Two Weeks in Spain, how to divide up the time between cities?

We're going to Spain for two weeks in January. I've been told Barcelona is very fun and Madrid is dull but has great museums. How many days should we devote to each city? We like fine food, queer events, second hand clothes shopping, fancy bars, historical sites, and things you don't need a car to see. Would love to go out into the countryside if we can on public transportation. Is there a great reason to stay in Bracelona and just day trip to Madrid? Or vice versa? [more inside]

Andalusia in April

I'm planning a trip to Andalusia in April 2017 - my husband, my 9 year old son and me. We want to see WOW ruins and castles (ones that even a slightly disinterested 9 year old might say "WOW" about), avoid huge crowds and look at natural beauty (and whatever else I don't know is awesome over there).

Barcelona in late September

Looking for tips for upcoming trip to Barcelona in last two weeks of September. We've read some travel guides but wondering for first-hand advice on what to expect for weather, how much tourist Catalan to cram, must-sees, must-avoids, advice on how to best experience the Mercè festival which takes place while we are there, any great recommended day trips, how to most cost-effectively navigate the city via metro or tram, etc. Thanks in advance.

Is anyone familiar with Camallera, Spain?

I'm about to travel to Camallera to stay there for a month, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice about the town, things in the region to visit (super interested in flora/fauna exposure), and how to get from the train station to my lodgings (a number for a reliable, currently operating taxi service would be awesome).

What was the amazing sculpture I remember from 22 years ago in Sevilla?

In 1993 I traveled around Spain as a student, and am kicking myself for not taking a picture of an amazing statue I saw two or three times fleetingly from the tour bus in Sevilla. Feels like a long shot, because I've searched for images of it online many times and keep coming up empty. Can you help me identify and locate it? [more inside]

Costa Brava in July/August: Is Air-conditioning really necessary?

Booking my 5 day stay in the Costa Brava at the height of the season right now, and I've kept it confined to small towns to mitigate the crowds. We are looking at houses on the coast in wooded environs, and I've noticed many of the best houses seem to have no A/C. Since they're right on the water I imagine that keeps the heat from being unbearable. Still, my partner is very heat sensitive, so just how comfortable is it without A/C?
