Thank you Zoya, for Spain!
I had always wanted to go to Spain. Always.
The Country’s beautiful culture and eclectic party scene was a perfect mix for someone like me, who gets bored pretty easily. The country had a viable sense of balance to it, which I, desperately wanted and still hunt for …. LOL
In July 2014, I set off to Spain with two of my closest travel buddies, not knowing that this seven day, 3-city backpack trip would be a lesson, I’d never forget.
We landed in Madrid after a brief halt in Amsterdam – my favorite city for all the wrong reasons! Madrid is one of the most vibrant European cities I have been to. The women are gorgeous, the men are steaming hot and the city generally exudes a very chilled out, holiday like vibe. Restaurants line up the busy streets with people drinking their wine for breakfast!
We stayed in a hostel in the City Centre which was nearby to all the cultural sites and shopping centres.

After a tight 2 days, we headed over to Barcelona via bus. The journey took us 8 hours and can be easily booked by checking with your Hostel/Hotel or accommodation staff.
For those who cannot walk much like me, BCN is HELL!!!
BCN is the city of Gaudi! It’s almost like he built it. We stayed in a hostel which was far from the city and quite uphill but was no doubt gorgeous!

No visit to Spain is complete without Ibiza babay !!! We boarded our 1 hour flight to the party capital of the world and reached their past midnight. Our Hostel was located in San Antonio which was where the backpackers usually stayed….The streets were full of party goers and drunk men and women who approached us for jobs in Dubai ! LOL

Spain is a must-visit for any traveler who wants to relax ,turn into an overnight party animal or just explore…Thank you Zoya Akhtar for acting as a reminder call to visit this Country .
