From Madrid to Granada, Barcelona to Seville, Spain offers a special kind of rejuvenation. The soul becomes imbued with a certain freedom of spirt here, that inspires joy and the allowance to simply revel in life. Maybe it's the charging of the body by the endless sun; or the filling of the stomach with tapas and sangria; or the swelling of the heart that occurs while watching truly excellent flamenco. Whatever Spain's secret is, there is nowhere else on earth where a simple passion for life flows as easily through a human being's veins. There is value in taking time, and nowhere have I heeded that lesson as fervently as here.
