Our supporters won’t be surprised to hear that Travel Talks events are cancelled until further notice. We will update as soon as things change.
With very best wishes from all at Travel Talks.
Here are five wonderful photographs from Ralph Dransfield’s presentation “The “Colours of Spain”. The slides were to have been shown on Friday 20 March just three days after we had to cancel our meetings due to the curfew.
The chimneys of Antonio Gaudi’s block of flats “Casa Batllo” on Passeig de Gracia in the Eixample district of Barcelona, finished in 1905. Fantastic organic shapes covered with shards of glazed tile which shimmer in the sunlight.
Antonio Gaudi’s famous and extraordinary “Sagrada Familia” – a shot looking up into the nave vaulting.
One of the many colourful markets in Madrid – could also be in Barcelona or any other town – they have an ability to display fruit and veg in a very colourful way!
A photo of the interior of the “Duck Store” – a shop in Barcelona which seemed to have nothing other than plastic ducks – bathtime must be very special!!
(By way of complete contrast) a view in the Picos de Europa mountain ranges in the NE part of Spain – a wonderful area for walking with some stunning scenery. We visited with my botanist brother and wife, looking for autumn flowers in the mountains.
