Thumbs up


so im gonna spend 2 months in europe with a euro pass come july 4
first ill be in london then ill be in pamplona spain for the running of the Bulls festival
I was originally planning on hitting germany, amsterdam, denmark, france, Italy for a month during the month of july
then go spend a month in spain and portugal during the month of august

but my parents are telling me that itsa big mistake and its messed up cus i have distant relatives ive never met before in Portugal
and my parents expect me to go see them first off
plus i heard somewhere its more fun under the sun in Spain and portugal during july

my trip is only 20 days away and i have to come up with a decision quick
Spain and portugal- july or august, basically first part of the trip or last

so anyones advice would help greatly

It only makes sense to see Spain and Portgual during July cause you have to be in Spain anyway for the running of the bulls.

Running of bulls and then stay in Barcelona as long as you can. anyone who has been there will tell you its the easiest place to fall in love with and the hardest place to leave.
it kind of depends on what you are looking for when you go. everyone flocks to the coast during august, so there are a lot of places around northern europe that shut down, but it also gets ridiculous trying to find a place to stay in august too. myself, some buddies and about 80 beautiful Auburn ladies are studying in Spain from the end of June to the end of July. We are doing four days in Lisbon around the 14th of July, if you are interesting in meeting up with us let me know.

try to stay at the hostel kabul if you end up going to Barcelona (book in advance) its a wonderful atmosphere right off of las ramblas and has unbelievable happy hour and like 10 minute walk to the beach and the harbor.
i don't know if you heard me counting, but i did over a thousand

"Come on yall lets take a ride, don't you say shit just get inside, its time to take yo ass on another kind of trip cause you can't have the hop if you don't have the hip. Grab yo gat with the extra clip and close yo eyes and hit the switch, we goin to a place where everybody kick it kick it, kick it, yeah... that's the ticket ain't no bloodin', ain't no cripin' ain't no punk-ass nigga's set trippin' everybody's got a stack and it ain't no crack
and it really don't matter if you're white or black, I wanna take you there like the Staple Singers put something in the tank and I know that I can bring ya If you can't take the heat get yo' ass out the kitchen, we're on a mission" -coolio
