We’ve been tracking San Sebastian’s rise to the culinary hall of fame since we first lived in the Basque Country over 15 years ago. As Europe’s City of Culture in 2016, the cultural calendar has finally caught up with the chefs and it really is a world class destination for all the senses.
After 15 years designing custom trips to Spain and Portugal, we can honestly say that a huge, huge portion of our Totally Spain valued clients are what the industry calls baby boomers. Yes, those people born in the US between 1946 and 1964. We really enjoy working with these experienced, mature travelers and, for that reason we thought, why not say something about it? So, in no particular order, here are eight reasons why we love working with baby boomers and why baby boomers love Spain and Portugal and working with Totally Spain.
We often plan a week off in a warmer climate during our Christmas break when it can get a bit chilly in Northern Spain.

It’s been a while since we wrote about the Camino de Santiago, so we thought we’d bring you some of the alternative Camino routes in Spain which can be walked, cycled, ridden and driven. Yes, driven!
