A Tour Of Spain

A tour of Spain is not as simple as it looks. The itinerary has to be very well planned. Many tour operators are available to guide the tourist. However some tips are offered here so that one can plan his tour most effectively.

Where do you want to spend your holiday?

Some tourists want to spend their holiday in the midst of nature. It could be on the beach or on the top of a hill or mountain or in a reserve forest. Some would prefer visiting some of the historical places. This is important because Spain has so many places that a tourist would be certainly at a loss to decide where to go and what to see. So based on the preferences of the visitor, the itinerary could be finalized.

If one prefers to spend his time near the beach?

Spain has a long coastline of the Mediterranean Sea covering an area of over 250 kilometers. As a matter of fact some of the Hollywood films are filmed on the coast of Spain which speaks of its popularity. The beaches are immaculately clean and perfectly maintained. One can enjoy many water sports and adventure sports like deep sea diving. For example coasts of Costa Blanca, Malaga and Costa del Sol, Madrid are some of the most popular beaches in the world. Many villas and apartments are available along these coasts so that the tourist can be assured of luxurious stay and affordable rates and his holiday would be memorable.

How about hill stations?

There are many hill stations in Spain. Interestingly many of the hills run parallel to the beach. So the visitor can enjoy the beauty of the roaring sea from the top of a hill. On the other hand, those who are on the beach would enjoy the beauty of the majestic mountains staring at the sea. On the top of these mountains are some villages where the tourist can enjoy some of the popular local recipes. Many villas are available on these mountains.

Places of historical importance:

These are available in plenty. Just one piece of information will justify this statement. According to a survey made, there were about 10000 historical buildings like churches, cathedrals and castles which were built centuries ago. Of these, about 2500 structures have been preserved by the government. The rest have either become dilapidated or crumbled due to passage of time.

So plan your visit and take the help of professional tour operators in Spain.

European Tour plays last home game

The European Tour plays its last event in Europe for season 2010 when the Andalucia Valderrama Masters is played at the famed Valderrama on the Sotogrande in the south west of Spain.

The remaining European Tour events of 2010 are to be played in Asia and the Middle East the season culminating in the Dubai World Championship beginning on November 25th.

The event will be played over the Golf Club de Valderrama’s Robert Trent Jones Snr designed layout, a golf course originally built in 1985 but one that has seen plenty of drama in it short history. For many years the venue played host to the season ending Volvo Masters and famously in 1997 for the Ryder Cup in which the Europeans withstood a brilliant late challenge by the Americans to win narrowly.

This week’s field contains seven of the recent successful European Ryder Cup team headed by the world number three Martin Kaymer.

Kaymer’s rapid rise in the rankings in recent months has him on the verge of becoming the world number one. A win this week would do that as he currently stands only 0.28 of one point behind Tiger Woods.Golf Accessories

Kaymer arrives in Spain in rare form having won at each of his last three starts at the PGA Championship, the KLM Open and at the Dunhill Links.

US Open Champion Graeme McDowell is the next highest ranked player in the field. The Northern Irishman has missed only one cut in seven starts since Pebble Beach and although not at the peak he was then he is not far from it and should do well.

The Molinari brothers seems to be in the thick of every tournament they play now, Ross Fisher has been steady since his Irish Open win and Miguel Angel Jimenez has won three events on this season’s schedule.Golf Garden

Playing at home and on a golf course he has won on previously should work well for Jimenez.

One player for whom there will be much interest and affection is Jose Maria Olazabal. In just his second tournament of 2010, Olazabal played all four rounds at last week’s Castello Masters but was disqualified for inadvertently signed an incorrect scorecard in the final round. He has battled an arthritic issue in his feet for many years now but it was good to see him back playing last week.Callaway Golf

Richard Green again heads the small Australian contingent and he will be joined by Scott Strange, Mark Brown and possibly Brett Rumford.
