Spain in Pictures

We spent three weeks exploring Spain, driving from Madrid to Toledo and Granada before heading back up to Valencia and then Barcelona. We didn't have any expectations for Spain, but as it turns out we loved each city more than the one before. Here's what we saw.

Sephardic Judiasm: Going Beyond The Mina

Sephardic Judiasm: Going Beyond The Mina

A Not-So-Boring (hopefully) lesson on Barcelona's Jews 

We were fortunate to have had the opportunity to take an amazing tour through the old and new Jewish quarter of Barcelona with Janet Amateau of the website Sephardic Food. To capture even a portion of everything she shared would never do our talk justice, so instead, here are a few highlights to whet your appetite.

The Works of Antoni Gaudí 

Everywhere you go in Barcelona, There's Gaudí 

Barcelona, Spain is home to only one UNESCO World Heritage site, but it's a big one that encompasses many sites throughout the city—the Works of Antoni Gaudí. We visited just a few of the man's creations, but his influence (not to mention his name) can be seen and felt throughout the entire city.

Wednesday, 08-04-2015 — Friday, 15-04-2015. 

Days 231 — 238. 

After our whirlwind driving tour of Spain, we were happy to settle down in Barcelona for a week, where my mom came to join up on our travels for a few days. We didn't do a lot each day, but over the course of the week we packed in quite a few activities.
