Trip Report Some final thoughts about my Spain trip

Jump to last reply

It's been a few days of hell workwise coming back after my trip but just wanted to post some final thoughts on my trip. I still haven't got used to American coffee or the coffee at work-how I miss my cafe con leche. The only bad cup of coffee in Spain was at Barajas airport. I also miss eating later as 7pm here is considered late and there's no way I could walk around my town at 10:30-11pm alone like in Spain. Sadly, my Spanish skills are also fading through non-use.

Most cherished memories-walking through the side streets of Granada, Toledo and Seville seeing the real life of the town behind the tourist attractions. Walking around the Alhambra at 9am watching the light hitting the brick and stone buildings and looking out over the city of Granada. Riding the trains in Spain and seeing a different landscape from my home. Using my Spanish language skills from school years back. The kindness of Spanish people. Seeing Guernica and El Greco's work in person.

Things I would do differently: Better planning of what to see and eat in each city. Coming from Madrid, I thought more things would be open all day in Granada and Seville. I had a habit of getting to a cathedral 45 minutes before closing time and not being able to get an audio guide which would have helped my understanding of the Seville cathedral. Buying a cellphone when I first got to Spain. I found as a single traveller, my phone really helped me out in certain situations where there was no WiFi and Skype didn't work. Take a pair of comfortable shoes as my ballerina flats while comfortable didn't have good cushioning while walking on cobblestones which are everywhere in Spain.

To be honest, I never really had a burning desire to travel to Spain-I'm much more interested in Paris and London. However, after my trip, I've been a strong advocate since Spain has at least as fresh food and coffee as France, cheaper hotels and better transport than England. The weather apart from the end was gorgeous and I still miss the little pastry shops where I could go and get my pastry and coffee at the counter. Even all my misadventures were part of the experience. So now I will go back to lurking and figuring out how I fund my next trip to London and Italy.:)
