Hey guys, summer is getting closer!
Ok, well i still have 2 ‘winter-hopefully-spring’ destinations to go in a very little while (Warsaw and London yuppppiiiii), but my mind is already thinking about summer, sun, vacation!
And even if in the last 3 years I’ve taken an insignificant amount of 7 days off… well, my job is like an everlasting amazing trip!
Spain is one of the destinations I mostly think abut when you tell me “Summer”. Together with Nice and Salento.
When Summer approaches my mind goes back to all my past Spanish trips, from my first Sangria during a Folk Music Festival (I was one of the performers) when I was 18, to my last Sangria in Maillorca, stepping through Barcelona, las tapas and the way this city changed my life.
But now I would like to give a rational order to my memories and make it become some tips for you and the Spanish places to go.
Where to go to Spain and when? Let’s see if my memories can create some good points for you!
Barcelona in Spring
Wait for Easter to go and book a flight to Barcelona.
Spring get fast there, you can even walk with no jacket and show the world your new spring clothes! I did it of course, even more so, I went there twice in a period when I was living in Milan and March was all but spring.
Barca was a soft fresh wind full of new energies and ideas. One of them, was to go back and live in a place where summer lasts longer. 😉
And there in Barca I tasted tapas for the first time and understood they were not just food but my future eating attitide (many differen delicious things with good wine or beer).
No need to tell you how much art is there in Barcelona! The patchwork will be a part of you! You’ll see how art can be somthing crazy and how crazyness is BEAUTY!
Maillorca and Veg food
I was in Palma de Maillorca in full Summer, where I found amazing night art events (such as the Nit de l’Art and the Jazz festival). And this wuld be a good reason to go there in August and even September.
But when I browse my pics of that period, the veg tapas cause me more nostalgia 🙂
Small hot (well… not too hot indeed) peppers called pimientos de padron together with patatas bravas and Tortilla, plus my beloved lilliputian “montaditos”, very small sandwiches are often well mixed with crazu experimental finger food. From past tradition and back to the future!
Walking down Palma’s boulevards and small streets and corners with your belly full and yous spirit full of… spirit (because of the wine) is a true Spain Experience!
When you go to Spain, expect to find crazyness and beauty. So, go there and be a part of it! Forever!
