I'm off to Asturias, Spain at the end of May. What should I do while I'm there? I like beaches/snorkeling and also weird cultural stuff (for example, in Berlin I loved the Dead Chickens Studio and in Prague I loved the crazy metronome and fake Starbucks at the bottom of its hill).

Myself and two friends are going to Las Canarias for the week before easter.

We're looking for recommendations for cool preferably cheapish things to do, places to eat, places to see, etc. [more inside]

I'm going to Spain for a bit and want, if possible, to get a pay-as-you-go Spainish sim card for my (unlocked) iPhone that will allow me to use data at a reasonable price. Does anyone know if such a product exists in Spain? I don't speak Spanish so bonus points if it's possible to buy one over the internet and have it shipped to me in the UK (though I know that's unlikely)... [more inside]

I'm in Madrid this semester, and would like to pick up an old rangefinder camera (film) or similar for around 20 euros. Is digging around antique shops and similar my best bet? Do you know a place? Or are there actually some not-terribly-expensive used camera shops in this big pretty city? Are there secondhand shops/thrift stores at all in this town? Aware of El Rastro, tried once with no luck and will probably try again Sunday. I'll also be in London next weekend and am not opposed to buying it there if you know a place. [more inside]

In a few weeks I will be moving to Madrid (Spain) for 3-6 months. I am used to cycling to work and I am trying to determine if that might be possible there. Is it common to see cyclists on the road in Madrid? Are there cycling lanes? Are drivers used to driving around cyclists or am I having a deathwish? Any further pointers, opinions and advice highly appreciated. Thanks!
I'm leaving for Spain tomorrow and going to Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, and Cordoba. Can anyone recommend any truly bizarre museums in any of these cities? I'm a big fan of things like deformed fetuses in jars and old medical instruments. Other types of off-beat, funny museum suggestions would be great too. Thanks!
Looking for ideas about how to spend a romantic week in Spain in April. Both in our early 40s. Good music and food is a must. Everthing else is completely open. Anybody with some nice experiences, activities and secret travel tips they wish to share?
My husband and I are visiting Spain in April. I want to take a day trip to Tangier, Morocco, but he isn't feeling it (he doesn't think a day trip is enough.) So this is my question - should we go to Tangier for the day, or should we find something else in the Seville area to do that day? Right now, we also are planning on visiting the Pueblos Blancos for a day, and we'll be spending a day in Seville. We'll also be in Granada for a couple of days. Thanks!

I'm going to Spain (Barcelona) for 10 days, and I'm a US citizen, which in my understanding grants me a de facto 90-day single entry Schengen visa. I've been thinking about going to Andorra, a non-Schengen country, which suggests to me that I would therefore require a multiple entry Visa. Preliminary research confirms this. Stupid question: do I need to do this before I leave? Can anyone else who has gone to Andorra from Spain attest to the strictness or laxity of the immigration controls?

I'm going on holiday to Spain with my mother. We're flying into Barcelona in August (bad time, I know!) for four days and then have 12 days to make our way to Casablanca before she starts a tour of Morocco. So I need to plan our time in Spain. I thought five days or so in Menorca, but it seems difficult to get to cheaply. I thought about catching a train to Valencia for a few days, then heading to Seville/Grenada/Cordoba before Morocco- what must we see or avoid? [more inside]

About nine years ago I spent a couple of days in Tossa de Mar on Spain's Costa Brava. One night we had a fantastic buttery-garlicky fish dish which my memory (and Google) tells me was called cimi tomba. Does anyone know of the recipe for this masterpiece of Catalan cuisine?
