I was so excited to finally be able to visit this amazing place.
Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao
I loved this puppy! I would crane my neck to catch glimpses of it whenever I was close by.
Pintxos bar-hopping with MP.
Beautiful beach and promenade.
Alhambra Complex, Granada
The gardens in the Generalife took 40 years to complete.
There were many beautiful courtyards to discover. Each with the sound of running water which is the central theme to the complex.
Lion’s Court in the Palace. The Palace restricts numbers to 300 people every 30 minutes and so you must book your time slot. It was well worth the effort as the Palace was extraordinary.
Oro Del Desierto Olive Oil Factory, Tabernas
Family-owned organic olive oil farm and factory. It was so interesting to learn about the process and reasons why this company won first and third place for their products.
Olive and almond growing area. I didn’t know about the almond production so it was fascinating to drive through acres and acres of almond groves.
The red marble is from the Alicante area and the pattern of this promenade makes the path look 3D when you’re standing on it. So pretty.
Arts and Science Centre, Valencia
With a building budget of 300 million and then ending up costing 3 times that… it was a wonder. Ultra modern and definitely eye-catching.
Arts and Sciences Centre, Valencia
No photo-shop needed at all. The blue sky and water feature accentuated the surrounding artwork.
Old Town, Valencia
We had a 3.5 hour walking tour with a high school history teacher as our guide. He was great fun and full of passion for his home town; a perfect guide..
San Nicolas Church, Valencia
The Sistine Chapel of Spain. Stunning.
Oliva, Costa Blanca
It should say something about a restaurant when everyone dining there is Spanish and are all eating paella. Hands down the best paella of the trip.
Sineu hosts a massive market every Wednesday. Stalls are set up all through the small town and was buzzing with activity.
We visited an old friend of RR who owns a finca hotel on the outskirts of Calvia. He’s been so busy since he took over ownership that when we asked about the types of trees, I loved his answer of ‘No idea!’. Well, not yet anyway.
North western coastline, Mallorca
A winding mountainous road takes you to some beautiful viewing points and old towns.
