We left home on May 17 and traveled to Spain, Portugal and California before returning home on June 23. I am going to try to write about that some. It was our first long post-retirement trip. There may or may not be others – but I think we are going to do some getaways every year during Merida’s hottest times.
We went to (in chronological order) Barcelona, Granada, Almunecar, Estepona, Seville, Lagos, Lisbon, Porto and Madrid. I plan on doing a post on each city, along with our experiences at some other places we visited. It was a big trip for us that included some “bucket list” things for each of us.
Kathy wanted to see Barcelona and modernista architecture, particularly Gaudi’s work, while she could still see fairly well. I wanted to see Portugal, particularly Cape Sagres; missions accomplished.
For now, a few photos that were taken in Barcelona. Later, at some unspecified time, a post on Barcelona. One may not be enough for that city, where we spent five days.
