Spain

Having to travel quite often as a young boy, my life has been very eventful. Many exciting things have happened and I have enjoyed every bit of it. One of the most memorable moments in my life was when I traveled to Barcelona, Spain in 2012.

Spain is has a very rich culture and so many amazing places to visit, that it took me 15 days just to travel through the region of Catalunya that is located in North east of Spain.  Having to live and travel in Europe, I recommend Spain as one of the first destinations.  Here are some of the places and activities that I recommend in the Catalunya region.

  • Barcelona:  The capital of Catalunya and the second largest city in Spain after Madrid.

  • Sagrada Família: A large Roman Catholic Church in Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The church is one of the most amazing and magical places I have ever visited.Sagrada Familia a
  • Camp Nou :  known as The new camp, in English and home to FC Barcelona, is one of Europe’s biggest and most popular soccer stadiums.  Visiting this stadium meant a great deal to me, as I have been a big supporter of this club since early ages.CAMP-NOU
  • Montserrat: a mountain top monastery in Catalonia. Located on top of an unusual rock mountain, it is very popular among Catalans, and Catholic pilgrims come from far and wide to see the Black Madonna.monserat
  • Girona: is an ancient town several thousand years old in Catalonia. Also, home of most popular Spanish wineries. Girona is also home of CAVA, which is a sparkling wine from grapes that only grow in this region of the world.wine tasting Gironaunderground wine caves
  • Sitges: a beautiful city by the Mediterranean Sea, Sitges offers amazing views from the beach. Sitges is also home to Casa Bacardi that is the home of founder of the Bacardi Company now turned into a museum and lounge.

These places are the ones that I found most interesting and intrigued by. Of course, there are hundreds of other places in Catalunya that are just as amazing and must be visited.

  1. I really enjoy reading your page. In my opinion, many people don’t travel or take vacations often enough. And when they do take vacations, they often bring work along with them, which is keeping them essentially still in the work mindset they are trying to escape. A good vacation can help us to reconnect with ourselves; operating as a vehicle for self-discovery and helping us get back to feeling our best.

    Every summer I try to travel and spend as much time as possible because enjoying life with loved ones can keep relationship strong, helping you enjoy the good times more and helping you through the stress of the hard times. In fact, vacations are essential to improve your academic and job performance.

    I am sure that you have experienced psychological benefits that have increased your quality of life that have come with all your frequent travels.

  2. First, I want to start by saying, you are extremely lucky that you had a chance to travel as much as you did. I have never even been in a plane! I have traveled very short distances, it does not satisfy the hunger I have for traveling and seeing new places.
    I hope that after I finish school I will be able to travel to different parts of the world. Europe is definitely on my list, in particular, Spain. The beaches, culture, and food seem so amazing I’m impatiently waiting until I get to go! The list of places you put up will help me travel, let’s hope I don’t go 10 years from now! Did you ever travel to Ibiza? I heard it’s a great island.

  3. Spain is some were I have wanted to travel since I can remember. I have yet to travel Europe and that’s something that i’m going to do within the next couple of years. The Ideal person I would want to travel with would be my girlfriend. She and I have very similar interests and desires so i think she would be the ultimate traveling partner. I know Spain is known for its food and thats exactly what me and my girlfriend are about.

    Spain is such a beautiful and awe inspiring place. I myself havent had personal experience there but from what iv’e heard its amazing. My friend said that Spain is also know for its shopping. It would be very interesting to see what different fashion and or style they have over there.

  4. Spain is a beautiful country. I have wanted to travel to Europe for many years now. Everytime, I want to make the trip, my traveling companion has chosen a different place instead. Based on the reviews I have read, people say the food is authentic and taste very good. My son and I once again are discussing an European vacation, and would like to see much of what Europe has to offer via the Euro Rail. Of course, it would take some planning and money to make this happen. The pictures are beautiful, they make me want to pack my bags today, hop on a plane and go to visit this lovely country. Thanks for sharing your travel experience with us. The barrels of Bacardi looks very enticing.
