Trip Report Trip Report -- Spain and Portugal, 2014

Jump to last reply

My thanks to those who helped me with my travel plans. I went to Spain and Portugal for almost three weeks in September 2014, two-week tour with Grand Circle. There was debate on this board about touring versus independent travel, but I'm glad I took the tour. I've been overseas about 20 times and this was my first time not traveling independently. I was concerned about giving up control as I'm always the one planning trips for me and my friends. But it turned out well and I had a great time and am even planning to take another Grand Circle tour.

This is the link to my website where you can read my journal and see my photos. This website is mainly for my own enjoyment and to supplement my memory that gets worse every year (lol). http://travelswithdiane.homestead.com/2014SpainPortugal01.html

I took my new camera, Sony RX100 M2, and it an amazing camera. Small (pocket-size), but mighty. I used the flash only once and that was for an outdoor photo. All the photos inside churches were without flash. I got some beautiful ceiling shots. The camera has a tilt screen so I did not have to bend back to take the shots -- hence all the ceiling shots. I just mention this in case someone is looking for a new camera.
