Itinerary Overview

This was our first time in Europe, our first country was Spain and we went to three different cities, we flew from Bogotá to Madrid, the trip was around 10 hours, in this type of trips I recommend buying the business class, its more expensive but is totally worth it because you can sleep very comfortable so the jetlag is not so heavy. We stayed at a hotel near “Puerta del sol” which is a famous public square at Madrid, the hotel name was “Hotel Europa” it was great because we could go walking to many spots and there were metro stations near. We stayed for 5 days but one of those we went to Toledo a town near Madrid, we went by train and the trip was around 1 hour long, it was just a one day trip as you can visit the most important things in one day, we went in June so summer was really heavy, water is fundamental and a good pair of tennis too. After Madrid we went to Barcelona by train, the trip was like 3 hours long, we were thinking about taking a bus as it is much cheaper but it was like 8 hours so we thought it wasn’t worth it. In Barcelona we stayed at a hotel in the gothic district called “Sweet in” it was good located and we had near the “Barceloneta” which was one of my favorite spots there. We stayed for three days, I would have liked staying more days as Barcelona is an amazing city, people is so welcoming and the landscape is totally incredible! Also as it has beach and it was June the plan was great. One of our favorite things to do when visiting new countries is food and here we tried some delicious food starting with the awesome Paella!
