Spain 2011

Two weeks of touring Spain's wonderful countryside, from top to bottom and bottom to top! A trip masterminded by a great friend and thoroughly enjoyed together with him and our dear wives. We saw some spectacular scenery, stayed in some magnificent hotels, and shot some amazing architecture!

For those who may be interested, we travelled from Plymouth to Santander, then on to Burgos, Avila, Merida, Calahonda, Cordoba and Chinchon, before sailing home from Bilbao to Portsmouth. This gallery will hopefully give you a glimpse of the delights we shared on our travels.

I hope you enjoy the journey!
