Zaragoza!

I have never met a Spanish city I haven't liked, and Zaragoza is high among them. It is so beautiful, and jam packed with things to do (we could have stayed another week and not even scratched the surface). But it also feels wonderfully small, intimate almost. Its busy commercial streets are criss-crossed by small, pedestrian alleys that are lined with tapas bars. Around every corner is a restaurant with outdoor seating, a little garden, or a piece of public art (Spain does public art right). And, much like Malta, when you start peeling back the layers of its history, you can't help but fall a little more in love with this city.

Over the next few days we'll be sharing what we saw, did, and ate in Zaragoza - all in a span of only 15 hours!
