On February 1st, my girlfriend and I set out to pursue a shared dream of ours - to spend months backpacking across Southeast Asia. There were a few reasons why we chose Southeast Asia: 1) It's THE backpacker destination. 2) It's very budget friendly. 3) We had never been to Asia. 4) It was far, far away from home.
In the fall of 2018, we took a weeklong hiking trip out to the Sawtooth Mountains in central Idaho. The trip took all kinds of twists and turns, starting from the first minute we set out. We ended up learning lifelong travel lessons and creating unique memories that will last forever.
Barcelona is an amazing city and certainly one that needs to be on any Spain Travel Itinerary, but one of our absolute favorite experiences of our entire multi-month Spain trip was our day in Costa Brava. If you can afford the extra day in Barcelona in your itenerary, we would highly recommend taking a trip up the coast to Costa Brava.
