Travel in Spain
Posted by Kelbyxm at 06/18/2007
I have been to Europe, Spain a few times on travel and I deem Spain is a beautiful country and cities like Barcelona and Madrid and I'd love to go back for awhile. If you're in Barcelona be sure to check out the Picasso museum as well. Finally I think the best way to get around Spain is by train. If you want to have a holiday abroad, I firstly recommend you go to Spain! That's great!

I've been to many places in Spain and had many a good moment there. There is 1 thing that I find off putting about Spain and that is the continued practice of bullfighting. I am aware that bullfighting isn't exclusive to Spain but I find it disconcerting going to so many places in Spain (bars and restaurants) where bullfighting is glorified e.g. by the decorations on the walls. I haven't seen it documented anywhere but I have been told that bullfighting has been banned in Barcelona (a city where there are plenty of all veggie eateries I might add). Is anyone able to confirm if the bullfighting ban in Barcelona is true?
Also when I was in Seville I was told that the traditional stock to use in paella is chicken stock - including in veggie paella (obviously rendering it non veggie). Does anyone know anything about this?
Keep well all,

As for taking the train, I found buses to actually be better. They are quite cheap and reasonably comfortable. A friend and I took the bus from Madrid to Grenada, and then travelled by bus all over Andalucia, and it was fine.
Missed the Picasso museum in Barcelona! I spent too much time in the old town... :)1

Despite loving Spain, we have no intention to return, as we found the glorification of bull fighting quite disgusting. It is quite impossible to get away from it - it appears the Spanish consider this abhorrant torturing of animals to be a tourist attraction - shame on tourists if this is the case.

I'm going with a group of meat eaters who will want to sample authentic Spanish cuisine and will not want to go to Chinese/Indian/Middle Eastern places...
