Come along with me........

A couple of weeks ago I flew across the big pond with my hubby. I have never been out of the country before so this was a very new experience.

Leaving my home turf............

We actually felt like we took another flight in our taxi ride from the airport to the hotel...........

We saw some amazing places............

and people everywhere.................

Incredible sights.........................

and buildings that have been standing, untouched, since the 1400's.

hummmm....... let's see. Christopher Columbus was probably not even born when these buildings were built!

Pretty hard to fathom.

Loved all the outdoor cafes..............

Thanks for coming along with me.

It's always so good to come back home :-)

Have a great weekend!

Looks like a neat place to visit but you didn't say where it is... Spain maybe? I'm guessing because of your reference to Christopher Columbus. I love old buildings.
