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!
