Last year, I had a phenomenal trip to Europe thanks to you guys!!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to cover Spain in my trip due to time/finance constraints. So this year I want to go to Spain and maybe Portugal (?) around the fall (Aug/Sept/Oct) for about 2 weeks (max)
Unlike the last Q, this time I really have 0 direction. I don't have anything planned out, places I want to visit, planes, trains, nothing. What I'm looking for here is not that you plan my trip for me (though that would be nice ha) but really to learn from your travel experiences in those areas. Which places worked? And which didn't? Why did you like/dislike it? And if there's a place (food, lodging) you just had a wonderful experience in, then I'd love to hear about that too!
I didn't win a lottery since last year, so money is definitely still an issue - though I've started saving! The group of travelers will be mid-twenties young professionals. I would want the experience to be a good mix of adventurous and relaxing. Food and getting immersed in local culture are big on our list.
PS - From my last trip, Prague and Paris were my favorite spots - I loved the "feel" of Prague, that feeling of beautiful things untouched and preserved.
