ON THESE BEAUTIFUL COUNTRIES:
• Spain is an amalgam of fiercely independent regions,each with its own culture, gastronomy, folklore andlanguage. As the people from Bilbao or Barcelona willtell you; they are Basque and Catalonian respectively,not Spanish!
• Bars are popular meeting places in Spain. Join yourfriends at lunchtime for a glass of wine and tapas – awell-established tradition.
• The Spanish just love a good fiesta. The fervidprocessions during Holy Week and the running of thebulls in Pamplona are well-known, but stranger onesrange from parades of devils to full-blown battles withwater or even tomatoes!
• In Portugal, ordering a café will get you an espresso.So if you do not prefer something that strong, order ameia de leite (half-coffe and half-milk) or a galão(a shot of espresso with triple the milk).

Its rolling interior is perfect for exploring on foot, by kayak, by bike or even on horseback – though a large part of the country’s charm comes from languorous days on the beach, dining on fabulously fresh seafood and kicking back with a beer to watch the sunset over the Atlantic. It is also a developed country with an advanced economy, a high living standard, being also the 11th most peaceful country in the world.
