While I feel like I know Madrid and Andalucía pretty well by now, I've never stepped foot on the gorgeous beaches of the Costa Blanca in the east, nor have I explored the luscious lands of Basque Country, Cantabria or Galicia.
San Sebastián | Alicante | Santander
A Coruña | Ibiza | Pamplona
Clearly I don't have beaches on my mind at all. I like to think that Madrid is it's own little perfect world... until I remember that there's no body of water here. Seattleite problems, much? I also have an inherent distaste for winter, so naturally I'm obsessively day dreaming of all things related to summer. Plus, how fun would it be to see the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona? I wish I had the chutzpa to let myself be chased by these magnificent beasts, but more likely than not, I would be enjoying it from afar. So who's coming with me?
