My first time in Asturias hiking Picos de Europa
The Picos de Europa are located in the Asturias and Cantabria. It’s a five-our drive from Madrid and approximatively two hours from Santander. They are quite spectacular. Impressive rocky mountain highs, endless gorges and hidden valleys made it the perfect place for a relaxing weekend. Even if getting there can be a bit complicated, it remains convenient enough for occasional travelers like me. I only 2 days in the Picos, but I could have easily spent a few weeks there. There are so many hiking trails there that deserve your attention. There’s literally hundreds of miles worth of mountains and (dangerous!) rocky paths. Walking information – particularly guidebooks – is fairly limited if you don’t speak or read Spanish. If you don’t have a Spanish friend handy like me, get prepared to google a lot… Walking in the Picos de Europa is so rewarding. The marking is abundant so you don’t need to spend hours on Maps.me to find where to go. Just relax and enjoy the scenery… Oh and also, bring a lot of water because they are not many drinkable fountains or streams (especially in summer). In addition to walking, this region is praised for its delicious wine, gorgeous cheese (the area is famous for Cabrales) and fabada (a delicious stew with white beans, chorizo, pork belly and morcilla).
I found your page because I'm thinking of going to Palma de Mallorca maybe this October.What's your favorite bar or neighborhood to go out for drinks ?
In Palma de Mallorca, I recommend you for sure to stay close to the waterfront or the port area, where you can enjoy the nightlife. You'll find the best pubs and some discos over there. ↵

How can I move to Spain?
I have been living in Spain 21 years now. There are many jobs that you can do in Spain as a non Spanish speaker but they tend to be located in the main cities such as Barcelona or Madrid. In other location you could work remotely depending on the sector you work in. Some people teach english as a foreign language or work in tourism. I wrote lots about life abroad on piccavey.com where I share aspects of living in Andalucia.
My favorite city in Spain
I have only been to Santander and Seville In Spain. I am not very attracted to Barcelona or Madrid as it's full of French tourists, but on the contrary I felt in love with Seville. Seville is one of the most interesting cities I've seen for architecture : it's a medieval catholic city that was invaded by the Muslims many centuris ago, but instead of destroying everything, they built around it. So you can see the cultural and religious layers on the buildings. The food was amazing and weather too. I strongly recommend to visit Seville, rent a car and do Cordoba and the Andalusia region. It's the most authentic and mindblowing part of Spain
