In late October, we again returned to the continents of Europe and Africa. We had only seen a glimpse of the Iberian Peninsula (several days in Barcelona earlier in the year), so we decided to explore both Portugal and Spain. Then, on this our third visit to Africa, we went to the northern country of Morocco. We also spent a day in the English bastion of Gibraltar in transit between Morocco and Spain. In summary, another great trip! The Iberian Peninsula offers wonderful museums, architecture, shopping, food and, of course, fine wines and ports. Morocco gave us a glance into a very distinct Arabian culture that also offered great shopping and dining in a very unique setting.
