Southern Spain (and Barcelona too)

I am headed to Andalusia/ Southern Spain

Home to Moorish castles like the above pictured Real Alcazar (Water Gardens of Dorn to Game of Thrones fans), gorgeous gardens and good food!

I will be meeting with various tour operators and investigating experiences across the country.

Feel free to follow along and send me your questions too.

What do you want to to know about the Andalucian region of Spain?

How Madrid is like these strawberries

Marvelous Madrid! Posted on Mon, April 16, 2018 00:24:22

A strange post heading but it fits. Like these palm sized berries (in the Mercado San Miguel) Madrid is bigger than it seems, each piece a beauty in its’ own right, and together a marvelous display. With it’s beautiful buildings, historic sights, and pedestrian only plazas Spain’s capitol city is ripe and ready for you to explore! Here are a few more pictures, I would need a book to show them all.
Gardens of the Palacio Real (Royal Palace) Madrid
One of the city’s gates

Just an average building along the Gran Via (Madrid’s 5th Ave or Miracle Mile)

The historic Plaza De Villa

Buen Retiro park

Wide pedestrian only areas are lined with shops and restaurants leading to more plazas waiting to be explored.

Gracious buildings abound

The Palacio Real (Royal Palace)

Beautifully decorated building facade
Vibrant nightlife in a city where 9pm (2100 by the clocks here) is on the early side for dinner.

There is so much more to see just a few posted pictures can’t do justice to this wonderful place, you just have to “taste” it for yourself!

First Impressions

Marvelous Madrid! Posted on Fri, April 13, 2018 22:46:08

Though one of the world’s largest cities Madrid’s collection of Plazas, pedestrian only areas and quaint narrow streets give the feel of small neighborhoods. It’s only been one day but so far the architecture and preponderance of tempting foods have certainly stood out. Tonight was a Tapas Tour with Devour Madrid – great food, interesting history and tons of great suggestions on where to eat. It was a great way to start the trip!
