World traveler wannabe Susan here, reporting in. Last month I spent seventeen days in Spain. I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite snapshots.
It's hard to choose a favorite place when everything is so amazing, but Ronda was probably mine. This town (below) was awesome in the literal sense of the word. Perched on sheer cliffs of white stone, it overlooks miles of farmland with mountains framing the horizon.
This house that sat above the stream in Granada just knocked my socks off. I think it's my very favorite snapshot, too--and that's saying something, considering I took 337 photos, of which I developed 244 and ended up using maybe 210 for my album, along with bits and pieces of another dozen. The house was just so ancient and interesting and I had to wonder about those underground windows. Is that a big cellar or what?
This is a shot into the harem's courtyard at the Alhambra, also in Granada. What a fascinating place! The soul mate and I took around 45 pictures here alone. The Alhambra has such history and is filled with fabulous Moorish mosaics and lacy plaster work and it slays me what fabulous condition most of it is in considering this was a fortified city that was built in the Dark Ages.
