hi Drema, You made it to Spain! When was this? I hope you didn't miss the interior of Cafe Iruña - Hemmingway's wateringhole - while in the plaza. Theres a full size bronze of him where he habitually propped up the bar.

Hi David, I was in Spain a year ago this month. I was on the plaze at Cafe Iruña but didn't go in. I've never been a big Hemmingway fan, so it wasn't a big priority for me to see the cafe. I did love visiting Spain, though. In what part of Spain do you live?
any of the pics except the Trafalgar square pano!
The Marina Alta is the top end of the old Kingdom of Alacant, now part of the Comunidad Valenciana. aka the Costa Blanca. About 15 minutes from the beach on my scooter.
Well, I certainly loved visiting Valencia, so if your area is as nice, I'm sure I would love it too! I'd love to have the opportunity to travel the rest of the way down the Mediterranean coast. Maybe one of these days!
Do your research carefully before deciding where to go. A lot of the Spanish Mediterranean coast has been wrecked by over-development. Think Miami on the Med! If you liked Valencia you'd love Barcelona. Go well out of season, though. It's very popular.
Came down the coast from Barcelona to Valencia. Didn't like Barcelona as much, it seemed to be more of a party town. Could also be that the weather just wasn't as good when I was there.
