These days I’m getting itchy feet and I’ve been pondering lately where I’m thinking of going on my next big adventure. I’ve spent copious amounts of time in Asia and had an extended trip all over South America. I’ve travelled near home and half way around the world; however, I’ve yet to set foot in Europe and that’s almost embarrassing. Out of all the European countries I’m most interested visiting, few are higher on my list than Spain. I’ve just heard so many wonderful things about the country from friends over the years and there are many appealing aspects, such as the fact it’s quite a bit more affordable than many other Western European nations. The following are three places / things to do I’m just dying to visit Spain.
Architecture of Antoní Gaudí
I’m a huge fan of Antoni Guadi’s architecture. I find it’s one of the most unique styles in the world and I’d love to feast my eyes upon the La Sagrada Familia. Even critics who despise it often advise others to check it out. How can you go wrong with a place like that?
Check Out A Flamenco Show
Whenever I visit a country I want to absorb as much of the culture as I possibly can. When in Spain I would absolutely have to check out a Flamenco Show. It’s incredible that such a traditional form of music is as alive and well today as it has ever been. I can imagine myself going to more than just one show. For those looking to take in a show there are Spain Breaks with Drectline-holidays worth considering.
When I was travelling in South America I was just getting into photography for the first time and I only picked up a bit of Spanish at the time. I was totally obsessed with my camera and taking photos that I feel I missed out on a good opportunity. When I arrive in Spain for the first time, I plan on rectifying this situation by plunking down in a city like Barcelona and spending several weeks/months learning Spanish.
