Adventure In Spain

Recently a co-worker (Marquis) and myself were asked by the Spanish Department of Tourism and the Andelusian Region for an International meeting for Inland Tourism. First off, let me say it was a working visit but we were shown an area of Spain that sadly is overlooked by many and it’s now my goal to change that. Let me tell you a bit about my trip.

We departed Houston on Wednesday. We were flying Delta so had a 1 hour layover in Atlanta. We actually had a very nice flight to Madrid. We spent some time reviewing our itenerary (busy), the area we were going to (neither of us knew a lot), and what we were planning on trying to learn or accomplish (a list a mile long). For the first time in my life I had an enjoyable meal aboard a flight. The attendants were funny, the seats I actually slept in, and wonders upon wonders did not feel like I had been drugged through the ringer when we landed. We were met by Juan at the airport and he drove us the 4 hours south to Jaén, a city in south-central Spain. Below is a You Tube video of the area and with photos of our trip. Take a peek. I think you will find it beautiful.
