Sunscreen, shorts, sunglasses and beach towels, let’s go to Spain !
Let’s face it, what makes Spain so popular are its warm temperatures and mild weather all year long ! Enjoy the gorgeous beaches and their translucent water on the Southern Spanish coast. Nearby, Rafael Nadal’s home land is very culturally interesting : from the Barcelona Gaudi architecture to the Nazaries Palaces of the Alhambra of Granada and the volcanic archipelago of the Canaries Islands. You will need more than one trip to explore the country !
Before leaving, don’t forget to taste the traditionnel Spanish paella, absolutely delicious !
There are many national holidays and festivals all year long :
¡ Hablamos español !
Spain’s official language is of course Spanish. So if you took Spanish in high school, it’s your time to shine ! But don’t worry if you skipped Spanish classes, english is also widely spoken across the country.
Spanish 101 !
The official currency in Spain is the euro (€). So for you non European folks, better get a money converter on your phone so you can manage your expenses more easily.
Credit/debit cards are are accepted everywhere and ATMs are easily found. Just be sure to warn your bank that you are traveling so that they won’t block your card for suspect abroad transactions.
Traveling in Spain is best with a car. You will need to be at least 21 years old and have had your driver’s licence for at least one year. If you are younger than 25 years old, some car rental agencies might make you pay a “young driver’s” fee. If you are not a EU citizen, better get an International Driving Permit.
If you were wondering what side the steering wheel is on, it’s on the left side and Spaniards drive on the right side of the road.
