Why choose Spain for your Summer holiday?

With so much negative press about the Spanish economy around these days I wonder if people think that Spain is not a great place for a holiday.

I have been travelling to Spain since I was 12 years old and I now live here. I never tire of spending my holidays in Spain. The problems in the Eurozone at the moment are affecting many countries in different ways. In Spain I can say that it certainly doesn’t affect the sunshine at all.

Whether you plan to enjoy a city break visiting Fine Art museums or want to go shopping in the sunshine, Spain is a great destination.

In Majorca this year they have a festival called Mallorca Rocks and Benicassim is also a popular music event in the Spain, in July 2013.
