Christmas time: Spanish food culture

Spanish food habits are different from the English ones: discover cultural differences and how you can deal with thanks to Easymifi, your Internet WiFi in Spain.

English and Spanish flags

Today we would like to give you a quick but complete overview of Spanish food culture. Actually, if you are interested in coming here for Christmas you should know some important Spanish habits linked to the wide world of Spanish food.

In the last post we spoke about Spanish food and some habits related to this topic. For example, the great difference in meal times between Spain and United Kingdom.

To get to the point, this huge difference could be a “big” problem: in fact, you should know that in Spain people have lunch between 2 and 3 pm. and if you are used to eat between 12 and 1 pm it could be possible that you will be very hungry at that time.

Do you want to know the Spanish solution to avoid hunger?

It’s quite easy: Spanish people are used to repeat breakfast at least once during the “morning” time. You will realize that it’s quite common to see many people have a second breakfast until 12. So, if you want to plunge into Spanish food habits, have another breakfast and have lunch at 2 pm (more or less).

Of course, if you don’t know where to go, you’ll need connection to choose the best option looking at customers reviews into TripAdvisor or similars. To do this, Easymifi is the solution: use the Internet Wifi that the Easymifi Hotspot provides you!

 

Beyond the lunch time difference, you should also know that lunch is the main meal in Spain. It’s not so complicated to guess why it is like this: if you have dinner at 9 or 10 pm maybe it’s better not to eat too much if you want to sleep well.

But, what does it happen if you have an “important” lunch?

That the amount of food you have eaten affects you and can induce you to sleep. This is how siesta was born many years ago, as an unavoidable consequence of eating so late and so much.

Prepare yourself to a different way of living and start to think different. In every case, spend your Christmas time in Spain doesn’t mean that you have to forget your English world: stay connected to social media and don’t lose any news from your group of English friends! Easymifi provides you an Internet WiFi Connection at full speed. Share your Spanish adventure with the people you care about!

 

See you next week!

 

Long term rentals in Spain: Spanish food variety

Prepare yourself to a rich food culture. Discover how to enjoy food in your long term stay with Easymifi, your internet wifi in Spain.

If you know how to move in Spain, we are quite sure that a very important aspect if you have some long term rentals in Spain is to have an idea of what you are going to eat. Long term rentals in Spain mean a huge immersion in Spanish culture and the best you can do is, at least, prepare your mind and stomach to a new environment.

As we always say, the access to information and internet is crucial and for this reason we invite you to stay connected and use the internet wifi in Spain provided by Easymifi.

Before starting with the post, we would like to remember that Easymifi offers a new service to pick up your MiFi at Barcelona and Madrid Airports: for further information, click on Madrid or Barcelona.

To go straight to the point, the first thing you should consider about Spanish food is that you’ll have a lot of different choices. We don’t want to debate here to decide if it is the best or not the best cuisine in the world, but we are sure that one of its characteristics is to be varied.

It doesn’t matter if you like meat or fish, if you are vegetarian, if you prefer sweet to salty or if you are following a diet: Spanish food provides a great range of tastes and options.

Look at the picture here below!

From left to right and bottom up: croquettes, Iberian ham, broken eggs with pork sausage and a cuttlefish sandwich

We have just talked about Spanish cuisine variety. It’s true: however, if you live in London for example, maybe here in Spain you won’t find the same variety from the point of view of how many different cuisines you can enjoy. I mean, London is very famous because it’s a city that can offer a great range of cuisines. We can say that in Spain (despite big cities have, of course, a lot of various kinds of cuisines) the situation is quite different: there are much more Spanish restaurants than other ones and some cuisines like Indian, Chinese or Turkish (except for Granada, a city with an historical kebab tradition) are not so well represented as in the Uk.

We want to finish this post remembering that meals times in Spain are completely different from the English ones. In Spain you have lunch between 2 and 3 p.m. (or later, it depends in the season as well) and dinner between 9 and 10 p.m. (the same for lunch, it’s not so uncommon have dinner at 11 p.m when it’s very hot).

Are you ready to deal with this change of habits? As we have already said before, the only way to “survive” is to keep the communication with your loved country.

Stay connected with the internet wifi in Spain provided by Easymifi and enjoy your long term rentals in Spain without any kind of worry like: “Where is the best restaurant here?”. Open TripAdvisor and choose one!

Long term rentals in Spain: how to move in Spain

If you have chosen a long term rental in Spain and you are thinking of moving, you need to know how to do it. Discover it with Easymifi, your Spanish mifi.

 

If you are going to stay here for a long time (more than 30 days), it’s possible that you are interested in visiting an Autonomous Community or the most important cities of Spain: if it is like this, it’s important to know how to move and the best way to do it.

If you go to Madrid or Barcelona, the biggest cities in Spain, and you only want to stay there in order to discover every secret of these historical and famous cities, we suggest you to read our previous post.

But if you are planning to visit an Autonomous Community or several cities in Spain, keep on reading.

The best options to visit an Autonomous Community are:

-        Trains: there a lot of different trains that can help you reach the cities you want to visit inside the Autonomous Community you have chosen.

Our advice is to go to the web page of Renfe: http://www.renfe.com/viajeros/mediadistancia/mapas_y_trayectos/Andalucia.html

Use this URL and you could see all the connections from the specific Autonomous Community you are interested in.

-        Autobuses: if your plan is to visit only a Community, to move by autobus can be a great idea. Look at Alsa web page, one of the leaders in the autobus market, and discover how long and how much the journey is.

If you’re going to visit several cities in Spain, maybe you should include more options like:

-        Airplanes: despite trains are a good way to move among the most important cities of Spain (with the high-speed AVE a trip Barcelona-Madrid only lasts 2 hours and 30 minutes), some times buy an airplane ticket is better. Actually, if you want to go from Barcelona to Málaga (for example), an airplane ticket could be better because:

it’s cheaper: many times, (especially if you book with low cost airlines) an airplane ticket is cheaper.

It’s faster: Barcelona-Malaga with AVE means a 6 hours trip, while by airplane it’s less than 2 hours long.

 

So, prepare yourself to deal with the Spanish transports: as you already know the best way to make the right decision is choosing among different alternatives.

And to do this, you need an internet connection that works in all Spain, with no limits and easy to carry with you. Easymifi is a mifi rental in Spain with these characteristics and you can book it from only 4,5€ a day!

What are you waiting for? Enjoy your long stay with Easymifi and stay connected!
