Traveling to Spain for 8-10 days

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It's that time of year again when summer travel plans start to take shape.

I went to Paris with my SO last May and it was fantastic - 9 days.

This year is Spain. I've been to Spain only 1 other time - around 5 years ago and I spent about 4-5 days in Barcelona and another 3-4 days driving up and down the La Costa Brava coast. I have cousins in Barcelona so that was nice to spend time with them.

This year I'd like to explore the north a bit - San Sebastian and a couple other basque areas where my family hails from are tops of my list. Outside of that, I'm fair game. Sevilla, Madrid, Salamanca, etc.

Thoughts? I would probably go in June.

The NY Times had a pretty interesting writeup on Toledo last month that you should check out. Definitely looks like a neat place. I've only been to Barcelona myself so I don't have firsthand experience in Toledo.

I've been to most of the major cities in Spain and I loved Toledo and Sevilla.

Madrid is especially hot in the summer, so you may notice a lot of Madrileños in other parts of the country. Cantabria and Asturias to the west of Basque Country are especially nice. When its not raining summer weather is very comfortable - nice beaches that aren't packed like the Costa Brava. The mountains of the Picos de Europa contrast with what you'll see throughout the rest of Spain. The lakes that form in some of the valleys reminded me of Switzerland. Very nice! I can't recommend this part of Spain enough.
