Italy, Spain, Portugal & Morocco!

A long overdue update but I have been away for 5 weeks on my holiday :)

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

 Lisbon, Portugal

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...

Happy stitching!

  1. What an amazing trip and it looks like you had perfect weather. Always so depressing to come back to miserable weather.
