There is a lot of kissing in Spain. From young people passionately making out in the streets, to kissing new and old friends hello, to signing off emails with “besos” (that’s kisses in Spanish), kisses here are everywhere. There is no sense in resisting.

Aside from romantic kisses, there’s the ever-present double cheek air kiss hello and goodbye and it’s an important part of Spanish culture. It’s not a full-fledged kiss, rather you lightly touch cheeks (first the right, the left) while kissing the air. Females cheek kiss their female and male friends hello, as well as new people to whom they’ve just been introduced. Among men, it’s more common to give a handshake or a hug hello.
