Solo Travel

Spain is a beautiful country. The diverse culture, vibrant and fascinating and Madrid being the capital makes it the perfect reason why you should start your trip from Madrid.

Most visitors to Spain head to the big cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, Valencia, and Granada. Even though I loved every minute visiting all these beautiful places, I just fell in love with the beautiful North, Basque Country. In my opinion, northern Spain is the best side of Spain. The Food and the wine is different in the north to the rest of Spain. The rolling hills, the ocean, the Iberian Peninsula stole my heart.
