Beaches, sangria, and cathedrals, oh my! Between the history, the food, and the weather, Spain can feel like paradise on earth. Over 80 million people visit this beautiful country every year, and it’s easy to understand why.

There are hundreds of guides that tell you where to stay or what to see in Spain, but it’s much harder to learn about the more practical, day-to-day tips. What culture shocks should I expect? How am I going to get around? What’s the restaurant etiquette?

My first international trip was to Spain, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Studying abroad there was truly one of the best experiences of my life. As I explored this Mediterranean wonderland, I realized how truly transformative travel can be.

From San Sebastian to Mallorca and beyond, Spain is culturally and geographically diverse—and that’s what made this list so hard to make!

You can choose your own adventure here.

Party it up on the islands. Take in the world-class architecture of the mainland. Wander the lush green forests of the north. It’s all there for the taking.

Ready to say hola to one of Europe’s greatest destinations? Here are some of my favorite places to visit in Spain (that aren’t Barcelona).

Disclaimer: You should most definitely still visit Barcelona! And I’ve got a wealth of info on the city that’ll help you hit the ground running.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
