My third and last big trip of 2013 was a two-week trip to Spain, Morocco and Gibraltar.
I take bird (and other wildlife) pictures. One thing I’ve learned is that to get new birds, it is best to travel to new locations — there, even the most common, even “nuisance” birds are new. Although this trip was not a “birding trip”, and in fact I did not even bring my big lens, I managed to get a few good pictures of new birds.
But wildlife watching was not our only occupation on this trip. We immersed ourselves in the culture of Spain, Britain and Morocco. The following are some scenic and street pictures on this trip.
And on this trip, I set my foot on Africa for the first time — I took a day trip to Tangier, Morocco.
So, yes, I am still firmly a “traveler at home”, but I certainly do not mind going to a few far flung places once in a while.
