I feel guilty, I have been biased about Spain. We always went to France on summer-holidays, thinking this country would offer all we wanted for a three weeks escape. And it did in every way, we enjoyed the holidays in the camp-grounds, and later when wealth arrived in rented summer-houses in Provence, hugely. Still the early days in beat-up old cars on cheap camps brings the fondest memories. Again teaching you that money can't buy happiness.
And so it never occurred to me that Spain could offer the same, and maybe more. After several weeks touring Spain I have grown a love for her. The country-side seems more spacious and people just a bit more relaxed, a bit more laid-back.
So this experience was another lesson of life, and I've learned many over the past few years, - never assume to know anything before you have experienced it yourself, never build an emotional or scientific opinion before you have set ground on the soil yourself, with your own bare feet.
This goes for all matter in life, never judge people on hear-say and rumors; judge for yourself and give caution to other people's opinions. As you will know we are all unique in our very own way, and therefor we will never think exactly the same of other humans; we will judge them differently. Build your own standpoint on all matters in life, there's no right or wrong, all that counts is your own judgement.
