Spain is a country that deserves every bit of attention. Here, you will meet diversity every step of the way — starting with the big cities in the South, the sunny islands, even the sky-high mountain regions. In Spain, you will find beautiful sceneries, but also extreme climate changes. Every city is very different: It has unique colours and you can feel the cultural differences; some are urbaner, others a bit more practical.
The fiesta in a city or town is something common and appreciated by all locals. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in different festivals, religious or not, that will make you feel like you’re part of the community; drink with the locals, eat with them and dance — simply put, feel good.
The first visit in Spain
Another recommendation is to choose the small wild beaches, especially in towns like Valencia, Alicante, Girona, Santander, San Sebastian or the other ones in the South.
Do you travel light? If not, you should consider it. Choose a few clothes and comfortable shoes — you will thank us later! Eating in Spain is a bit unusual for people from the North. Spanish like to eat pretty late. Make an exception from time to time and eat, like them, after eight o’clock in the evening. Visit a local restaurant and enjoy the atmosphere.
Food, drinks and people in Spain
The City of Arts and Sciences is a well-known landmark in Valencia and also one of the best examples of modern European architecture.
A bold mixture of modern architecture, a booming cultural scene and the charming city centre make Valencia a city with potential. In one week, we tried to get a taste of this city as much as possible.
Important squares enriched with history, buildings, people, life, the authentic lifestyle of the locals; squares, in which we sat on a bench, savoured churros and smiled to unknown people passing by in Valencia.
