Well I never been to Spain
But I kinda like the music
Say the ladies are insane there
And they sure know how to use it
They don’t abuse it
Never gonna lose it
I can’t refuse it
– Three Dog Night
In all my travels and visits to Europe since my first trip 30 years ago I somehow have never been to Spain.
Until today. Hello you beautiful old girl. It’s very nice to meet you. Hola hermosa, buena apariencia!
Unfortunately it’s raining. So clearly the rain in Spain does not stay mainly on the plain.
I hadn’t officially been adding up the country totals, even though I get asked the question often. I know where I haven’t been – and Spain eluded me.
But a couple of weeks ago I read an article about Anthony Bourdain that said he had been to 80 countries. Well I’ve mentioned before that I am a big fan of Mr. Bourdain so it really made me want to know how many countries I have BEEN to.
So I now have a new App appropriately called BEEN. I can add any country in the world and it keeps track of the percentage of the world I have seen.
So guess what Mr. Bourdain I’m on your tail buddy! Watch out!
With the addition of Spain in my BEEN list I have been in 64 countries. I think I can get to 80 before we head back to the USA for a visit next May.
Of course it is not a contest – especially since we are looking at travel as a way of life and not a vacation. But heck yeah, it’s fun to have something in common with my man TONY! Who knows, maybe I’ll run into him one of these days in who knows where?
And I will ask him “Have you been to Spain? In the rain?”
La vida es buena!
