in Spain, Trips & Travels

Quixote's WindmillQuixote's WindmillYou may have noticed that it’s been quiet over here this last week and a half; we were traveling through the south of Spain and I planned to post while we were away but well… sometimes all it takes is sitting on a bed to realize there’s nothing else you want more than to be under the covers and asleep in a matter of three seconds! Anyways, I didn’t think it was possible but I love Spain even MORE now! On our first day of traveling, we stopped at the windmills that inspired one of Don Quixote’s adventures. It was beautiful as we were driving up but the second we got there, the clouds gathered and It. Was. Freeeeezing. I’m not joking. But come to think of it, I think I look particularly fetching nestled in my coat like a turtle with a tomato red nose and fogged up glasses!;) As attractive as I may have been, I don’t believe I’d like to experience that kind of weather on a daily basis.Um... too cold.Um... too cold.Um... too cold.And of course!! Don Quixote himself, off on his many strange adventures!Don QuixoteWe stayed our first night in Ubeda and I swear there were cathedrals on every corner!! Just down the street from us was the most exquisite pottery boutique owned by a renowned Spanish ceramic artist, you can read about it in my mother’s post.

On the right in the image below is where we stayed and on the left is a building that was constructed even before the Romans arrived!! I love how in Spain you can have a building only a few decades old next to one a few centuries old more (if not more!.Ubeda, SpainUbeda, SpainUbeda, SpainUbeda, SpainUbeda, Spain  Spain, you beautiful, beautiful country, oh how I adore you!
