    Lots of people come to Barcelona, city by the sea, and expect to find great beaches to relax on between touring the city's cultural and historical sites. Then they find out they were sadly mistaken. It's not that the Mediterranean isn't beautiful, but those who go to one of Barcelona's many public beaches should be aware that they will have their...

  • Atletico de Madrid

    Madrid Sports & Outdoors

    Portuguese are soccer lovers, jealous of the better games played in Spain. It's common, for those who may, to travel to Spain only to see a game (or a bullfight).

    Madrid Sports & Outdoors

    If you are really fond of fishing and don't wanna go out the city, try at the lakes of the Juan Carlos I Park.

To get there, take the Metro towards the airport and stop in the previous stop (Campo de las Naciones)

    Nothing like being on vacation putting on weight eating rich foods!

We had tickets in the main grandstand which provides great views of the starting grid and all it has to offer in the pre-race build...

    Neither of us windsurf, but we couldn't help be impressed by the practitioners in Tarifa. Apparently, the meeting of the Mediterranean and Atlantic air masses generates a lot of wind in Tarifa, and it is one of Europe's top windsurfing destinations. I inquired -- it is NOT the place to be a beginner!

    I think you can do this if you want. People do. I have no idea how you'd go about fighting a bull or why you'd want to. But go for it if you want to. A pink cape for the beginning of the fight and a red cape for the end of the fight. A sword is necessary to administer the final kill. An elaborate wardrobe, complete with tight pants and a hat, is...
