Lisbon & Sintra- Portugal



Portugal looks very similar to San Francisco-hills, cable car and the bridge but how people live totally difference. A lot of museum and Gothic Cathedral. A dozens of restaurants and bars line the narrow streets where people have a coffee time in the afternoon because of hot weather and nice sitting area in the night time for dinner as well. Sintra is a small town far from Lisbon just 30 minute by train where you can see fabulous Pena Palace and the town is a 19th century romantic architecture.

Madrid &Toledo -Spain



Madrid is my favor for this trip in Spain because of variety of food and everything are interesting close to each other , so I was able to see thing by just walking around the city. Another place you should visit when you go to Madrid is Toledo where you can see the phenomenal view of the city which is not too far one hour drive from Madrid.

Granada-Spain



Granada is a little town one hour fight from Barcelona. The best Flamenco Show ever if you want to feel Flamenco in the real way- I would recommence to the Zambra. La Alhambra also is the fantastic place that you shouldn't miss when you come to Granada.If you are the type of person who don't like crowed people and want to come to Spain, Granada would be the first choice for you.

Barcelona-Spain



Spain is land for of the art. The building are interesting and a lot of thing to see - esp Gaudi Architecture. When I was there, the weather is perfect not too hot but it was too many people even though the summer almost over. It is unusual for me to have dinner late but for this city I have too because people start go out after 8 pm.

Food in Spain and Portugal

Posted by Picasa
Getting around from Spain to Portugal from this trip found a lot of good food and dessert. Of course from Spain where is famous about tapas!!!! especially in Barcelona -the fusion of bar and snacking is the best way to experience a wide range of Spain's traditional food at one time. Granada served the best paella and are the best accompanied with wine. The best for this trip I will give to the tortilla espanola ( Spanish potato omelet) and a couple slice with ham form the market where I can try all the food around in one place. Down to Portugal where you can find the best seafood and pan rice with any kind of seafood was very interesting taste. Trying difference of food on the trip is my favor things and I belive you feel the same way!!!
