As the days become better and brighter, I cannot help but dream about vacation destinations. After living in the center of Europe for almost 2 years now, I really miss the sea.

As I was searching for European beach destinations, Spain has piqued my interest. But it isn’t only because of its beaches. A lot of it has to do with my home country’s history. For three hundred years, the Philippines was under Spanish colonial rule and a lot of what we have now came from the Spaniards. Shown below is a picture of a street in Vigan, Northern Philippines, which somehow gives you an idea of what the Spaniards have left behind.
Not only did they leave us with historical buildings, but our language in itself is interlaced with a lot of Spanish words. I would love to see and experience the country that gave us all these.
As of this time, I still don’t know when we will be able to go, but it is definitely on my bucket list. Luckily, I found this great site that offers good deals on hotels, flights, and everything that has to do with travel. So perhaps one day I will get there. But for now, I’ll just keep on dreaming.
