Travelling Around Spain


Madrid is the capital and the biggest city with twice the number of people of Barcelona, the next biggest. About forty seven million live in Spain. In some locations, you can ski in the morning and sun bathe in the afternoon. You can also run with bulls and get pelted with tomatoes. For the latest on what going on in Spain, go to the website of the Spain Tourist Board.

As the above website will show, Spain has a lot more to offer than sunny beaches and the Costas. It rivals France in terms of good wine and exquisite foods. Discover the Asturias with mountain ranges and climates similar to Scotland. Appoint a designated driver and sample the many different local ciders and cheeses. Spanish Events - The two most well known events are the Pamplona Bull Run, in early July, and the Tomatina Tomato Fight in August. However, before that, head to Tenerife in February for the carnival and festival that celebrates the Burial of the Sardine!

Canary & Balearic Islands - Cars cannot be taken to the Balearics or the Canary Islands. If looking for a busy island then Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Mallorca have the most inhabitants, but if not want to meet many people, then get to Ons, which has less than one hundred people living there.

Granada - In the south of Spain showcases the many influences that make modern Spain and at the same time, offers beautiful beaches and the best ski resorts in the Sierra Nevada. To explore it's beauty of beaches and resorts you can hire at Granada Airport.
