MaiTaiTom says, "Gracias España!"

Wow! What a fantastic trip. djkbooks will be happy to know I didn't cough once in three weeks so the citizens of Spain are currently safe and out of quarantine. We walked about 200 miles in our 20 days (why use public transportation when you have two feet, although the occasional taxi came in handy).

Thanks to thirst quenching GinTonics, we survived and were able to get our 5 A Day at the same time (never have had strawberries in a GT until this trip). I can still taste those GinTonics and wonderful Spanish wine, however I don't mind waiting a couple of years to try more tapas.

The four of us enjoyed virtually every place we visited in Spain (so many incredible sights and sites), and the people we met in Spain could not have been nicer. Although we loved the Alhambra, our consensus puts it at #2 on our Best Attraction list (which is long). The disappointments were few, but enough for a "Special" list as well.

We are now going through our thousands of photos and someday there will be a much too long (as per usual) trip report with photos. First we have to make serious amends with the cats and the corgis, who are contemplating a mutiny if we ever leave them for this long again.

Finally: A big "muchas gracias" to everyone on this board who assisted me in my Spain planning, which helped make this yet another trip of a lifetime! Once again, I count my blessings on how lucky I am to be able to travel.

España rocks! If you have never been…book your trip now. Until the TR…adios!
