Planning a quick weekend getaway

Nothing like planning a vacation to get you going to being better again! I've got lots of work pending yet, but can't help thinking what it would be like to plan a vacation to a far off place. I've been fascinated with Spain ever since I read James Michener's book Iberia, which brought about a lifelong (well, so far at least) passion for all things Spanish, especially in terms of decor, food and music. Barcelona Hotels are still available at really good rates for this summer, especially in the Ramblas and Sargada Familia areas, where it's possible to get a really good four star hotel starting at 119 Euros. What is really quite unbelievable is that it's possible to get last minute hotel deals at 2 star to 5 star luxury hotels and even at hostels, so a quick weekend getaway thought of at the last minute might end up cheaper than planning months in advance.
