Spain is a beautiful, dynamic and cultural country, and not to be missed on your trip around Europe. The hustle and bustle of the two major cities: Madrid and Barcelona are so different in character and hold many unique and different interests for travellers. To the North you have the Basque Country, which is home to beautiful landscapes and rural villages. In addition, take a quick trip to the Canary Islands to work on your tan. Furthermore, head to the Balearic Islands including Ibiza, Menorca and Mallorca for some of the best parties in the world.
Home to Fiestas and Flamencos, Spain lives very much in the present and life itself is a fiesta here. Yet everyone seems to be invited. A country with music in its soul, a love of fine food and wild landscapes, and a special talent for celebrating all the good things in life, Spain is a unique beautiful country that we have come to love.
In addition, there is little serious crime in Spain, but stayed alert in major cities, especially Barcelona for pickpocket theft. At night don’t walk on a street where you are the only one, and make sure they are well lit.
