My Travels In Spain

Since fall of 2009, I’ve had an on-and-off relationship with Spain. I studied abroad here in the fall of 2009 in Sevilla, then I came back in the summer of 2010 to Barcelona. I fell in love with Barcelona and couldn’t stay away, so when I graduated college in the spring of 2011 I moved straight here.


So that means I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of Spain – I’ve lived in Andalucía and Catalunya, and visited lots of the rest of the country.  Here’s where I’ve been so far (click on the photos to take you to my posts about those regions):



And here’s a more detailed list of spots:



Castilla y León


  • Barcelona
  • Cadaqués
  • Castelldefels and Ocata (beach towns in the province of Barcelona)
  • Figueras, famous for its Dalí museum
  • Girona
  • La Jonquera – where escapees from the Spanish Civil War and Franco stopped before crossing over into France
  • Olot, famous for its volcanoes.
  • Palamós – a touristy beach town on the Costa Brava
  • Sitges – a beach town near Barcelona known as “Gay Ibiza”

Las Islas Baleares – Ibiza

Madrid – Madrid

Valencia – Valencia

I’m sure there will be many more coming! Last year, I went to to Ávila, Salamanca, Segovia, SevillaIbiza, Madrid, and Asturias. Whew!

My current top places I want to visit in Spain are (in no order): Asturias, País Vasco, Las Islas Canarias, Valencia, and Zaragoza.

  1. wow! you’ve seen alot of Spain! I’ll have to come back and peruse a little more later. must get my work day started. love “hola Yessica”. I had a roommate named Jane while living in Madrid and our señoras always called her Yane 😉

  2. You have been in places that I still haven’t! Impressive! You should visit La Rioja too, it’s not quite famous, but it’s, lets say, something really mystical. 😀

  3. We have spent more than a month traveling this beautiful country and look forward to returning soon. You should definitely take some time to hike the Pyrenees. They are breathtaking and relatively tourist free even in high season. I also recommend A Coruna.
