One month (ish) in Spain

Jump to last reply

So I'll be coming into some cash in the spring and I've always wanted to visit Spain. I'm still a student so I'll be leaving after the winter semester (which ends late April) and I want to be home by mid-June at the latest.

Not including airfare, I'll be budgeting about 4000 Canadian dollars (about 3650 American, 2760 Euros). I think a train pass should cost me between four and six hundred dollars. That gives me $3400 to $3600 to spend five-ish weeks in Spain.

I really, really like my wine, and one of the big reasons I want to go to Spain is because some of my favourite wines are Spanish. I speak a small amount of Spanish and I'm fluent in French, if that will help.

I don't need to eat out at all. I'd like to have a couple of Tapas meals, and other than those, I'll be eating grocery store sandwiches and drinking Macdonald's coffee the entire trip. I'm also planning on staying at the cheapest hostels I can find, and wherever possible, couchsurfing.

What can't I miss? Will that be enough money? What is the best region for cheap wine? Are there any good festivals to check out?

Any info would be fantastic! Thanks in advance.

Dan
