Traveling in Spain is what travel dreams are made of. But since there are so many things to see and do here, and so many ways to get around, you might need an experienced and professional Spain travel planner.
Imagine a country that is home to some of the world’s best art, a wide range of beautiful old architecture, vistas with olive trees as far as you can see, thriving and authentic cities, picture-perfect small towns; a country that is home to many languages and cultures, on a naturally beautiful peninsula surrounded by three seas. That’s Spain in a nutshell.
If you are searching for a travel planner to help plan your trip to Spain, look no further. Working as a personal travel consultant and planner, based in Madrid, I live, work, and, yes, travel it full-time.

Clearly, I am very fond of traveling off the beaten path and traveling like a local. Luckily for me, Spain has so many little gems far away from the crowds, that it is easy to get swept up in staying away from the well-trodden route. But let’s face it, some places...read more
The busy streets of Madrid never sleep As a personal travel consultant, I see it all the time in my work; clients with a proposed itinerary of Spain that completely skips Madrid. It used to be that you pretty much had to at least transit through Madrid to get...read more
