Things to do in Spain
Apart from the excellent architecture and the scenic natural beauty there is a lot more to Spain in the form of the bustling flea market at El RAstro in Madrid, the vibrant nightlife of Barrio Del Carmen in Valencia, the intrinsic fear evoked by the bull running in Pamplona and the wild fun of the Bunol La Tomatina festival. There is also the week long celebration of the flamenco in La Feria de Sevilla, the pleasure you can get from eating tapas and wine, the almost constant list of festivals and fiestas and of course the corrida. In fact if you want to enjoy Spain in its entirety then you need at least a year in this country.
Dance to the Flamenco: The tangible passion of the flamenco creates a lustful and yet relaxed atmosphere for the viewers. Flamenco is a little unusual as each dance move needs to be practiced before hand and the performance is very well prepared. You need to follow a strict framework of rhythmic patterns and may not be as simple as the natural dances like the salsa or street dancing. However, the flamenco has a spirit of its own which is synonymous with the high spirits of the Spanish people. You can take flamenco lessons in different cities in Spain and indulge in the passionate experience.
Party Hard in Ibiza: Ibiza is known all over the world for its frenzied party scene which lasts from April till October every year. If you are a nightlife junkie then Ibiza is just the right place for you. With the open and relaxed atmosphere of this city you can enjoy your time partying to your heart's content. There are both welcome parties and ending parties which are legendary as they welcome the opening of the clubs for the summer. However, do bear in mind that the entry fee to most of the clubs is comparatively high and you will probably spend a lot on food and drinks as well. The expense however, is worth it because of the excellent party atmosphere that you get here.
Participate in the Tomato Festival: The La Tomatina should be on everyone's list because it is probably the greatest festival in the world. The party begins with a massive feast on Paella and the following morning thousands of people throng the streets ready with tomatoes in hand. It is one of the biggest food fights in the world. You should make sure to squeeze the tomato before throwing so that it bursts on impact. This will also prevent the recipient from feeling any pain at all. Even in this madness the people of Spain are disciplined because as soon as the bottle rocket sounds, they either head to a bar or to wash themselves
