See the daylight hours out with sunset at the original Café del Mar and a munch worthy meal of fresh seafood. Accommodation: Amistat Island Hostel (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5: Ibiza

Day 6: Ibiza to Valencia

Ibiza Muchas gracias, Ibiza. Today we wave goodbye to our new favourite party paradise and head back to the mainland. Save the sobs – we have plenty of balmy nights and adventure left ahead of us. Valencia After our Mediterranean Sea sail & a short bout by land, we’ll find ourselves in Valencia, where crumbling coloured buildings meet spaceship looking architecture, and parks and fountains fill the streets. Step one of our cultural immersion will be to sign up for a cook off & dinner – Valencia is the birthplace of Spain’s much adored paella dish after all. Accommodation: Hotel Mas Camarena Valencia (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast

Day 7: Valencia to Madrid

Valencia Though we’ll feel sincere love for Spain’s third largest city, we won't be dwelling on sad feels too much given our final destination. Pack your bags, we’re headed to Madrid. Toledo Synagogues, churches and medieval buildings sit atop the hill town of Toledo. We'll uncover the city's gothic cathedral, the famous Renaissance sculptor, painter and architect El Greco’s house and the site of sieges, revolutions and treason. Just another pit-stop in our life in the glorious Spain. Madrid From rooftop bars to 1920’s architecture, Madrid holds an unassuming charm and multi-layered persona that’s hard to resist. We’ll bunker down here for the rest of our trip, getting acquainted with every nook and cranny. Accommodation: Bluesock Hostels Madrid (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today is yours to uncover the city, with a full free day giving you the chance to venture through the heart of Spain's capital to find out what makes it so special.

Then toast our final night with an optional Farewell Española dinner, saving your goodbye tears for the AM. Accommodation: Generator Madrid (or similar) Included Meals: Breakfast

Day 9: Madrid

Our last morning on trip is a license to get a little somber, then patch things up by eating churros for breakfast. We’ll say our goodbyes before going our separate ways, and quickly putting more travels in the pipeline. Included Meals: Breakfast
