Being that the book is small and an easy read, I bumped it to the top of my reading list. Normally, when planning a trip to another country we buy a travel guide to aid us in finding those well known (and maybe not so well known) places that are must sees for you trip.

Being that the book is small and an easy read, I bumped it to the top of my reading list. Normally, when planning a trip to another country we buy a travel guide to aid us in finding those well known (and maybe not so well known) places that are must sees for you trip. This book, however, gives you first hand accounts from travelers to different areas of Spain. The topics cover trips to Barcelona, Pamplona, Madrid, Valencia and more. Some of my favorites include a tale of unexpected romance (Running For the Boy) in Pamplona; a horrifying yet funny trip to the beach (What I Learned About Coleoptra By Having a Few Climb Up My Shorts) in Andalusia; and using conversational English to aquire a free trip to a village outside of Madrid (Talking My Way Into Spain). The stories give you a view of Spain from the travelers that a travel guide will not. I recommend this collection of stories for the would-be traveler as a supplement to the usual travel guides one tends to buy for their trips.

    This series presents short stories about different peoples experiences either while backpacking or studying abroad. The other two books (Europe and Italy) successfully cast the country(ies) in a positive light to inspire travel their for someone on the fence. However, I have no interest in ever going to Spain after reading this book. In fact, I'm much less likely to consider setting foot in the country now than I was before reading the book.

    I enjoyed this book a lot because it made me reminisce about my travels in Spain back in the fall of 2006, with a close friend of mine. I really wanted to head back there after reading this book, and have already started hatching new trip plans. It contains a number of stories written by young travels about their experiences in different towns throughout the country. Its great for inspiring anyone to want to travel through Spain.
