    My first piece of advice is "slow down"!

    Six countries in 30 days is a crazy pace if they are all new places. It's fine if you've visited a place before and already have a vibe for the city, but otherwise you might as well just watch travel documentaries.

    Believe it or not, even in Europe, which is tiny compared to North America, it still takes time to get places. Even a trip between London and Paris by plane takes the better part of a day when you add an hour to get to the airport, a couple hours at the airport, the flight, then transit to your hotel and time to chill out afterwards.

    Then, you gotta plan on a few recovery days, assuming you were serious about the clubbing question....you'll end your vacation regretting you did not have time to do everything u wanted.

    If I were u I would ditch Sweden and Italy (even Portugal) and do them another time.

    I've been to more than 40 countries, and this is what works for me....but you gotta do what u feel is best for u.

    Spain is a great place to visit for tourists, especially if you like history and architecture. Spain has more World Heritage Sites then any other country in the world and many of those are in southern Spain within a few hours drive of where we live.

    Also, the town where we live, Torremolinos, is one of the gay meccas in Europe, being very far south so the weather is terrific and being very tolerant so gay people are just treated like every one else. Consequently, we have the largest concentration of gay venues in the south of Spain, beaches, bars, discos, baths, etc.

    Have a good time and if you have any specific questions about the south of Spain, your welcome to contact me by email.

    If you're going to Barcelona, you should drop by the beautiful nearby beach town of Sitges. It's the gayest town I've ever been to.

    In Barcelona, L'Eixample is the gay area. Plenty of gay bars and clubs near Universitat and Urgell stations.

    In London, you'd either want to check out Old Compton Street or Vauxhall.
