The best aspect of our trip this year was an opportunity to spend almost three weeks with one of our children. Back in 2007 we enjoyed our time in Rome and Paris with Steve and Brad, our two sons. In 2010 we spent a week in Texas with our oldest child, Kelly, and her son, Liam. We hope we can continue to travel with our children.

The Costa del Sol exceeded my expectations. Nerja was an excellent choice for a base, Casa Charlotte was very good rental apartment and Frans, our host, provided some excellent suggestions.

Paris is my favourite city in the world. We enjoyed the opportunity to visit some new areas of the city. Like Nerja, a major asset of our time in Paris was our choice of apartments and our host. Pascal was great and his apartment was an excellent choice.

But, both Liz and I are pretty sure we will plan a return visit to Barcelona in the next few years. We were very impressed with the city and our time was way too short. We will plan a longer stay and include day trips to some of the recommended sites in the region.

Looking forward to our next trip, somewhere in Europe in 2012. Time to start planning.
