Spain and Portugal

The Iberian Peninsula is like a shot of espresso to me–so much to offer for its relatively small size. Visit a room in my personal heaven, when you pair world-class regional wine with tapas or paella or ANYTHING in these culinary meccas. Or maybe art and architecture are your thing–Goya, Velaquez, Picasso, Dali, Gaudi–palaces, castles, cathedrals and museums housing art from the past thousand years. Or immerse yourself in the region’s rich history, which can’t be separated from the influences of various religions–Islam, Judaism, Protestantism and Catholicism.


Fjords, waterfalls, glaciers; dramatic vistas from the top of mountains and/or from the deck of a boat–bring at least TWO camera batteries!
