Lifestyle journalist Veerle Helsen went 'out-of-office' for six months, bought an old camper and travelled by herself along the Spanish and Portuguese coastline. Ever true to her motto "surf, see, sleep & eat", she combines three of her passions in this book: surfing, travelling and discovering hidden gems. How about a heavenly holiday mansion where there's a tree growing through the roof? Or an architectural public swimming pool that's hidden between rocks and the sea? She searched and found camper spots so quiet she could stay there for days without seeing another soul. Secret beaches that aren't indicated on the map where one can sit back and watch the waves. Veerle Helsen dismisses the classic tourist image of Spain and Portugal and writes about a completely different world: untouched, fierce and free, with little beach bars serving the very fish they caught earlier that day, and roads wrapping themselves around cliffs and dunes, sheltered by pine trees and maintaining the view of sandcastles on the beach. While she drove, her drone was beside her on the passenger seat and her surf board was on the roof. This guide transcends the clichés and avoids the classic tourist traps. 'Sea' you soon!

An Open Access edition of this book is available on the Liverpool University Press website and the OAPEN library. Spanish Spaces is a pioneering study that marries contemporary cultural geography with contemporary Spanish culture. The field of cultural geography has grown both extensively and rapidly, as has the field of cultural analysis and debate on Spanish cultural texts; yet despite a convergence in study between cultural geography (and cultural studies more widely) and cultural texts themselves, this has made little impact to date within the area of contemporary Spanish cultural studies. Yet Spain’s varied terrain, with complex negotiations between rural, urban and coastal (negotiations that have on occasion spilled over into political and violent conflict), and perhaps its very lack of a contemporary landscape tradition familiar to British and German cultural studies, offer the opportunity for fresh insights into questions of landscape, space and place. Drawing on case studies from contemporary Spanish film and literature, Davies explores the themes of memory and forgetting, nationalism and terrorism, crime and detection, gender, tourism and immigration, investigating what it means to think of space and places in specifically Spanish terms.

Here are island hideaways on the tropical beaches of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and on the windswept North Atlantic shores of Harris, where Scottish crofters handweave their famous tweed. Visit mountain aeries from the Himalaya to the Pyrenees, secret realms from the harshly beautiful desertscapes of the Sahara to the lush rain forests of Costa Rica, or the winding alleys of a village tucked into the foothills of the Alps. Twenty-eight destinations in all, each place has its own unique flavor and appeal, yet shares a kind of privacy and authenticity all too rare in our hectic, modern world.
