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]

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).

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.
I just got an invitation to spend a week in Toledo. We leave in one week. What must we do/see/eat/buy/absorb? [more inside]
(1) We have about 20 days to spend in between Barcelona and Lisbon (2) We can get anywhere but won't have a car once we're there...no license (3) We want coastal, but not built up like Barcelona (or even like Italian/French Riviera) (4) Our budget is somewhat flexible (ballpark of $200/nite), but it's more about the feel of the area [more inside]
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).
tau_ceti and I are leaving for a vacation in Spain this week, hitting Madrid/Basque Country/Barcelona. We're looking for recommendations of stuff to read on our Kindles about the history, culture, geology, etc of regions we might be driving through. Ideas? [more inside]
My partner and I looking for the right place to live in Spain for 4 months, starting in September. The main thing we need to do is write like crazy, but we are also interested in improving our Spanish, eating great food, seeing art and theatre, and being active outdoors. [more inside]
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]

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?
