Ok, Im planning to go to Spain for my birthday in Aprill 2011...and yes its my 1st time going there or ever travelling to Europe. From what I've searched * seen online, both places are very beautiful & theres alot to do BUT I still dont know where to visit for my 1st trip to Spain. So, where should I go? What are the TOP places that I HAVE to go see? Where can I get some great food/drinks w/o breaking my wallet? (Where do the locals go?), whats the best way to see the town? (by foot or local trans.?), hows the weather like during spring?...and how are the people over there..whats the night life like? Anything else I forgot to mention just let me know in your comments. I do know how to speak fluent spanish so Im not worried about that! =) Oh, and lastly..what are some events that happen in the spring time?? anything specific? Thanks!
