Flamenco + Endless Tapas & Sangria | Barcelona

As much as I hate falling into the trap of touristy packages that force you to stand in line for an hour to take the same exact picture as everyone else; this, was not one of those times. This was by far one of the best experiences I’ve ever had to pay for, and I would do it over again in a heartbeat. When you picture Spain, or Barcelona specifically, traditional Flamenco dancing comes to mind… along with tapas and sangria. This night captured that entire experience in the most authentic way. My one friend, Christian, had already done this …

Running of the Bulls in Pamplona

After 1 flight, 2 trains, 1 bus, and one exhausting trek through the streets, we finally reached the city we crossed an entire ocean for… Pamplona. A trip that all began with the backhanded suggestion that we should go run with the bulls. Now fast forward 5 months and some heavy convincing of a few friends; there were the seven of us, dressed in white, running for our lives down the cobblestone streets of Pamplona as half-ton beasts trailed only inches behind us. As my mind raced furiously before the Bulls were released, my head was completely clear of thoughts …

Clubbing & Cliff Jumping in Ibiza, Spain

The party capital of the world, IBIZA. Home of beautiful beaches, gorgeous women, and, of course, the best clubbing. While my friends and I were traveling through Spain during our trip to Run with the bulls, we had to make a stop on the exotic island to knock it off the bucket list.

We got hooked up with a 3 bedroom flat that overlooked the …

Cat’s Hostel in Madrid, Spain for Backpackers

Cat’s Hostel Madrid was my first and favorite hostel I’ve been to. From the moment I walked in, until the moment I walked out it was an incredible experience. We made our way out of the Anton Martin metro stop and a block away on a side street was a little sign that just said Cat’s. We were immediately greeted by a drunken Aussie who asked us if we wanted to grab a drink with him… It was 11am. After filling out all the paperwork, in the bar, that’s attached to the hostel love, while sitting on fresh kegs, we …
