Hey all, I am planning a trip to spain and only spain. I went around europe last summer (dublin, barcelona, paris, amsterdam, london, wales), and spain was my favourite climate / scene / culture. I was in barcelona last year, but want to explore the rest of the country in more detail.
I will be more than likely flying into ibiza from london to party for a couple days, then likely fly into valencia from there, stay a few days, but where to go after is up in the air. The trip has no concrete time frame, but it’s likely to be around 2 weeks, maybe 2 and a half in late august. It’s not so much planning how long to stay in places that i need helpt with, as I have a little experience with that from last year. My question (for people who have been around spain) is whether to go south and visit granada, seville and southern area’s i’ve heard great things about, or to head north through madrid possibly to bilbao, san sebastian etc etc. I want to hop from cities every 2-3 days, covering what i can. But to get a general idea of the trip i will plan I am trying to figure out wheter to head north or south. I know, both areas are great in their own ways, but any help in me making this decision would be amazing. My primary interests are partying, beaches n ocean (i know, less of this up north), and archietecture. I don’t mind hiting some non-touristy area’s, infact wouldnt mind that at all (minus ibiza and valencia obviously ). Travelling will be more than likely by bus at night (hopefully) to save money on accomadation / not waste time during the day travelling.
Any advice from people with knowledge / experience about spain would be more than awesoem.
