Bangalore the capital city of the southern state of Karnataka and the IT capital of India is an amazing destination in itself. How it is not just about IT but Bangalore is the main hub for biotechnology as well. It is home to India’s largest Biotechnology Company, Biocon. Lalbagh Garden in the centre of the city is not only home to over a 1000 species of different plants but it also houses the oldest rock formations on earth. The Lal Bagh Rock dates back to over 3000 million years ago. Freedom Park in Sheshadri Road was a Central Jail and during the emergency in 1975 Atal Bihari Vajpayee and L. K. Advani were arrested and jailed here. Bangalore is the only city in the world that has the commercial and defence airport running from the same strip. The Kempegowda International Airport is the third busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic in the country and is expected to increase because of which its expansion plans are already underway. Suggestions on how to reach Spain from Bangalore are given below
By Air: Bangalore has a hi-tech and well equipped international airport. The Kempegowda International Airport handles over 23 million passengers annually. Bangalore is well connected with major destinations across Spain. Such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Ibiza, Seville, Malaga, Majorca, Las Palmas, Bilbao, Lanzarote, Santa Cruz de la Palma, Santiago de Compostela, A Coruna, Asturias and Granada. Major airlines connecting Bangalore with these cities are Air India, Alitalia, Aeroflot, Air France, Lufthansa, Etihad Jet Airways, Emirates, Air Europa, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, SWISS, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways and many more.
By rail: Hypothetically you can travel from Bangalore to Spain by train but it will be highly inconvenient and exhausting. There are still no railway links between India and any European countries at present. Railway connectivity between Asia and European countries is only being considered for trade purposes and it is still not completed. If you want to experience Spain instead of just travelling to Spain then trains are the way to go. The scenic beauty and varied culture is best observed and enjoyed through this mode of transport. Plus it is really convenient. Several trains connect Spain directly to many European countries such as France, Italy, Switzerland and others. Eurail Spain connects many Spanish destinations such as Barcelona, Madrid, Granada, Seville and Valencia. Eurail Spain also has global passes which gives you the freedom to travel all over Spain and 27 other European destinations.
By road: This would definitely be the ultimate road trip if ever there was one. Actually there is one. A family of four has actually taken a road trip from Bangalore all the way to France via Spain and it was one of the most successful and enthralling one trip ever. The Baid family undertook this journey and their chosen mode of transport was a Fiat Linea Tjet. Their chosen route was Bangalore to Nepal on to China then Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Italy, then crossing the Swiss Alps, Spain and on to France. Along the way they visited some awesome locations. It took them 111 days to complete the trip.
