Eight No Nos When Traveling in Spain


Just a couple of days ago my friend and I were trying to find the pizza joint that we had made a reservation at when we turned to a street and my heart suddenly dropped. “Oh my god, this can’t be the place where we’re having pizza, this is the tourist trap street!!” I said panicking. To much of my relief, the pizza place wasn't on there and we had just made an early turn. But looking at the tourist ally, with all of the waiters trying to fish you into the restaurant, the big, obnoxious signs yelling out “authentic tapas,” I just felt like I had to run for the hills…or just make a blog post on what NOT to do when visiting Spain.
