    Hello all

    I had a chat with my mates today, and it seems that everybody is going to Spain in Easter!!

    I'm not saying that Spain is an awful place but i've been there once and it was nice and every thing...but it was a bit boring, the same people the same culture (not the same weather though:p: ).

    I mean what motivates you to travel? is it the weather, the culture or meeting new people and try new food (i know a guy how like travelling for that purpose ).

    for me, observing new culture is the main motive for travel.

    Boring??!

    I've never been to Spain, but I've read a lot about it. When I do go, I'll be avoiding Benidorm like the plague, and the rest of the Costa del Sol doesn't sound very nice either tbh.

    The places I'd love to go to are Barcelona, Madrid, Valladolid, Toledo, Seville, Málaga, Santiago de la Compostela, Pamplona, Granada, Cádiz, Salamanca, Tarragona, Caceres, Córdoba, Segovia Aqueduct, Bilbao... I love places that are historical, do have some good places to eat and drink but aren't very touristy, and have good museums, art galleries, old buildings, markets (whether food & drink, arts & crafts, books, clothes etc.), unspoiled beaches, natural wonders, opportunities for adventure sports ... obviously not too many places would have all of these, but any combination I'd love! There's a huge variety between different places in Spain, I'd definitely give it another go if I were you OP!

    I couldn't care less if there were a million british tourists, as long as there's sun and some peace and quiet (yeah a contradiction to the british tourists) I'm happy.

    I'm from Segovia by the way!! but it has many more things that the roman aqueduct!!
    Maybe you want to check the wikipedia article of this great medieval, unspoilt town.

    Have to have good reason to go and have a shed load of cash to go with it. Cousin has just gone with £40,000 from her parents to help her out, despite this she will accumulate debts of up to £50,000 just to acheive her Masters in Law.

    Barcelona is a very nice place to go, but i guess it would depend on tastes, if you dont like big hustle n bussle cities then stay away. It would also be a bit nicer if there was a good conversion to the euro, but these days there isnt and every thing costs a fortune (as i found out last easter )

    Madrid is nice too... went on a school trip so cant comment on some parts of it apart from the art galleries and museums. From what i can remember the picaso one (or which ever museum has 4 different looking wals from the outside) is good if your into ur art.. the palace is also a great place to look around (again if ur into that kinda thing)

    Toledo , again as part of the school trip we went to madrid, didnt see much of it but from what we saw it was beautiful... especially one of the main churches at the top

    All in all i like spain myself, just shame about the £ to euro

    I entirely agree with you, but comparing with other nations, say, Sri Lankans...we're the same!
