My wife, daughter & I left for a vacation in Spain the day after work & school finished. Our preparation consisted of booking flights, hotels and rent-a-cars. Standard stuff for the seasoned traveler.
-4-A Guided Tour of the Museo del Prado in Madrid: our knowledgeable art tour director Maria ran us thru 90 minutes with Goya, Velazquez, El Greco and other European Masters. She made it understandable and fun for our 9 year old daughter while directing us thru a maze of hallways. After this education we walked 20 minutes to the “Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia to see Pablo Picasso’s Master Piece; Guernica, 1937.
-5-Running along the Beach as the first Sun Rise of 2012 brightens the Mediterranean. Joggers starting the first morning early are in good company as many people enjoyed finishing their New Year’s Celebration by the Sea Side. Barcelona is an exciting city by night and the Skyline is beautiful in the morning.
