See what Sue says

  • A circular tour of Spain crossing the border from Bordeaux. The rain in Spain does seem to fall mainly in the plain. Most of our journey is at elevation, and arid. and we have searing sun driving through the peninsula in August.
  • Madrid – quiet- I expect everyone’s on holiday. Hieronymus Bosch is the stand out at at the Prado.
  • Toledo – quaint houses, a cathedral, El Greco and sunstroke
  • Seville- cobbled streets, carriages and palm trees. Don is in a hurry and cross because we’d got lost.
  • Granada – cathedrals, Moorish architecture, Ferdinand and Isabella’s tombs and troglodytes. And the song that keeps running through my head….
  • Up the coastal road to the Costa Dorada, and then through to Andorra. Don is still speeding along. ……….
