I'm about >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>this<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< jealous!!
It was equal parts hell and heaven. I did get to see Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, but had almost no time to myself (disclaimer: much of that time was spent drinking Spanish wine and eating Serrano ham).
Bring me back a donkey
??? That would REALLY get my Global Entry status revoked, haha!
Yep, Happy journey, Bill. I imagine my pal is having a blast at AMPS. One of these days, I will attend.
AMPS was fun and I won two bronzes. Considering how little time I had to prep, I'm surprised I won anything at all.
Que vaya con Dios, and all the tortilla & paella you can consume!
No tortilla and my companions don't like paella but plenty of eggs over spuds with ham shavings and Barcelona's Estrella Damm beer is damn fine beer.
And a windmill.
Safe travels. Enjoy the wine and food.
The wine & food are superb, though the Spanish aren't much on veggies (unless covering in ham shavings).
Hey Bill! Where you gonna be? I'm on the ferry to Santander on Tuesday/Wednesday, then heading west to Santiago d C over the next couple of days, then who knows where!? If our paths crossed it would be a shame not to share a couple of cervesas!!!
I was in Madrid during the Barcelona-Real Madrid game (tix were $600 each, so I didn't go), then in Getafe (an industrial area SW of Madrid), then Barcelona (wonderful), Toledo (wonderful) and back to Madrid. It was wall-to-wall work, but I had fun with my travel companions and might actually come out of it with some money.
Agreed. Safe travels. Spain will never be the same.
That's for sure, the Spanish don't know WHAT to make of me.
Enjoy! Where in Spain will you be?
Madrid (too much), Barcelona (too little), and Toledo (just right).
Work or pleasure..........if it's work make use of the expense account............
Work. Yes, the client paid, but it was still a week of work in the office lost that may not generate more than a few thousand for my company. It's a crap shoot at this point.
Researching a Running with the Bulls diorama? Safe travels!
Haha, no, didn't get to Pamplona and Barcelona has outlawed bull fighting as cruelty to animals. Mostly a lot of throwing of the bull in sales meetings and contract negotiations.
