I am planning a trip to Spain October 11-22 for myself and 2 of my friends. 3 girls, ages 25-26, well traveled, adventurous, we all work in the food industry and appreciate unique food/restaurants and good wine. We are willing to spend money on restaurants and accommodations for something that is worth it but also are open to hostels, renting rooms in houses, etc. for the experience of that as well. It's important to us to actually experience the culture while we're there.
That being said, our tentative itinerary (with not much planned yet) is as follows...
Nights of Oct 11-13: Staying in Barcelona at Kabul (hostel)
Nights of Oct 14-20: Renting a car and doing a road trip for 7 nights. We would ideally like to drive up the coast to San Sabastian, stay there for 2 nights and then drive back to Barcelona through the wine country.
Night of Oct 21: Return to Barcelona, staying at the Starwood. Dinner at Tickets.
The hardest part of planning this trip has been deciding what stops we will make on the road trip. Does anyone have any recommendations for that portion of the trip? Where to stop, where to stay, where to eat, things to see along the way, etc.
Also open to suggestions for things to do/eat/see while in Barcelona.
Thank you everyone!
