4.     Spain

Spain tends to enjoy delightful sunshine all year round, albeit slightly milder in the winter months. If you’re looking for scorching heat be sure to visit Spain in August, just remember your sunscreen!

5.     Portugal

The unique blend of nightlife, passion and love of life has lead backpackers to Portugal time and time again. Travelers feel at home in Portugal, even if they’ve never visited before! Be warned: the nightlife starts late, so be prepared to see the sunrise and make the most of your afternoon nap!
