fuenterrabía









This is one of my favorite towns in Guipuzcoa (a Spanish provence). It has some of the best food, lovely people, charming shops, history, and.... views of France;) Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

¡Dos besos!

What a beautiful area! It is reminiscent of so many fishing villages. Here in Newfoundland there are many beautiful areas such as this...No France views though! I hope to get out and photograph them over the summer months.

Oh, one of my favorite Spanish cities of all time! I was there for close to 3 weeks a few years back and loved every second of it! I'll never forget those vibrant colors and sweeping mountains. Just gorgeous!

Your picture, amazing as they always are!
I love the Basque Country,looks like a little different place inside Spain and its architecture is simply perfect. It reminds me of my dreams of simplicity and love with family.
Big hugs and kisses Jane :)
