So Spain! Europe was never high on my travel list... Probably near the bottom to be honest. Why? Everyone goes there, it's not too different from what I'm used to and expensive. But for solo travel, Spain was a great choice especially with couchsurfers enhancing every moment. When they said, it's easy to travel around Europe, they weren't kidding. I sailed through the border with no forms, no questions and barely a glance to check my face, after he already stamped my passport. I'm definitely practicing my Spanish- even the people at the airport tourist booth didn't speak English. Didn't know where the metro was. I'm not really sure who hires these people.
