19 Things That Spain Does Better Than The U.S.
American “tapas bars” just don’t cut it…
Don’t get me wrong, I love living in the United States and I’m a proud New Yorker for life, but if there were one place I would move to, it would probably be Spain.
I lived in Barcelona for five months on a study abroad program in college, and I traveled around the country to different regions from Basque Country to Andalucia. And since my semester abroad, I’ve returned to Spain almost every year. I guess I just can’t stay away, thanks to these things that Spain does better than the US.
The wine…especially the cava
The laid-back, relaxed pace of things
The freshly squeezed juice
The beaches (~swoon~)
The jamón 🤤🤤🤤
The late dinner hour
The work-life balance
The tapas bars
The food markets
The public transportation
The incredibly affordable budget flights
The lengthy midweek lunch hour
The olive oil
The candy stores
The drinking culture
The Mediterranean climate
And finally, the cuisine
Plus, tapas are pretty much the perfect meal because you get to try little bites of so many delicious things.
