I am looking for a travel buddy (preferably female) to explore Spain and Portugal with me this March. I have traveled with people from Lonely Planet's Thorn Tree forum before and had a blast! My friends here mostly cannot afford or do not have flexible PTO to travel with, so that is primarily why I am doing this solo.
Some of the things I like to do when travelling include: Try local food/drinks, have a night or two out, explore culturally important parts of each place, hike if possible (nothing major, I don't hike super often), take pictures, make new friends, do all of the above on a budget (not TOO strict but saving where I can).
If this sounds at all like something you would like to do, let me know! My dates are flexible but ideally I want to do at least 10 days split between Spain and Portugal. A sample itinerary I love is linked below. Thank you!
