Spain

Spain typically conjures up images of matadors, sangria, flamenco dancers and paella. While Spain offers all of these traditional cliches in abundance, the country’s real attraction is to be found in its passionate, laid back people and its unbeatable natural beauty. Even along the well beaten tourist tracks, there are authentic Spanish experiences to be had, traditional local dishes to sample and idyllic villages of timeless charm to be explored. Like the country’s famous tapas, Spain itself is a veritable smorgasbord of thriving cities, bizarre festivals, panoramic views and breathtaking beaches – rendering it a beautiful and beguiling country unlike any other.
