I must have been to Spain around 10 times now, exploring as much of this country as I possibly can. Each city has its own appeals, from Barcelona’s city culture and great clubs, to the beach life along the coast, over to the fun times in San Sebastian. There are also a number of islands which are popular destinations for British tourists, such as Majorca, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and the one and only Ibiza. When thinking of Spanish food, your mind will most likely wander towards tapas or paella, however what people are often not aware of is how much olive oil they produce. In fact, they are creating almost half of the worlds production levels of olive oil! I’m not sure why this hasn’t become greater public knowledge, with most stereotyping that it comes from Italy. I guess more unsurprising considering ‘Brits abroad’, there are more bars in Spain than anywhere else in Europe. The Spaniards relaxing approach to life will undoubtedly rub off on you, as you have a siesta through the day and end up saying Manana Manana in response to any tasks that pop up along the way which can be delayed. This relaxed state of mind is inevitably affected by the heat during the day.
