DISCOVER SPAIN

During this trip, my Mom came to visit me.We adventured to Madrid, Riojha, and Barcelona. We drove to each city and it was so beautiful to experience the views during autumn! 

Drink all the wine! Some of the best quality wines I have ever tasted! (Quality also means no hangover). 

Eat all the Croquettas and Tapas! No matter which one you try, you'll be sure to like it! I don't think we even ate a full meal since tapas is such a big part of the culture here.

Dance and have fun!

THINGS TO DO

We visited Rioja, Madrid, and Barcelona

  • As a rule of thumb while traveling, always visit the Town Squares/ Old Towns/ Downtowns!

  • Walk around Madrid and Barcelona for a few hours with no plan! There are so many restaurants, shops, galleries, etc to stumble upon. 

  • Visit the Royal Palace and the Plaza de Oriente Gardens that surround the palace in Madrid

  • If you love vintage shopping then you'll love shopping in Madrid!

  • Do winery tours in Rioja and really listen to what your guide has to say! We experienced what are now wineries that are in caves dating back as far as the 1400's! One of my top experiences! 

    • There are many wine caves that you can book a tour in! Book in advance because the popular ones fill up!​

  • Tour the La Familia Cathedral in Barcelona- A work of art!

  • Visit Guell Park in Barcelona and have lunch at a nearby cafe- The mosaics are beautiful and the actual park is pretty large to venture through with pretty views!

  • Go to an open mic night at a local dive bar. We stumbled upon one and had no idea what they were saying but had such a fun time!

  • Watch a Flamenco show. You can book dinner and a show at most places
