Before you even consider going to Spain, take a look at some of the beauty it has to offer first.
Literally my closest cousin and I were at home, on the couch and thought, what should we do this week? She said let's just go to Spain, so we made a leave within two days.
This was one of the most spontaneous things I'd ever done; she'd always travel but for me, it was the most amazing thing.
We stayed in the amazing place of Las Ramblas in Barcelona. This place is honestly one of the most funnest places to be; especially for young adults.
You can budget widely and stay at a budget hotel or grab a hostel, to crash in. You can find some really reasonable ones in the city, they are not all that bad.
The hostels are kept very clean and well maintained. We stayed in Plaza de Catalunya was very comfortable, clean and welcoming. You have your own bathroom, bedroom, lounge area and easy access to outside; so that was a bonus for us.
Getting around was very easy, we walked everywhere mostly because everything is literally on your doorstep and ever so close. Buses and taxi's are regular; transit is convenient also. I always loved looking up at the apartments, love those balconies; especially the ones with the flowers.
This main strip in Las Ramblas was made especially for people to walk and shop, no cars or traffic can pass through here.
Shopping streets are full of people and stalls everywhere. We were budgeting a lot but shopping is not that expensive, I guess you'll need to be mindful just as you would being back home. The locals are willing to bargain with you but not all the time.
You'll find many cuisines catered in Spain. The Spanish Paella and Sangria is very common. They have a wide variety of Italian and Asian cuisines as well.
An average pasta dish with a sangria drink cost about 20 euros plus tip (depending on where you dine) however there are tons of budget places, you just have to find them.
Street cafes and restaurants are plenty to choose from and if you can speak Spanish, makes it so much more fun guys.
This particular area in Plaza de Catalunya, there's always a lot going on. City shows, tours to pick you up. We spent about $120 on a tour throughout Spanish vineyards, lunch, tour and wine sampling were included, was amazing.
Spain usually has a moderate climate yearly, I would suggest it's at its nicest in the summer time and you can always go any time which ever best suits you.
The best part of Spain you're going to really enjoy is the Flamenco entertainment. I will never forget the beauty of the dresses, the elegance of the women and passion of the men; I have never seen such talent. Definitely visit a flamenco dance performance when you go to Barcelona, we caught one for about 30 euros each and the dance party was fantastic. You will be entertained with wine and appetizers, they truly treat you like royalty.
