Normally, I use this space to discuss my thoughts on a given subject, or provide as much help as I can to other travelers roaming the area. This time around, I’m in need of some help.
Next month is “Semana Santa”, also known as Easter Break. In Canada, Easter is allotted approximately two or three days for holiday, meaning it’s not normally a highly anticipated week-long fiesta. In Madrid, this time is well-known as a great way to break free from this land-locked capital. Spaniards tend to head for the beach, but us foreigners use this opportunity to travel as far away as possible!
As such, I’ve been presented with many different options for my trip. However, I find myself at a loss in regards to where to travel. For a while, I’ve been thinking about doing a week-long trip to various places in the north of Spain. The only cities I’ve been to north of Segovia have been San Sebastian and Barcelona, meaning there’s still all of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, and parts of the Basque Country that need to be explored. On the other hand, I’ve been wanting to re-visit Amsterdam, the city I feel as though I didn’t get to know well enough, along with a couple of other cities further north in Europe. Nice, in the south of France, is also an option, as is Monte Carlo.
If it wasn’t already obvious, it seems as though while I have a general idea of what I could possibly do, I’m not certain on anything yet. Italy is my ideal destination, but it’s been said that Easter is a chaotic time to visit its major cities. For this reason, I’d like to enlist the help of anyone with a spare second and an eye for adventure!
So, if you have any opinion on the matter, your vote in the following poll is appreciated. Furthermore, comments to justify your choice are also welcome. In the end, I hope to have the best trip possible, or at least aspire to that!
Ready? Set. Go!
