This is so relatable to me because I felt a lot of the same ways before I went on my first solo trip to Spain last year. I was also super wary of tapas bars because they just seemed too overwhelming! I had a lot of similar fears but came to many of the same realizations you did — that if you just stay calm, trust your gut, and do your research you should, for the most part, be perfectly fine. Thanks for sharing!
