Living In The Land of Salsa (Food and Dance)

When one thinks of Spain they think of the sunny weather, the people, the music and some dancing. Since Spain is known for this, it would make sense, but it is a country that is growing in terms of life-work balance as well as many job opportunities. And, one cannot beat its social and historical value.

Spain’s Secret Sauce

  • The architecture shows the old world with its warm, browns mixed with a modern uptake. 
  • Siesta is when people living in Spain can take a break from work to nap. Hence, shops, restaurants, etc. close between 2 pm to 5 pm (the hottest time of the day). It is a Spanish tradition.
  • The party capital of the world is Ibiza which means that Spain has a thumping nightlife. 
  • Markets can be a mixture of a huge collection of foods and handmade items, so you never know what awesome item you will find.

Not to Miss in The Land of Rivers

  • Check out the uncompleted, but planned to be completed masterpiece by Antoni Gaudí: the Sagrada Família church. This has an UNESCO World Heritage status, and it will end up with 18 spires by, hopefully, 2026. 
  • Go to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, to view the great collection of art works inside. That is if you are able to get past the unique design of the exterior, which is covered with giant sheets of glass and titanium, that is curved and waved in such a way as to look like the future, while catching the sunlight.  This is an art work on its own. 
  • If you want a look at the past then head down to Segovia’s enormous Roman aqueduct which is said to date back to the first century. This  huge stone structure has about 9 miles (over 14 km) before it reaches the city center where the city portion of it has 167 arches.
