Yeah man...we work for living and not living for work

There's a saying "vas a ser el mas rico del cementerio" (u are gonna be the richest in the cementery)....meaning no point to get money for looking at it only and not spending to live your life...hah

Spain quite big leh... 2-3 weeks is ok if u plan to visit many places. Summer as in july/august is quite hot and dry (except of course, coast areas like barcelona, valencia, balearic islands, etc). June is a good month to travel, no so crowded since the school holidays are about to start. In spain the summer holidays for schools are moreless from mid june to early september.

Hiking in Spain quite nice la...many mountains. U can go many areas...some ideas can be

- Camino de santiago.....amazing expericence (u can walk, or by bike)
- Picos de Europa... la ruta del cares
- Selva de irati.....in Navarra area
- Ordesa
- Caminito del rey
-...

Yor main interest is hiking or cities oso?

With 12 days u can go more places than just barcelona and madrid. U can visit oso segovia and toledo cause quite near madrid....or take the bullet train to sevilla and other places in andalucia. Pais vasco nice, galicia nice with awesome seafood, san sebastian oso great place....Check for the renfe ave spain pass...maybe good option to move fast. Or rent car la, if u dare to drive in the normal side and not in the brexitland amdk bast_tard side

Is driving safe in Spain? Read the travel advice from UK government website that it's not as safe ? Seems to be having some crimes that prey on tourists driving
