Spain bucketlist

I’m certain that most people have some sort of bucket-list. A list of things you want to do before you die. Well, I have a Spain bucket-list. Things and places I want to see while I’m here before my last day on earth. I also have a food bucket-list but that’ll be a whole different post. So I thought I’d share my list of places and things I want to see in this beautiful country and get some feedback from you guys to see if you think I should add anything and if you’ve been to any of these places before.

BUNOL, SPAIN - AUGUST 26: Revellers pelt each other with tomatoes during the world's biggest tomato fight at La Tomatina festival on August 26, 2009 in Bunol, Spain. More than 45000 people from all over the world descended on the small Valencian town to participate in this year's La Tomatina festival, with the local town hall estimating that over 100 tons of rotten and over-ripe tomatoes were thrown.
