I text pictures to my Daddy and share my feelings with him during the journey. When I text the pictures of castles to him, he asks why most of them are built on the top of the hill. I tell him castles like these can be used for defense. As an officer working for Hydrological Power and Engineering Agency, the first question pops in his head is “how do they drink water”. Talking about this, we have to say ancient people were very intelligent. In La Alhambra, the tour guide tells us the first thing the constructors try to solve is the water problem.

Malaga is not a popular destination for Chinese tourists. I am very interested in Pablo Picasso, who was born and spent his childhood here, so I put this city in my list to visit. The world known Spanish movie star Antonio Banderas, who starred in Interview with the Vampire, Frida, and many other Almodovar’s films, was also born here. I strongly recommend this city, not only for its fame gained from Picasso, but also for the leisure time and beautiful sunshine here.Read more
After sunshine on the beach and paintings in Picasso’s museum, my friends and I go back to Park Güell. Fresh air, scent of flowers, and shades are great for us to refresh ourselves after several hours walk. The tour guide helps a lot to understand Park Güell and Antonio Gaudi. It is a little regret that there is no Chinese guide now. The trip will be easy if some of your traveling buddies understand English or Spanish. All officers will remind visitors that the ticket cannot be used for re-entering, but once you get into the park, you could stay as long as you like before the park is closed, so planning the visiting line is necessary.Read more
Before today’s trip, I joke to my friend that tourism industry in Barcelona is based on Pablo Picasso and Antonio Gaudi. I know it is not fair to comment Barcelona like this because the charming city has so much to explore. What I want express is that how influential these two art masters are for such a magic city.Read more
Nothing can be more excited than you fly to the other end of the earth to experience another style of life. Once you have a chance to be outside your own culture, the world you see and the thing you feel will be totally different. Next 12 days, a trip to Spain is such an opportunity for me to discover something new in an exotic environment, and I would like to share it with you.Read more
