I admit, I had to look up what pinxtos meant. :) That is quite a complement to say that this town was your favorite. Happy travels home.

San Sebastian
Spain offers many tasty treats. We loved the water, the foods, the people, and the architecture. Known for having more Michelin rated restaurants than any town in Europe... per capita.

San Sabastian looks great
And your blog made me hungry. Coincidentally I'm making Fabada for our evening meal, it's a Spanish dish. You posted a picture of 'Muga' wine. I've not seen that in the UK for years. There was (for some weird reason) a little bodega in our small northern town which only sold Rioja's and that was one of them. It shut 20 years ago, alas.

San Sebastian looks great
Our blog made us hungry also. LOL. We shared with the locals that we had limited choices of Spanish wines in the states. They said most of the vineyards are small batch. They hinted lesser wines get sent to the U.S. ...... figures.

Lisbon
Lisbon looks like a delightful city, and what a wonderful time it seems you had. The food looks amazing, and I imagine a cookery class is a perfect way to experience a local cuisine and culture. It's almost like I've re-lived your day in Lisbon, as I've also read Brendan's entry on the day. A doubly amazing day for you all! 😊

Lisbon
Lisbon is a city you could easily spend a week or more exploring. It was a great way to start our time in Portugal.

Castelo Rodrigo
Great pic that takes me there and beyond. Sort of pic that deserves a place in your room for special things...in Oz its called "the pool room"!

What a great city
I am so happy that you enjoyed the Gaudi touch of Barcelona. Your pictures are great, and when your wrote that you made the best paella, I had to chuckle. I would love to have tasted it. So glad that you were able to take another cooking class.

What a great city
Gaudi is a master and he uses Barcelona as his showcase of beauty. Many in our class thought ours was the best. I wish you had been there! Miss you my friend.

Gaudi Rocks!
I've always enjoyed Barcelona and yes, Gaudi rocks! You "feel" him all over the lovely city, along with Mirô and Dalî. I have friends headed there now to utilise our Emirates voucher for a 2020 botched trip to Barcelona. A pity I couldn't join them. In my last visit, I discovered some spots under the tourist radar and wish to revisit. Glad you guys had a marvellous time!

You are right. You do feel him in the city as well as other architects. I wish you could join your fiends. Thanks for commenting.

Good times are back
It was a marvelous birthday. We had a lot of fun in the class. We hope to replicate our efforts in December. We should have time to play around with it. The tiles and colors are rich and mesmerizing.

Barcelona
Gaudi architecture is amazing. When we went to Montserrat our guide miscounted, and we got left behind! He only realised when they got down that windy road to the bottom of the hill, and they had to come all the way back up again to get us. Memories!!

Gaudi is amazing. Wow... they left you behind. I'm glad they realized and came back for you! I hope they felt bad about that.
