It was one of my favorite songs as a teenager, Three Dog Night’s “Never Been to Spain“.
Well I never been to Spain
But I kinda like the music
Say the ladies are insane there
And they sure know how to use it
They don’t abuse it
Never gonna lose it
I can’t refuse it
Well I never been to England
But I kinda like the Beatles
Well, I headed for Las Vegas
Only made it out to Needles
Can you feel it
It must be real it
Feels so good
Oh, feels so good
Our never-to-be-forgotten 10-week adventure in London ended today, and we are now in a beautiful AirBnb in Barcelona.
If our first day In Spain is any indication, we are going to love it here as well.
The temperature hit a high of 67 degrees today, and even later in the evening it was still in the 60s. We passed a lot of people dining out on the sidewalks; after walking a few blocks we decided to get some dinner of our own.
I made it about as Spanish a meal as you can; a glass of Sangria and some vegetable paella.
It was muy bueno.
We are looking forward to a few days exploring Barcelona before heading back home.
And if reading this post reminded you of Three Dog Night, or Never Been to Spain, here are a few videos for you to enjoy.
and here are a couple of other versions of the song I was unaware of:
one by Elvis:
and one by Waylon:
