So, you know, I got to thinking about this whole Spanish historical sites blog concept and came to a conclusion: ‘What the hell do you really know about Spain anyway?’ ‘You’ve never been there, you just pore over tons of information, scour Google Earth obsessively (to a point of knowing what the towns look like very well) and read the historical pages.’ Certainly I have read and read, pored and clicked, but what do I really know? Jack shit.
That forced me to reappraise exactly what I wanted my blog to be. I want it to be a guide for how I approach my own visit(s) to Spain in the future. A How-to, a Coast Pilot, a What to Expect When You’re Touring Spain. So, that’s what it will be. A guide for me. If someone else wants to glean info from it, I hope it helps.
As I have said before, I have studied up on Catalunya the most and that is where I intend to go first. I will start there, but I am not sure if I should start my blog alphabetically, or start in a certain section and work my way up and over, or out and down, etc. Just doing Catalunya’s resources should take about a year. There is just so much to do and see. It’s really a beautiful place, and very rich with heritage sites.
I really just can’t wait to go there.
