S = Spain
Spain has to be one of my favourite places in the world to visit. I see, to love everything about it – the food, the music, the architecture, the people. There is just so much to do and see and so much diversity. So much, in fact, that I am already planning for my next visit; which, unfortunately will not be until 2015. But I leave a piece of me heart there each time I go. Here are some of my highlights of four places: Malaga, Madrid, Toledo and, of course, Barcelona.
In Malaga, I spent a lot of time wandering through the fortress that overlooks the city and port, visiting the cathedral and wandering through the park that runs along the port.
Madrid is filled with people and music. I there were two impromptu drumming performances that I stumbled upon while wandering through the city. I was also there the night FC Barcelona was playing for the Euro Cup final – and I got the watch the game with a group of people sitting in the kitchen of a restaurant (before I headed back to Barcelona to celebrate the win in the streets!). I also spent a lovely Sunday in Retiro Park and meet more musicians. I do love Latin music!
Toledo is another walled city with a magnificent cathedral, marzipan and winding streets.
And then, of course, there is walking down Las Ramblas in in Barcelona.
For me, Spain is filled with life – and life cannot get better than this!
