2 week solo Spain trip

Jump to last reply

I'm a 27 year old guy who is taking a 2 week solo trip to Spain from October 2 until October 16. This is a bit of an escapist journey for me - a nice little break from my professional career to focus on some fun, photography, food, and sightseeing. Here is my itinerary:

October 2: Flight from Miami to Barcelona
October 3-7: Barcelona
October 7-10: Ibiza
October 10-12: Valencia
October 12-16: Madrid

I have hotels lined up for Barcelona and Ibiza, staying on La Ramblas and Playa d'en Bossa respectively. I still need to book hotels for Valencia and Madrid.

The only concrete plan I have so far is the Circoloco closing party at DC-10 in Ibiza on October 8th.

In Barcelona, I'd like to check out some art museums, do a tour of some Gaudi architecture, check out any cool shops (think SoHo in NYC), drink, eat, etc. In my downtime on Ibiza, I'd like to rent a scooter to explore the island and maybe take a day trip to Formentera. I need to start looking into what I want to do in Valencia and Madrid.

What would everyone recommend as to areas to stay within Valencia and Madrid? I like to be right in the middle of the action, in 'hip' areas you might say, and would prefer to spend around ~$100 a night or so.

I appreciate any and all tips, pointers, tidbits of advice, and the like that anyone can offer. If anyone has a similar itinerary and wants to possibly meet up for a beer or some tapas, I'm open to it.
