So nice to know, I would want to go everywhere of course, but it's just a matter of what to choose first! Thank you so much, it seems I'm leaning towards Spain & Portugal for 2020 and then Greece for another time

Lisa we were just in Sitges and Barcelona for two weeks and could have stayed longer. Sitges is beachy and very cool and Barcelona is full of culture and sights. The two cleanest cities I’ve ever seen.

Just did Spain did Portugal in May. So much history and Algarve is south Portugal beaches and so beautiful. Northern (Madrid) is castles, churches, architecture, Azul middle eastern tiles, food. Fadoa and english channels on tv, signs (great for tourists)In Spain, history, flamenco, food! Speed train there. Hiking in country if you need a break from city. Barcelona was only place we never had time to go to but the young travellers highly recommended it! Good luck!!
