Honeymoon adventures in Espana

This is a primarily picture post about my adventure in Spain with my husband. We've sent out all of the pictures to friends and family at the wedding but wanted to share some adventure stories here too. Hopefully Mike will write a guest post (my first one!) about our adventures.

Here's a rough outline of our itinerary on a map: 
*Start in Barcelona, Figueres, Cadaques, Espot (in the Pyrenees), San Sabastian, Bilbao, Sevilla, Ronda, Granada Cordoba*

 This is Day 1: We're looking a little exhausted in Park Guell in Barcelona - fresh off the plane and already on adventures.
 Gaudi had an amazing way of manipulating materials to create natural images.

 La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

 Hiking at Montserrat, a few hours away from Barcelona. 
 It was a long way up and we're sweaty!

 We noticed that Spanish provinces view themselves as autonomous - not really a unified Spain

 The Dali Museum in Figueres - one of our favorite places we saw and one of the very few museums we went to. 
 Mas Pau - a beautiful hotel outside of Figueres and our 2nd favorite hotel of the trip. 

 Cadaques, where Dali spent his formative years. Right on the Mediterranean. 

 One of the BAGILLION roundabouts we encountered

Many more photos after the jump...

 Hiking in the Pyrenees

 Other side of the Atlantic at San Sabastian (regionally known as Donostia); referred to as "mecca" for Spanish food.
 It was bright outside

 The Guggenheim in Bilbao 

 Gorge in Ronda - outside of Sevilla

 Early EARLY morning at Alhambra in Granada

The Dali museum is really awesome -- as is Barcelona and that region of Spain. Glad to see you had a great time!

Thanks G! We definitely liked the North the best - Barcelona/Figueres/The was a beautiful area. And when we drove through France I thought of you!
