My Spanish Loves:

Discovering the next great geographical area for villas, food, landscapes, and relaxation – Costa Brava in Catalan.

Taking in the colors, shapes, sounds and smells of the La Boqueria market in Barcelona.

Observing the racing fan culture at the Formula 1 race in Valencia.

A big part of my time in Spain was spent walking the Camino de Santiago – a 500 mile, 33 day hike from Pamplona to Santiago.

Hotels in Spain:

Food in Spain:

I experienced a meal I will never forget at the best restaurant in the world.

 Spain Pictures:

If you love oogling over pictures of gorgeous landscapes and inspiring architecture, you should get yourself over to my Spain picture gallery right away.  Vamos!
