LATEST Hiking the Cares Gorge, A Northern Spain Highlight

Highlight of Northern Spain

I’ve been back for about a week and I still can’t stop blabbing about Los Picos and the Cares Gorge. It’s surprising how little known this national park is in the States, even among my hiker friends.

Mardi Gras World is Both Fun and Amazing

Who makes the floats? Who pays for them? What’s the deal with the masks? Those are the questions I’d never asked myself. Having a big aversion to rowdy and drunken crowd, Mardi Gras is not high on the list of things I’d like to do.
