Spain was our last leg of another successful and wonderful lifetime experience trip that we had. Every travel brings me memories, new way to look at things and endless fun and joy that we experience where ever we go. We love to do this as often as possible, try new places, eat local food and just to be there gives me utmost fun and satisfaction. WE LOVE TRAVELING.....
Spain 🇪🇸 is an experience and it’s a must do if you want an outstanding travel experience. Spain present travelers with a unique experience Unlike other European countries. It’s the only Spanish speaking county in Europe and offers mount watering food for meat lovers. Ham, Cheese and Meat is abundant and it’s everywhere.
Spaniards enjoy being outdoors. You can see that in the restaurant culture in Madrid. They love to hang out and have a cup of coffee or wine and chit chat and enjoy the outdoor fun. One can be in the city center of Madrid and enjoy the cafes or enjoy the numerous Roof top bars that the city offers.... its all fun fun and endless fun...
Zindgi Na Milega Do Bara movie opened up the world of Spain to Bollywood fans and that’s how I started to travel to Spain and it’s our second Spain experience. To me SPAIN 🇪🇸 IS A COMPLETE PACKAGE..... it’s a meat lovers paradise and a gateway that connects the Latin American countries with Europe.
Spain history backs to many many years and the architecture in Spain is a mix of Roman, Muslim and a lot of Portugal 🇵🇹 influence as well... Madrid’s Royal Palace is one of an outstanding place in Europe. Pictures are only allowed to be taken In the entrance. However there are about 2000 rooms in the palace with extraordinary display of the items that the Kings used. No one are allowed to take pictures.
While Barcelona is the biggest attraction the real Spanish experience can be felt in cities like Madrid and small towns like Toledo, Sevilla and Granada...
Madrid airport is one of a kind of airport. It’s clean and huge airport which is very well organized. Like other European cities the center of Madrid called as Porta Del Sol offers travelers with shopping, architecture, cafes, bars and restaurants when one can experience authentic Spanish food, Tapas and Sangria ( a wine 🍷 drink with lots of fruits) in it.
Tapas which is small potion size appetizers are famous in the bars. You can select few tapas and enjoy the drink with the local. The life is very different. Everyone likes to eat out and hang out. The weather also cooperate the life style of Spaniard.
Ham is one of the staple food in Spain. Depending upon the quality a Kilo of Ham ranges from 75 Euro to 350 Euros. It’s kind of weird to see how the Ham legs are hanged In the cafes. However if you eat Ham and cheese Spain 🇪🇸 is the place to be.
The true experience of Spain will be experienced in small towns like Toledo. We travelled to Toledo in a local bus which took about one hour to reach. Toledo is a 900 year old town and it offers a true Spanish old town experience.
The speciality of the town is there is not one building that is new. All buildings are few hundred years old buildings. It’s nice to walk in the century old roads, have a nice Spanish lunch and stroll in the old city. The city has a nice castle and the oldest cathedral in all of Europe.
The other thing that you can do while in Madrid is experience the Flamingo dance and the Bull fight. Bull fight happens every Sunday and you have to book the tickets well in advance. Flamingo dance 💃 is local to Spain 🇪🇸 and there are various Flamingo dance cafes where you can watch the show and have a nice Spanish dinner.
For beach 🏖 experience there are world class beach resorts across the coast which is just 2 hours by train. Costa Brava, Costa del sol, Alicante offers world class beach towns With touch of Spain in them.
It’s a shopping heaven and there is a lot of street shopping for those who like to just wander around and have a good time.
