How would you describe Spain? I'm looking for a phrase that would sum up the culture of Spain and need help with it. It's for a website I'm making for a trip that my classmates and I are taking. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks Again,
-Vik

Vik: Spain is two things, 1st, a political subdivision of Europe, 2nd, it is a state of mind. To understand the second point you have to go there yourself. Once you are there, you will either not want to leave, or always be trying to get back. It really is not something that someone can tell you about you have to see it for yourself. Go and enjoy. smile cool

I have to second that.

Can you spare some time and finances for some field research? aka visit Spain, Madrid?

It would be kind of abstract and/or conflicting getting different accounts from different people's experiences.

Good luck,

Old, historic, tragic, familiar, disarray and wonderful.

I guess where you live is how you describe Spain. Living in New York City made me compared Spain as a New Yorker.

If it were possible to sum up Spain's culture in a single phrase, it would have to be something like: Nature's handiwork that brings together bountiful Oceans and snow-capped mountains, and the Arts, the closest thing there is to Heaven, on this earth.

Thank you all for the responses, keep them comming if you can. Just to clarify things, we are headed there next summer and the site is to keep everyone that's going informed of what's going on with fund raising and meetings. ^_^

One of the main reasons I'm going is because my grandfather's family is from Bosque, and although on this trip we won't be going there, I would like to see this beautiful country that I've heard so much about. ^_^

Thanks again. You guys are incredibly helpful.

Where is Bosque?

Literally translated, Bosque means 'Forest.'
