This week’s featured destination expert wants you to jump in with both feet.

If you’ve ever heard of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, you know taking on Spain with two feet can be a profound experience. But this popular trek isn’t the only walking opportunity the country affords.

Just ask Matador’s destination expert for Spain, El Lobo.

Arabesque in Andalucia

For the past 11 years, he’s been leading “cultural walking tours” through Andalucia (southern Spain) during the summer.

It’s a sweet gig, says El Lobo, because it lets him “get back there once a year to drink in the culture, which is seductive, intoxicating, and vibrant.”

To find out more about the tours, visit the website for Olé Spain.

And here’s some more about this week’s expert:

I’m fired up on: writing, drawing, flamenco, bullfights, traveling with my wife and kids, hoops, las playas de España
Why I travel: It’s a rush. The people are so kind. New beverages to imbibe. The heat.
About me: I am also always on the lookout for a standout Spanish basketball player, as I also teach Spanish and coach the varsity basketball team back home in Charm City.

What can El Lobo do for you? All you have to do is ask. As he says,

I’m eager to help travelers who have questions about Spain.

So what are you waiting for? Get on over to his Matador profile and fire away!
