Spain…On The Road Again

The 4-DVD set of Spain…On The Road Again is incredible. It has Gwenth Paltrow, celebrity chef Mario Batali, food critic Mark Bittman of the NY Times, and the beautiful Spanish actress Claudia Bassols taking an incredible road trip across Spain. They see many beautiful places and learn how to make some great Spanish dishes.

If you like eating or cooking food you will certainly enjoy this show. If you have ever been enchanted with Spain or Don Quixote, Sancho Panza and La Mancha it will only make it better. And if you enjoy practicing your skill with the Spanish language it gets even better.

By far the most widely used language on the planet is Mandarin Chinese. Number two is the English language, and the third most widely spoken language is Spanish. I deal quite well with numbers 2 and 3, so travelling in Spain is a real pleasure for me.

A few years ago I drove over big parts of Spain with a beautiful young lady accompanying me. We spent some time in Madrid, La Mancha and Extremadura. Then about a year after that I got to spend some wonderful time in Barcelona, which is in Catalonia. Spain is such a wonderful place that I just can’t say enough good things about it.

This program and the DVD set of it is amazing.
