I am from the UK and studied [Castilian] Spanish in school. Having just come back from travels in South America, I'd like to go to Spain to take some lessons, try and improve my fluency and just soak up life there for a bit before trying to settle down into work at home.

I've spent some time reading previous threads on here and other articles online, and have settled on Madrid as a safe option, considering the people have more 'textbook' accents and do not predominantly speak another language…

I am interested in hiking from village to village in the picos de Europa. Can you recommend 3-5 day treks that are not too strenuous, like about 3 -5 hours a day.

Hello,

We will travel for 2 week from Biarritz to Bilbao and then to Barcelona (Pamplona, Ordessa, Sierra de Guara, ...) with a camper and two kids (7 and 9 years old).
Can anyone help me with:
- what can't we miss with the kids
- nice hikes who are not too difficult
- places to stand with the camper, nice campings in the area?
- canyoning with the kids: where and with which company?

Thanks in advance!!!

Greetings,

Fuut

Does anyone know how crowded Barcelona gets for La Merce festival (around September 24)? Do many people come from out of town into Barcelona for the weekend? Would it be a fun time to be there or is it a headache -- are hotels booked out, restaurants and museums very crowded, etc? Is it family-friendly or more like a huge, loud party 24/7 (we have a baby)?
Similarly, how crowded does San Sebastian get for the Film Festival (September 22-30)? We were planning to go there that week but I am…

Hello,

I haven't been to Tarifa in a while and would like an update from fellow travelers on good restaurants. When I used to go there on a regular basis, my favourites were :

  • Casa Juan (specialized in ham and pork)
  • La Mandragora
  • La Sacristia
  • La Casa Amarilla
  • El Ecocenter
  • El Berebar (on the Playa de los Lances)

Are they still as good as they used to be ? Otherwise, do you have any places to recommend (preferably local food, of course) ? I've had a look on TripAdvisor but…

Hello

I am a Canadian living in Spain on a Youth Mobility Visa. I found employment but was told I could not be hired because I do not have a work permit.

Has anyone experienced this before? I called the Canadian Consulate and was told that I do not need a Visa.
Thanks,
Georginne.

Hello,

Me and a friend are planning a trip in Andalusia in the beginning of September, for about 10 days. Our rough itienary is;

Granada (2 days)
Cordoba (1 day)
Sevilla (2 or 3 days)
Malaga (2 or 3 days)
Cadiz (not sure, maybe 2 or 3 days)

Because our time is limited, we would like to plan every single detail in advance. We are considering the "rent a car", "train" and "bus" options.

What suggestions would you give me about travelling between these cities? Our concerns are;
- We prefer to rent a…

I'm going to Spain for 3 months // 90 days (maybe even a few days less than 90) to be an au pair for a wonderful family starting August 22nd, 2017 until November 15th (around then). I have no intention of staying for longer than the initial 90 days, I'm a twenty-three year old girl...will I need a return ticket in order to enter the country? I've read so many different things and I'm so nervous because I have…
