Spain Travel Guide

Spain Archives and Blog Posts

Say Hola to Spain!

We first visited Spain back in 2013, and it was love at first sight.

Since that first trip to Huelva, Seville, Granada, and Malaga, we’ve been back several times, each time finding ourselves in a different part of the country, like the lesser visited Costa Brava in 2015, and then smack dab in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona in 2016.

Spain is a country that deserves time and attention, and revisiting year-after-year. And we hope we’ll continue to go back for years to come.
