In December 2018 I got the opportunity to travel to Alicante and check out nearby places. In my extensive Alicante travel guide I already wrote about the best places to visit and the best things to do and also mentioned some day trips. To let you make the most of your Alicante holidays I will explain what to see where in this travel blog about day trips from Alicante.
Lately I flew over from Hungary to Alicante to get a taste of the beautiful Costa Blanca in Spain. Not only in the UK holidays to Alicante are popular there are many direct flights landing on Alicante Airport from Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia. For many reasons the Alicante province became a favorite weekend city break from travelers from Northern Europe. In this blog post I will take you with me on what to do in Alicante. A complete guide to make the most of your weekend break.
When you are traveling to Spain I am pretty sure you want to keep the people back home up to date about how things are going on your trip. Surely you don’t want your Spain holiday to get ruined by outrageous roaming costs and therefore I recommend you buying a sim card in Spain. It is simple, just walk in to any mobile provider shop and ask for a prepaid Spain sim card, put it in your phone, activate it and within a minute your Spain sim card is connected.
It was after midnight and it was actually my birthday when I arrived in Barcelona. As a full time professional travel blogger I don’t have a phone contract but I always want to be connected. So when I arrived at any given airport I straight away want to buy a sim card for tourists. Finding a Spain sim card on arrival was pretty shit as all the shops were closed, so I had to come back the next morning.
Barcelona is a very popular destination in Europe for a short weekend city break. But even for a longer beach holiday this is a favorite vacation city for many people. What makes Barcelona so popular? The climate, the architecture, the landmarks, the squares, the history and last but not least its perfect location. Barcelona is one of the few cities in the world that is not just an amazing city to stroll through but also has a proper beach. It is located along the The Mediterranean Sea and this is what makes Barcelona such a great destination.
