Viva Espana - Barcelona y Valencia
I <3 Spain.
The land of paella, Gaudi, the Mediterranean, and Estrella damm lemon beer.
What's not to love?
In 2014 I was lucky enough to spend several weeks in Spain while my fiancé ran the Valencia marathon. The people were great (although their love of jamón took some getting used to), the cappuccinos are served with dusted chocolate, and the entire region is gorgeous.
We traveled in November, a far cry from the busy summer study-abroad season; it felt as though we had the cities to ourselves and concerns of pickpocketing were unfounded. I am so very excited to go back soon!
