Itchy feet: 3


I traveled to Spain one spring when i was seventeen and immediately fell in love, with the architecture, the gardens, the atmosphere, and especially the people.  I absolutely have to go again!
A favorite part of the trip was visiting some of the most beautiful gardens in the world, unfortunately this was the time of film and I've lost several rolls of film from that trip.  Unbelievable!
So i want to thank all the photographers who take pics of these beautiful gardens, and let me share them with you here.  Enjoy!

Real Alcazar Gardens

Alhambra Palace

Spain is by far the most beautiful place i have ever been to, as well as one of the friendliest.  My spanish is rudimentary, but the people in Spain are so friendly and helpful (just beware the ones that seem too helpful, or the ones carrying maps over their arms on the metros, i nearly had my pocket picked, or the Gypsy's handing out springs of rosemary - they present it to you like a gift, but once you take it they demand a very large payment in return and you can't get them to take it back if you don't pay, you just have to pay). 
But don't let any of that put you off,
these occurrences are rare and the people of Spain are simply amazing,
 it is just important to exercise caution where ever you go.
Spain is a place not to be missed by any traveller.
And in my completely biased opinion, Barcelona is the greatest city in the world.
