i really loved eastern europe. i tried to mix hiking with tourist cities. it was a nice balance

i went to spain a few months back and Seville is just about the most beautiful city i've seen. they have a pop fesitval there called southpop, not sure when though. and there's free trad flamenco on if that's yr thing. and i can recommend a good cheap hostel too. oh, and if you happen to be that way inclined a lovely veggie restaurant :-)

madrid was nice too, quite different to seville though. they've got some great museums/galleries, the reina sofia is incredible (and has picasso's guernica).

other than that, i can't say i've been to europe in the last 10 years so i can't really say much. though i've always had a thing for ancient greece so i liked it when i checked out athens et al.

I had a cool and luxurious holiday, In my last visit to Spain and I've always prefer staying at a Parador . There are hotel chains found in Spain having 93 Paradors. By visiting this nearly all incredible position you would certainly get a feeling that you have moved back in your past to a couple of centuries in the age of Moorish Sultans and monarch rulers of Spain.

I don't want nearly all incredible, for heaven's sake. Not for the money I paid.

If you take the night train to Spain from Paris you will have your sleep badly disturbed by the noise the train makes crossing the Pyrénées. Along with border guards checking your passports despite the Schengen agreement. The views are quite stunning in the morning on the way to Madrid.

Any inter city train in Spain requires reservation even if you have an inter rail pass. Be very careful how you put your luggage in the luggage rack - that's a long story.
