During my vacation with my daughter in Spain we drove from Barcelona to Cadaques, Spain. And what a little adventure that was! For me, there were so many things that were different and outside of my comfort zone, being in another country, a different language (why didn’t I keep up with Spanish that I took in school!), the use of the metric system- I constantly had to keep asking my daughter for the conversion, new foods, new people…. it was all so EXCITING!!! My brain was running in overload trying to take it all in within a weeks time.
Of course, my camera was snapping all the time, even while we were driving, well, she was driving, I was snapping.
The mountains were surprisingly very dry and rocky .
This was our teeny tiny rental car! It was even smaller than the Mini-Cooper I normally drive. I felt like a strong gust of wind was going to blow us off the mountain.
I felt like I was on top of the World. And yes… I’m holding on to the guardrail, we were that high up and the road was so narrow that I was getting dizzy.
We’re almost there! Only 5 kilometers to go. And again, don’t ask me how many miles that really is. I keep asking why the US has not fully converted to the Metric system after all these years. Do you believe that the US and only 2 other countries in the World are not on the Metric system! I really felt stupid not being familiar with the metric system to use on a daily basis.
The view as we approached Cadaques was breathtaking. Just look at the color of the water. I’m hoping I can re-create that in my paintings!
