I am looking into spending two weeks in Spain this summer at a Diverbo Pueblo Ingles volunteer program for teens. I am 15 years old and would be traveling alone from New York City to Madrid where a program representative would pick me up from the airport and provide transportation to the program venue. However, my parents have many concerns due to the recent strikes at Iberia airline which took place in Madrid. Along with the eurozone crisis and rising bankruptcy my parents fear the situation in Spain might worsen with more strikes which may pose a danger to the public. Nevertheless, as my parents are aware that they do not know of the exact situation in Spain, they didn't yet say no to my trip.
We are now trying to find out if going to Spain this summer would indeed be a bad idea. Is the situation in Madrid, and in Spain overall, dangerous at the moment? I wouldn't be spending more then two days in Madrid itself as the bulk of the program takes place at a resort around four hours away from the city. Any and all information will be appreciated. Thanks!
