Destination: Spain

 Summer is here!!!!!

In honor of this wonderful time of year,
 I am going to highlight some of my favorite Summer destinations this week.
Destination 1: 

:: Spain ::

Exactly one year ago, I was in Spain for my {future} in law's 30th wedding anniversary.

Spain is an amazing place. Filled with so much culture, food, architecture, history & beauty.

Here are some highlights from the trip:

Overlooking the Toledo, Spain countryside.

{Jamon} Signature ham from Madrid.

There were tons & tons of fresh flower markets everywhere!
 My future {M-I-L}, {S-I-L} & I were in heaven.

 Taking a rest in the Parque del Retiro, Madrid.

 Most famous style of eating throughout Spain: Tapas.

Over looking the Mediterranean Sea in San Sebastian, Spain.

 Mediterranean Sea in San Sebastian.

 Toledo, Spain.

 Check out the beautiful wild flowers I found on the side of the street! 
I was obviously overly excited about them.


Spain Travel Tips:

:: We went to Spain for a total of 10 days. We flew in & out of Madrid.

:: We stayed in three different condos (Madrid, Barcelon & San Sebastian) Staying in a condo while on vacation with a large group is the best way to go! It is very cost effective & allows for both quite time & family time whenever you want!

:: We rented a van & drove everywhere. Learn stick shift.

: Our route was as such - Madrid, Toledo, Barcelona, Pamplona, San Sebastian, Las Riojas & Segovia.

:: My favorite city in Spain {by far} was San Sebastian. It is located on the North Eastern tip, only 20 minutes from France. The entire city is shaped in a crescent around the Mediterranean Sea.

:: Most of the food is in the form of Tapas: small appetizers. Order a lot!
