Our final days in Spain were spent wandering around Sevilla and spending time with the family there, and two days in Barcelona before we flew home to San Francisco. Though there aren’t as many pictures some of them are quite good. Here they are. You can view other photos from our adventures in Castelló d’Empúries, Sevilla and Granada in the photo galleries.
I hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I loved taking them and experiencing these places. Thanks!Comments Off | Catergorized: andalucia catalonia food-drink life photos
The third set of photos from our Spanish wedding/honeymoon are up. These are all from our trip to Granada. Granada was an amazing place, if only for Alhambra. Alhambra is the kind of place I’d heard often, “It’s amazing, you’re gonna love it.” Enough people said it that I thought, Well, it’s probably pretty good but I’ve seen a lot of the world in my lifetime so we’ll see. I have to say the Alhambra was a stunning experience for me. Almost every surface is a work of art, and to think that it was a place where people lived, worked, loved and died, living their lives.
If Granada was just the Alhambra it would be worth the visit, but the whole city was amazing, from the steep hill and narrow streets of whitewashed Albaicín to visiting the Catholic Monarchs, Isabella and Ferran (Fernando to you Spanish only folks), to the food and the simultaneously modern and medieval feel. There were a lot of tourists but once you ignored them (and it didn’t take me too long) Granada is a wonderful place to visit.Comments Off | Catergorized: andalucia family food-drink life photos
