Would you guys consider Barcelona a good place to go solo? I've got a week to spend in Europe (starting on the 15th). I was planning to go to Ibiza but the last-minute ticket prices increased beyond what I was wanting to spend on a solo trip, and a hot gal convinced me to stay in Italy for my birthday. A few buddies told me Madrid was a better choice, but their opinions have failed in the past.
My goals for the trip consist of eating some good food, taking landscape photos, and drinking/partying when the sun goes down.
The food mostly sucks if you don't know where to go, so don't get your hopes up on that end. Barcelona has more to see than Madrid, in my opinion, and you can definitely spend a whole week just sightseeing/taking photos there. Also pretty good city to party, though if you're there alone it might be weird if you don't speak the language.
