion what is it why coffee starbucks locations haircut names for female real trend india lifestyle after having a coffee coffee shops brooklyn new york what are the scientific methods before coffee dad haircut trends list outfit ideas with leggings trends in it iridescent silver and gold dress trending memes videos game on science higher lows chic & contemporary women's clothing age trends during haircut coffee group mountain ground coffee haircut good lifestyle sales electronics primer about trends trending now on twitter up with science coffee video police fashion city fashion astronomy trip jesus has left the game starship band wikipedia places to cut hair near me constellation o ring december trends coffee mugs with names lifestyle fitness trends for 2015 trending today on twitter fashion for him lifestyles of the rich and famous lyrics meaning gap to pyruvate lifestyles unlimited austin what is in fashion science of being what do science do foundation grounds st louis brotherhood of steel meme what zodiacs can i see at night modern coffee low table trend 21 best cafe south jersey haven coffee how science ladies cut and style four trends names of stars in the solar system first phase of star haircut one astronomy watch anoxia meaning stars in the sky now what is on fashion now study of stars and planets trending hashtags on twitter right now astronomy and astrology history astronomer beatty's hole msnbc science news trending shoes for men minerva planet symbol casual trendy outfit ideas my own fashion coffee table decor ideas how do you spell lifestyle haircut usa trending memes haircut style constellation musca the fly if it's fashion astronomy rock lifestyle keto pills have a coffee fashion show will's coffee coffee near me with wifi science olympiad wiki green laser pointer high power astronomy trending on twitter now casual expensive dress
