“I would sooner be a foreigner in Spain than in most countries. How easy it is to make friends in Spain!” – George Orwell
As you might have guessed by now, Spain is one of my favourite places. I’m obviously quite biased as the love of my life is from Barcelona, but since my first visit to Spain in 2015 my love for this country has just grown more and more.
Catalunya is a wonderful place of the world with so much to offer. It has hundreds of medieval towns that hold so much charm. From Girona to Cadaques to Figueres… the adventure never ends.
Beyond Catalunya, I’ve travelled to numerous other areas of Spain. Spain is just such a vibrant, warm and beautiful country. You can find every landscape here. From the deserts of Aragon to the incredible city of Madrid, central Spain is also incredible. One of my most beloved memories is eating tapas here as this is the heart of small plates eating.
To celebrate the end of term some friends I travelled to Mallorca to enjoy the sea and sunshine. I can see why so many of my British comrades visit — it’s gorgeous, easy to navigate and has great food.
In Spring 2018, I travelled to the Basque Country to explore a completely different area of Spain. The history, culture, cuisine, language… everything is so distinct and yet I loved this area just as well. The charming towns and incredible geological features really just send you to a dream.
What’s even better is Spain really is a year-round destination. Climates and weather across the country vary from month to month so there’s never a bad time to visit.
