  1. I am so glad I ‘stumbled’ upon Women Who Travel Solo & Michelle’s review of Spain. At 64, I am traveling solo to Spain for 3 weeks–flying in/out of Madrid, but renting a car to visit the Eastern half of Spain. I have traveled solo all over the U.S. but never abroad; and though I have no hesitations about my trip to Spain, several close friends are trying to discourage me from going. After reading this and other posts on this site, I am encouraged and more enthused than ever! Thanks!!

    • Hey there Patti! That’s really awesome to hear you are taking your first solo trip abroad in Spain. Good on you! Keep on being bold and I hope you have a wonderful trip!

    I am heading to Bath, England next year in June and hope to visit Spain while I am there to take advantage of the relative proximity. [When you live in Perth, W Australia it’s a trek to anywhere the other side of the world… Enjoyed Micehlle’s review. Just one thing. I think Michelle speaks Spanish? How would I get on with NO skill in that area? 59 next year. Not bothered about solo travel. Wouold be good to meet up with a kindred spirit though so if anyoen else out there is making a similar trip :) post a comment.

    • Hi Carrie! Michelle does speak Spanish, but in many places in Spain, especially Madrid and Barcelona, there are many English speakers around so even if you don’t speak the language you should be able to get around just fine. Have a great trip!

      Hi Margaret,
      I just returned from a solo trip to Spain and, after traveling around the Castile-La Mancha region, I drove to Barcelona and spent 5 nights at Hotel Gaudi in the Gothic Quarter. It is a charming small hotel, with all the amenities one could want (breakfast buffet, restaurant, bar, gym, rooftop lounging, etc.). I thought it was very affordable; the front desk and wait-staff were very friendly; taxis & busses are 1/2 block away; one can walk easily on La Ramble, and I felt safe in the Gothic Quarter, even late in the evening. Check it out! http://www.hotelgaudibarcelona.com

        Thank you Patti for that. I was looking at hotels in the Gothic area and that hotel was on my shortlist. Thanks so much for the recommendation.
