Cuevas del Drach

We flew from Victoria, where we were living at the time, to Majorca and stayed at a funky old hotel near Palma for a week.  We spent the time driving around the Island seeing tourist sites like the Cuevas del Drach, a monstrously large cave that has a fleet of boats used for tours in an underground lake.  I played golf with a German doctor who recommended that we see the Abaco bar in Palma.  When you open the door and go in, you are transported to an ultra theatrical Majorcan home in the 1600's.  It's a must see if you're ever in Palma.

MorellaWe flew to Valencia and rented a car for our driving trip up the Spanish coast through Tarragona to Barcelona.

The high points for me were the hill fortress at Morella, the lunch at a little Spanish town where they measured the wine with fingers, the Roman aqueduct and Roman Circus restaurant in Tarragona, and Goudi's Catheral in Barcelona.
