For April I'd like to hear travel stories. Interesting people, places, foods, history, travel experiences. Might be in your town, might be across the globe. Pictures get you extra points.

I'll have Kim judge the entries as it looks like she won't be traveling for a while. Cool

All good travel stories start with either "no sh*t, there we were..." or "it was a dark and stormy night".

I'm in on this one. I may have to alter several names and places to protect the guilty, however.

I hope so. Let’s plan for a lot of stories here.

And pictures. I love pictures.

It’s the picture search that slows me down!

I bow out from the competition as I have recently won, but this experience the high point of my trip with my Ex sister in law in Spain two years ago. We were just browsing in a small leather shop on the main street in Madrid when a parade broke out..People in folk costumes and wooden shoes with music walked down the street...All of us in the shop, staff and customers went to the doors...the parade expanded..to SHEEP!

Turns out it is a tradition..In the old days, sheep were herded from the north to the south on this route..it has remained as a day of local tradition..ONE day..THE day we happened to be there at the right place, right time..amazing.

Let me know if the link doesn't work.

And if you do not believe me..
