Travel question

7 07 2010

We’ve caught the travel bug and the next big destination, after Australia this month, is Spain/Portugal next year.

The question is: Northern or Southern Spain? Help me out. This is Pamplona, in Northern Spain.

PAMPLONA, SPAIN - JULY 06: Revellers celebrate during the Chupinazo at the official opening on the first day of the San Fermin running-of-the-bulls on July 6, 2010 in Pamplona, Spain. Fighting bulls are run through the historic heart of Pamplona for eight days starting July 7th in this fiesta made famous by the 1926 novel of U.S. writer Ernest Hemmingway called 'The Sun Also Rises'.

And here is Gibraltar (the town) in Southern Spain.

GIBRALTAR - MAY 19:  A Couple enjoys the fine weather on May 19, 2009 in the center of Gibraltar. Tourism continues to be of considerable importance to the economy of the self-governing overseas territory of Gibraltar located near the most southern tip of Spain.

So we need some help from anyone who has been to both places. Which tour should we take: the north, with the Basque country and Barcelona and Leon, or the south, with Sevilla, Morocco and Granada? Please feel free to comment.

As a resident of Gibraltar, I will obviously suggest the Southern Spain + Gibraltar tour.

It is pretty easy to get a ferry to Morocco as well, meaning that you could visit two different continents in one holiday.

As a lover of all things Balearic, I will recommend Mallorca/Menorca.
