Beautiful Vacation in Spain

We recently returned from a long-awaited journey. We visited Spain! It was our first trip abroad, ever. I've wanted to visit this country since I was a young girl in Spanish class--way back when.  Our trip included staying in five different cities, and we also visited several others for the day.

It was a delight in every way. The country was beautiful, the historical sights were stunning, and the people were friendly and welcoming. 

A snippet of the places we visited:

What a fantastic time it was. Now it's back to reality and responsibilities. Maybe some stitching today will ease me back into the routine?

Thanks for stopping by today!

    What a fabulous experience! Looks like a spectacular trip. I've never been out of the US and hope to travel. Someday. Probably to Japan, though, since I have family there. Fortunately, it's always been at the top of my travel wishlist. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. It inspires me.
