Firstly I went to Italy to see the last 11 days of the Giro d'Italia (Tour of Italy cycle race) which was very exciting and a lot of fun!
Passo dello Stelvio, Italy
Lots of biking up some really big mountains! the Passo dello Stelvio is 2770 m and even though it's really high it is a nice ride up there
Next I went to Spain and spent a week with my friend in Barcelona before heading of to Madrid for the start of my bus tour.
Bull fighting ring in Madrid
The Alhambra (Which I now have a cross stitch pattern from Chatelaine designs to do!)
The Medina (markets) in Morocco
Plaza de Espana, Seville
Overall I have a wonderful trip and I am already planning my next one! When I left Madrid it was 34 degrees, I got home to snow and 0 degrees, needless to say I was not impressed!
As for stitching I haven't done much but I have got a new start to show you
Loire Castle Chenonceau by Chatelaine Designs
Just a small start so far...
