Hola Spain...





Well it's au revoir Paris and hola Spain! I've been inspired by Spanish colour, design and architecture for many years now - particularly the Moorish kind that you find in southern Spain. And so, I was over the moon to make it there on this trip. Even more special was to be there with my mum - who shares by love of the aesthetic. Neither of us had visited before and so every day was a special treat filled with new discoveries. We started our journey in Madrid, then made our way to Seville by train. Oh what a beautiful city is Seville - it's windy cobbled alleys, colourful streetscapes and beautiful gardens were just a feast for the eye - and the heart and soul. Mum loved it so much - she even wept with joy! We spent our days exploring the town and the nights eating great food and watching flamenco. Ah, Seville - you are a magical town....

I've never been to Spain but can imagine the colour, the beat of it will uplift your spirit and creativity. How wonderful to enjoy such richness with your Mum!

Sounds amazing and I am jealous! You must rent/buy the Spain, On the Road Again DVD series with Gwyneth Paltro, Mario Batali, Mark Bittman and gorgeous Spaniar Claudia Bassoul. It is amazing and will make you want to move to Spain today!

Ah, beautiful Spain. Your post is bringing back nice memories of a similar trip I took with with my mom through Madrid and Seville about 10 years ago. I am a city girl at heart but, oh do enjoy the slower pace of life and eccentricities that a smaller city like Seville offers.
