Tourism in Spain is popular and quite delightful ~ An article By The Honorable David E. Cain

With mountains and seashores and two of the leading city destinations in Europe, Spain has become a world leader in tourism.   The reasons to go are almost without limit:  History, art, culture, scenery, architectural delights, diverse landscape and entertainment, to name a few.  And that’s just from seeing a small part of it.  Spain is second only to Switzerland as the most mountainous county in Europe and has famous ski resorts all over.  The endless sandy beaches along both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic make ocean resorts popular as well. About ten years ago, Spain became the second most visited country in the world.  France was first.  Now, it also trails the United States and China.  Tourism contributes about 6.5 percent of its GDP, with Madrid and Barcelona leading the way.   My wife, Mary Ann, and I went to Spain with a group:  The Chancel Choir of St. Luke’s United.

Friday, May 17, 2013 Fond memories, and joyful homecoming Everyone, both Concert Tour participants and those who extended their Italian stay by several more days, are home safe and sound! Thanks to everyone who followed the posts from our traveling bloggers. We experienced some challenges trying to post while on the road, but hopefully by the pictures that are now circulating on Facebook and the stories being told (MOST of them being true!), we can share the joy which abides for us from this little adventure! Che Dio ti benedica! Posted by Mark Squire at 7:15 AM   The Amalfi Coast Beckons On May 9th, we left the island of Capri on a boat headed for Positano and all the joys and delights of the Amalfi Coast. The rocky and rugged coastline views on our journey were spectacular! Positano is a splendid cliffside retreat. It was quite a walk up.

A passion for traveling….

Is this Paradise? Well it’s Chico’s Paradise in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A must hit every time I travel to Puerto Vallarta. With a beautiful restaurant and bar overlooking monstrous boulders, this is idyllic in its’ beauty. A brave soul catapults himself off the top of a large rock landing in a small pool between dangerous boulders at the base of the falls in a diving show periodically throughout the day. Dinner, wine, a view and entertainment, what more can one ask for. Traveling and seeing the world is a passion of mine. In the last 12 months, I have been to Italy twice, France, Florida, Mexico, California, Spain and many other little trips in between. Finding the special local flavor is also part of the experience. Come travel with me and see what our world has to offer. Check back often for upcoming trips, pictures from past trips and tips about.
