I am a solo traveller with 9 days spare before meeting a friend in Barcolona. I will be flying to Spain from Manchester. I'm interested in sightseeing at a leisurely pace and am happy to see whatever comes my way. I would prefer to spend 3 nights in each place if possible or at least two nights. As Barcelona is my final destination should I concentrate on the north only or the south only and then head to Barcelona. I would prefer to train or bus between destinations. I have heard San Sebastian is lovely but I'm not sure if 9 days up on the northern coast would be too much. I understand if I go to San Sebastian and I want to see Andalucia I would need to fly south. I would also be happy to spend some time at a beach/coastal area for a couple of days.
