Hello all, I think I may have posted before but if there are any travellers or residents of Spain willing to meet up in Spain that would be great!
I am arriving into Madrid on Oct 23rd (staying for 4 nights) and working my way south (hopefully taking a ferry to Morocco!! and would love to be w/someone else for safety) and then up to Barcelona (hitting some small towns on my way up).
Living in upper scale hostels along the way, how much money should I plan on spending in a 2 month period? Oh, I want to stay through New Years ... who knows!
Any help and friendship along the way is most appreciated!
(fed up with Hollywood and need a BIG change!!)
You can get a good middle scale meal for around 10 - 12 euros
(that would be a sit down meal that will taste good and fill you up, lunch is slightly less dinner slightly more)
(if you eat at the bar it's cheaper than the patio seating or even sitting at an indoor table)
(and if you're along you may prefer that)
(good deals are the bar menu or menu del dia)
"upper-scale" hostals are going to run about 25 to 35 euros a night. (some might include a good breakfast)
Barcelona and that area is slightly more expensive than Madrid.
Transportation depends on what you do, rent a car, bus, train etc.
then a little bit more for metro/bus/taxi in the bigger cities
Extra activities -- sight-seeing groups, museums, drinking, clubs etc. depends on you.
good clubs can cost around 15 euros, some include a drink
if you go into the deep south I recommend finding a good flamenco show. I found one for 10 euros but most will probably cost more like 35 to 45 (but so worth it!)
a bullfight (if you're interested) 20 (for the REALLY cheap seats) up to crazy high amounts for the fanatics.
I know nothing about morocco. I travelled around Spain solo this summer and loved it! Have fun!
If you are going to Barcelona, you have to visit:
1. La Sagrada Familia
2. La catedral (in the Barrio Gótico)
3. Las Ramblas
4. The Born Barrio (neighbourhood)
5. Mont Juic
6. Parc Guell
9. La Barceloneta…
Hope u enjoy your trip.
