The Old Town of Tossa de Mar is simply breathtaking. Walking along the narrow streets is some of my fondest memories of Spain. This is one of the views from the many stairways that dot the village. Simply unforgettable!

Catalonia, Spain
Hiking in the Pyrenees of Spain, we came across a small town, quite proud of its Catalonian heritage. Flags were flying and music was in the air as a sunny September day was in full swing!
