12 Days of Debauchery and Decadence in Spain

Hi Fodorites...

In lieu of a detailed trip report that I usually do for all my major trips (too swamped with work from that dang job I can't quit so I can support my travel addiction), I'd like to offer up my photojournal from my trip to Pamplona, Ibiza and Barcelona in July.

Hi TravelDiva

Your pictures of Barcleona brought back a lot of memories from my trip there this past May. I want to go back!!

Hi TravelDiva
The most amazing account of a trip that I've seen so far. I'm a photographer and you have given me inspiration to try to do as well. I have my own trip planned and will most likely not come close to your fantastic adventures but hope to at least give as good an accounting. good work. BS

After those pictures there is no need for words!

Loved the food pictures! I'm drooling at 7:30 AM!!!! The shots of the sunset in Ibiza were awesome.

They caught my eye as well, along with a few others

WoW!!! I am impressed. Thanks for sharing.
All that in 12 days too.Your pictures are incredible. So interesting.
You are such a pretty young lady as well. Did you put on weight after all that good food?

Loved your travelogue! Just one question: Why were there no photos of running with the bulls? Didn't you see that?

Thanks all - that means a lot to me! Yeah, I think I came home with a few extra lbs., but I'm finally getting back into my regimen (which doesn't include eating foie on a daily basis).

My BF and I are dying for a return trip but it's looking like Tahiti next year (which isn't a bad thing either). TeacherD - Re the pics of the running of the bulls...you wouldn't believe it. We did witness the running of the bulls but weren't able to get any pictures of it, it all happened so fast.

I actually am 4 pages into a detailed trip report that I haven't finished. I will post back when I'm finally able to!

Your photos are absolutely marvelous. I don't know how you two managed to take such great pics. (Mine never look like that). I like your choice of subjects as well...certainly not run of the mill.
I know what you mean about the running of the bulls...saw it many years ago and only when it was all over did I realize I hadn't taken a single photo.

Thanks for sharing your vacation with us.

I must admit...I don't think we normally take such great pics either. I have to give it up to our trusty new Canon SD700 elf (worth every penny) and the literally thousands of photo opportunities that seemed to appear around every corner.

Nothing like a breaking in a new camera in Spain!

Lovely photos, but - how shall I put this - you've got some way to go before you reach debauchery and decadence...

Thanks for posting the great photos. I was also in Barcelona and Ibiza in July, and I see that somehow I missed a whole lot of good restaurants that need to be visited.

Dear Diva:

I enjoyed your slide show. We were in Pamplona visiting family in June. Fun to see the "big change" in the town.

I would really like to read your report!!

PatrickLondon, uh, I think eating foie gras and drinking champagne every day is pretty damn decadent. As for the debauchery, I'm certainly not going to post anything beyond PG-13 rated material on Fodors.

Perhaps you have decadence and debauchery confused with hedonism...

fantastic pictures. We'll be visting Barcelona in September and can't wait. My husband loves to take photos as an amature - and I've sent him the link to your photos-since they were just fab! Which was your favorite restaurant(s)?

I'm sorry we missed you! Next time you can join us in the Casino and be really decadent.
