Spain

Sun, flamenco, and sangria abound, but there is far more to Spain than you imagine.  Spain has world class art museums like the Guggenheim Bilbao, Picasso Museum Malaga, and the Prado  as well as three starred Michelin restaurants in San Sebastian.  You can ski in the Sierra Nevada and Pyrenees, follow the Trail of Don Quixote or nuture your soul by walking the Camino de Santiago (the Way of Saint James).  Or simply do what many northern Europeans do–pack your bathing suit and plop yourself on any one of the hundreds of miles of spotless coast along the Mediterranean Sea or the Bay of Biscay.  Whether you are traveling alone, with friends, as a couple or with a family, Spain is hard to beat for food, culture, natural beauty, and bang for your buck.
