Out of all the European countries, I've traveled most extensively in Spain. Seville is still one of the top 3 trips I've ever been on and I never stop dreaming of returning to Barcelona. Spain compared to most of Western Europe is surprisingly affordable too!

Sunny Spain with it's warm nights and warm people truly lives up to it's reputation. Locals are incredibly welcoming and will not only take the time to explain how to get to your next destination in detail but will often take it upon themselves to guide you there personally. With a temperate climate pleasant days turn to pleasant nights alive with rich night life that in the cities quite naturally continues into the wee hours of the morning. Delicious food is in abundance, the cities are packed with restaurants and the restaurants are always packed with people. Spain is much more affordable than the countries in to the north so it is a great destination for budget travelers and backpackers alike. The history in Spain is rich and unique and varies greatly by region.

Spain may not be as popular with international tourists as France and Italy, but it can compete with both countries in terms of wealth of cultural, natural and historical sites. With 2 world class cities in Madrid and Barcelona, along with a wealth of history ranging from the Romans to the Islamic Conquest to later Catholic kingdoms, Spain is full of interesting places to visit. There are great beaches, beautiful mountain parks, and of course some of the best food in the world. What ever you want Spain has it.

Spain is a very beautiful state with strong tradition and really charming and fascinating cities. I haven't visited it all yet, however I went I've visited the most important cities and had quite a long trip in Andalusia. The things I mostly aprreciate about Spain are the wide lanscapes of Andalusia, the great sense for music, dancing and traditions, the capability of innovating and the warmness of people.

Spain is Italy's naughtier cousin. While both countries offer sun, warm, welcoming people, and great history, Spain has a sort of wildness that genteel Italy cannot approach. Tapas bars, smoky restaurants, late nights, and an atmosphere so relaxed that nothing seems to truly matter, plus the opportunity to take in some Picassos and flamenco dancing-that sums up Spain for me. A quirky, charming, creative and very very fun place to have a holiday.

Of the 53 countries I've traveled to, Spain is right up in there in the top 10, if not top 5. The Spanish lifestyle of work hard (well, kinda) and play hard (very), made for many a night that didn't end until the sun was peeking out from the horizon. And while I do love Barcelona, if I had to choose between north or south, I'd chose the cool, wet and green mountains of the north (the Basque country in particular holds a certain sway over me till this day), over the packed beaches of Cataluna with its captivating joie de vivre that seems to permeate even the most desolate corners of this fascinating European country.

Spain is one of the most fascinating countries that I have ever been too. Of course, I'm biased given my maternal grandfather was born in LaCoruna, Galicia. The town was the launching point in 1588, of the great Spanish Armada, that sailed out of the LaCoruna harbor on to it eventual destiny with history. As many of you know, the Armada met the hated English in the English Channel, and the English won the day forcing the Armada to retreat. As it was heading back, it hit a storm and many ships were lost, with sailors swimming to the Irish shores never to return to Spain. These Spanish seaman were the black Irish of popular lore.
Whether you visit Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, Granada, Toledo, et. al., you will be swept away by their majestic beauty, their history, and the friendliness of the Spanish people.
