It is always more fun to travel somewhere if you actually know where you are going, so we actually feel quite convinced that you will get both benefit and pleasure from our little travel guide here on the site if you are planning a trip to Spain.
A trip to Spain is for many a fairly quick and easy way to really get away during their vacation. As you know, the climate is quite different from Sweden, and warm Mediterranean winds fan the landscape during the day. In the evenings, they are replaced by cooler breezes that make life very pleasant to live, and the temperature probably has a lot to do with how the Spaniards live their day. During the day, when it is at its hottest, you save your energy and take a wonderful siesta, and in the evenings you are not afraid to be out late and have dinner well into the evening twig.
And there is so much more to Spain than just sun, swimming and siestor! Since 1975, when Franco disappeared from power, the country has flourished as a real tourist jewel around the Mediterranean. And if you really want to make the most of your trip to Spain, it’s a good idea to prepare well before you go. Spain is full of great sights and attractions, but unfortunately few know about them. If you read just a little, you will have a big advantage over the Swedish tourists who go to Alicante or the Spanish Canary Islands on a charter.
Travel to Spain
The most common way to travel to Spain is of course by plane. As the country is a popular tourist destination, there is rarely a shortage of departures, and if you can accept to travel just a few weeks outside the high season, it is not impossible to get really cheap airline tickets. Make sure you carefully compare flights to Alicante and other places in Spain as they vary in price and you can make really good cuts if you are patient!
Before you sit down and book a flight, however, it may be worth taking a look at the options. Spain is quite easy to reach by both bus and train. The country is a popular stop for many who buy train wreck passes, and chartered buses run almost daily during the high season. Of course, there is a trade-off that needs to be made: of course you get to see more of Europe, but the journey takes twice as long. Of course, it’s all about how much time and money you have.
Once inland, communications are good. At the time of writing, a high-speed network for train traffic is being built and expanded, and in fact it has the world’s third longest road network of motorways (after China and the USA). About fifty airports also guarantee that you can quickly get where you want in Spain.
