Linky Parties This post may be linked to some great Linky Parties, always a great source of inspiration too.  If you click through to my 'Fave Linky Parties'  page you can see where I like to share my work.


  1. wonderful pics - makes me want to visit. I have just completed a Paris to Prague trip and found that only in the CR did I have issues being an English only speaker - how was it in Spain?

    1. I had few language problems in Barcelona, many people spoke English and those that didn't really wanted to be helpful and we worked things out together. When I visit Seville, where my son lives, it's a real issue that I don't speak Spanish as they don't/won't speak English with me. I'm always very aware in Spain that I'm incredibly lucky to have my Spanish daughter-in-law and my fluent-Spanish speaking son around to translate :D

  2. I would love to visit Barcelona to see all the Gaudi buildings, which I've seen on tv many times; also the fantastic unfinished Cathedral. Here is a link with a short 3d video of how it will look when completed :)

    1. The video is fabulous Lesley - I see it was created in 2013 and some sections shown are already finished and I very much hope that I'll still be around to visit again once the work is fully completed and it's made me a bit tearful thinking of my Grandson being there again when he is much older :D Thanks so much for sharing and do what you can to get there - Barcelona tops my list now of European places I've visited, we had a wonderful time there. :D


I love to hear from everyone, thank you for taking the time to read my blog and share your thoughts. Please leave a message to let me know you visited, it's a great way to get to know you all better too :)
