Waaaaay back in February, we traveled around Spain before the terms Covid or social distancing were in our everyday vocabulary. For part of our travels, we were with dear friends who were passing through Spain on their way back to Uganda, where they live.
For reasons due to a broken computer, Covid anxiety and busy-ness with life in general, this post is quite delayed. But the pictures are worth sharing and it is fun for me to relive my Spain experiences in looking at them. I hope you enjoy the photos. At the bottom, I will link to a couple of Spanish recipes that I am eager to try, as well as provide tips for what to pack for a picnic.Jump to Recipe
|We were the American tourists who played tag with our kids in Plaza Mayor|
|The door to the building in which we stayed was absolutely beautiful! I love the architecture in Madrid.|
|A boat ride on the lake in the big park called El Retiro|
|And, of course, a picnic in our boats.|
Three Picnic Menus

- Menu Two: Green salad, tuna salad, fruit, basil lemonade.
- Menu Three: BLT lettuce wraps, soft-boiled eggs, einkorn chocolate chip cookies, iced tea.
|Toledo. It was a magical mix of castles, nature, hills, and water.|
|Playing around at a sword shop. We got to see them making the swords.|
|It was fun to walk the old alleys.|
|Such good friends. We had a wonderful time.|
|Leaving Toledo. Can you believe cars fit through these alleys? We just press ourselves against the walls and hope our toes are out of the way.|
