Spain is great because it allows you to hop around world-renowned places like Barcelona, Madrid, Andalusia, and Seville. I have personally been to Barcelona and Madrid. Barca was surprisingly affordable when I went (September). Even a really nice boutique hotel in El Born was about 175/night. Madrid is also great and not expensive. Was only there for two days and it’s not as festive/active as Barca.

Also, if you visit Europe, you don’t need to just stay in one country. Flights are typically affordable (like $60-$70) to hop from city to city (like Barcelona to Lisbon).

There are also boats you can take. Took a boat for super cheap from Barcelona to Italy. Also took a boat from Italy to Greece. Very cheap. The train systems are good too.

Not sure Europe in February makes sense to me unless you're doing a ski destination. Berlin or London can also work since there's mostly indoor attractions. lol at people recommend island destinations in february

i would recommend Cape Town, Sydney, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Lima, Marrakech etc.

Good point. On that note, I recommend Sayulita, Mexico. Great surf town, good eats, a real gem.
