Armchair travel - Photos of Spain and Portugal

Why not? The other threads are great fun. Our hearts go out to the good people of the Iberian peninsula in these frightening days.

Well, my recent trip to Spain was cut short and my planned trip to Portugal won't be happening, but I do have a few photos from Barcelona. Do you think I'll get booted off Fodor's if I post a photo of the dick waffle?

Beautiful images. The only time I went to Spain was when I was about 10, for a family holiday, and I don't think that I still have my photos. They would be lousy anyway...
Hence I cannot share anything here. The more I am enjoying yours!

I think most of us are canceling something. We canceled a British Columbia trip & our trip to India in the fall. Aside from the actual virus threat, I really wonder if we may see some airlines & hotels disappear - along with deposits etc.

There is always next year . . .

I'm sharing more pics because this thread is making me happy.


had to capture the flag

I put this image on my xmas cards this year

Could have stayed in this room forever. Men were tiny back then.

This became my favorite lunch (minus the wine) after returning home.

We don’t take photos....I occasionally snap a pic with my phone
Spain is our favorite country, we visit every year.
I had booked hotel in Madrid
for the first week in May and purchased tickets for Madrid Open
( tannins), exactly what I did the year before.
It was not to be...but my disappointment is irrelevant
compared to devastation in Spain.
Next year..🇪🇸
