...because of Córdoba and its magnificent Mezquita...









...5 hours south by AVE fast train (which I am also besotted by), is Córdoba and its magnificent Mezquita. From a Moorish Mosque to a Catholic Cathedral- this is where two cultures collided. Where Moorish arches meet soaring Gothic cupolas.  It is the history of the city in one grand building.  It is spectacular.

...because of a kayaking on the Costa Brava....



















For a sporting and spectacular adventure, we went to Platja Es Castells on the Costa Brava for an afternoon of kayaking along the coast north up to Cap Roig.  Our guide told us the history of all the little calas (coves) along the way. It was interesting, fascinating and fun... and at time a little adventurous when we had to navigate through the rocks and the waves.

..because of the super festive, Fiesta de Gracia...


















 


... the Fiesta de Gracia - every August, the neighbourhood of Gracia holds its own Festival.  The residents decorate the streets and the plazas with colourful and original designs.  Every night is a party with bars and bands in the streets and it is easy to lose yourself (and your way) exploring the fun and festivaties that are on offer! It is a wonderful and colourful tradition and worth a visit.

...because I am back at my favourite roof terrace...















...Grand Hotel Central.  Undoubtedly my favourite pool deck in Barcelona.  Open from 20.30h to the public, but best enjoyed if you have friends staying there!
