I used to say that Spain was my second favourite place after Oz, until I visited Portugal. Today I include all of Iberia. I know they have both been knocked about by the GFC but they have a charm that really gets to me. Now Barcelona is a great city and the Balearic Islands, particularly Menorca and Formentara are wonderful but my favourite parts run from the Basque country across to Galicia and down.

Interestingly enough I found Galicia to be very much like Portugal to the point that I often wonder if it shouldn't be Portuguese rather than Spanish. Given that my love of both countries is strong that is not meant to be taking a hit at Spain or Portugal, just that Galicia seems to have a somewhat Portuguese feel to it. I guess given the geography that is not surprising.

As for the people, I've found them universally to my liking though of course very different across the peninsular. Here at SailNet we've had some fine Iberians on board. Some sadly no longer posting but our friend Paulo (PCP) is someone I'd love to meet and go for a sail with while I spent a wonderful few days with Alex (Giulietta) a couple of years back.

I love Galicia. I lived in Santiago de Compostela for almost a year while at Uni. Number 7 Anguish St. Hung out at the bar Vino. Now I have a boat, I'd love to hit the rias baixas again!

Welcome to SailNet. Always good to see folk from Iberia. Galicia is one of my favourite places in Spain, good people, great food and fantastic scenery. I've only ever toured the area by car but to cruise the Spanish Biscay coast, Galicia and Portugal by sail is high on my wish list.
