Spain is many things: beach, bullfighting, and flamenco. What many tourists are unaware of is the rich heritage of northern Spain. Asturias in particular. We were looking for a weekend getaway somewhere we hadn’t been before. Oviedo, we thought, had the raw nature and mystique we live for.
The aura of Valencia will make you forget all your worries while preparing you to relax. I loved Valencia for its architecture and Mediterranean vibe, but now I love it for its coastal mild winter weather too. Even in countries like Spain, winter brings snow and heavy coats.

Unicorns are out there as a flash trend, and an abandoned warehouse is just the perfect place to display the mood.
