Holidays in Spain


When the airplane brings me to Spain, these are the 11 things that I like to do:

1.    Throwing the handkerchiefs on the ground in a Madrid bar like the Spaniards.

2.    Greece is famous for its nightlife, but there is no comparison to what I experienced in the Spanish capital city! Does anybody stay home at night? Parks, streets and bars were more crowded after midnight than during the day!

3.    Taking the airplane from Barajas Airport to the Balearic Islands, or much better, to South America.

4.    Giving crumbs to the swans and ducks and hiring a pedal boat in the lake of the Retiro Park on a sunny Spanish day.

5.    A day excursion to Toledo for the landscape, the Toledo cathedral, and the El Greco paintings.

6.    Going out for the Tapas-Time or having a late-night dinner savouring Jamón Serrano, tortilla de patata, and paella while drinking Sangria!

7.    Stopping by a Churreria or Churro stand on my way back home after an evening of fun with the Spaniards.

8.    Trying to sing “Besame, besame mucho, como si fuera esta noche la ultima vez..” on a karaoke night in Barcelona.

9.    Visiting the Gaudí buildings in Barcelona and taking a lot of pictures.

10.    Going on a road trip on the spanish coast starting from Barcelona, driving through Valencia and at the end reaching Málaga.

11.     Having a Spanish course in Valencia and meeting other international people who try to speak in Spanish. You can search the internet and find out that there are so many interesting language courses. Believe me, it can be fun learning a language while having vacation in Spain.
Besos a todo los amigos en España. ¡Hasta la próxima!

    Hola! like your Spanish impressions from your recent travel to my country. They show a quick but precise view. And your photos are also very nice. Particularly interesting to me those you took in Mallorca, the place where I came to the world and saw the light for the first time. And what a beautiful light! As a Mediterranean girl, you know what I’m talking about. It looks that you also enjoyed Madrid, my current home. I love this city, and I agree with you that it’s one of the liviest cities in the world, if not the liviest one. This is really “the city that never sleeps”. Maybe Frankie (Sinatra) was wrong and it wasn’t New York, New York.

    I hope you enjoy life in Wien, and you decide to pay a further deeper visit to Madrid some day. There’s so much to see and live here!

    Saludos from a mallorquin-madrileño,

  • Muchas gracias Carlo!
