We’ve just come off the phone from a client who was asking us what to pack for Spain. It’s something we are often asked – usually with the subtext of how the person can avoid looking like a tourist. While we don’t think that everybody should look the same (how boring would that be!) here’s our advice on what to wear in Spain with our insider Do’s & Don’t to consider when packing. Living and working in Spain as we do (Totally Spain is Spain-based travel agent and specialist in custom travel to Spain since 2000), we speak from experience.
If you only spend a day in Spain, you can’t help noticing how people love to share food. It’s so intrinsic to the dining experience that it’s built into the menus. But do you know what to share and how to share it in Spain? We’ve been designing custom itineraries in Spain and Portugal for two decades and here are our pro-tips to exactly that:-
September is a fantastic month to visit Spain. Not so hot, not so crowded and when much of the Northern hemisphere is switching on the heating and getting out the boots and sweaters, you are still able to enjoy a day out on the sea or a hike and picnic in the hills.
Inspired by the brand new open-air community theatre in Laroles (in the Alpujarras) developed by Anna Kemp and her team, we’ve decided to compile a list of Spain’s best open air theatres which, for obvious reasons, come into their own in the Summer months. Not only are they places for enjoying outdoor dramatics and music festivals, but many of these theatres are wonderful architectural spaces in their own right. Which one is your favourite?
We’re just back from a lovely trip to Galicia and want to share some of the great reasons to visit the North West of Spain. This time, we chose the Rias Baixas area as our base and toured the vicinity as well as going north to Santiago de Compostela and south to the Cies Islands. We re-visited some destinations we love, tried out some great new places, ate extremely well and enjoyed some delicious white wine. Read about our trip below and let us help you plan where to go in Galicia.
