Things to do before you travel to Spain
 

It is always better to plan ahead, especially if you’re going to undertake something as big as a trip to Spain. It doesn’t matter where you live; if you speak German, English, French, etc. as a native language…you need to do research before travelling. In order to make the most of your trip, follow these tips. Actually, you can apply them to any trip, anywhere, but today we’ll focus on Spain.

Save Money
Start saving money ahead. Things may be either cheaper than they are in your country, or way more expensive depending on your currency…whatever your circumstances are, there is one thing for sure: when you travel, you don’t pass by the same place twice. So if you see something that you like, you cannot be speculating with how much money you have left, and how much you can spend per day (as long as you don’t do anything crazy). You don’t want to end up regretting you didn’t buy that thingy you saw when you had the chance.

Do Research
Read about the place where you are about to travel: what’s the history of the town or city? What languages do people speak? What are the places you cannot afford to miss? Are there any traditional festivals or events going to be celebrated around the time of your trip? What is the typical cuisine like? And what about that one dish you must try at least once?

Learn Spanish
Travelers explain they are glad they took Spanish lessons Leicester style before setting off on their trip to Spain. They were not only able to read signs, communicate with Spaniards, and avoid problems such as ordering the wrong food, missing trains, and not understanding directions when asking; but also, learning the language allowed them to experience the Spanish cultural nuances that cannot be explained in words, just experienced. A language goes hand in hand with its cultural background; hence the importance of knowing at least the basics of the language spoken at that place we are travelling.

Leave your home in order
You will probably need someone to water your plants or feed your cat while you’re away. Also, you want to make sure all your bills are paid, your appointments cancelled, etc. before leaving. Let your closest friends and relatives know that you’ll be away, and you may also want to give one of them (the one you trust the most) a spare key of your house just in case.
