When I was in Thailand, the south held host to beautiful islands and snorkelling opportunities—but the north told a story of jungles and mountains. In Spain I made a point to travel down from the Catalonia region, Barcelona, to the southern, Andalucian region of Spain. The food was different, the climate was different and surprisingly the language was too! The fascinating history and varying landscapes made me realise how important it is to take in as much of the country (or neighbouring countries) as you can. Not only does your money go further, but your experiences do too.
