Do you see the where it says "My Stuff" at the top of the page? there should be a little flashing envelope. If you click on it, you can open it. Try again and let me know!

Traveler 024,

You are most definitely not alone in your feelings. Many of us on the board feel exactly the same love for Spain, the Spanish people, the culture, the history, the lifestyle, the food and wine … I could keep adding things but you get the idea.

The first time I was ever in Spain (Madrid originally then all over the country) I had taken off after freshman year in college and wandered around Europe - I fell instantly in love with Spain and that has never changed. After college I lived in Australia, the Honolulu, then San Francisco, then Boston, now Charlotte … and I’ve traveled to innumerable other countries over the years. But my love for Spain has never ever changed except to get stronger and more visceral.

Years later I think I might have figured out part of the reason – my mother, whom I never really knew until I was well into my adult-hood, had been born in France but baptized in Spain where she lived until perhaps age 5. Her Godfather was the then King of Spain. My Mother and I are almost exact physical clones of each other: we move identically, we are both writers, etc. Her other kids tell me it is eerie in the likenesses …

Without commenting on the reasons for this, suffice it to say in my heart has always been in Spain – that I feel Spain is my home, & the tears I shed every time I land in Madrid only increase with each return.

Addendum to the above - my Mother's baptismal name was Victoria Eugenia Felecia Angoosta Christabl(e???) Tita - then last name. That mouthful was the curent King of Spains Grandfather's doing!

I love Spain ... but when I go back to London and take a black cab ( taxi ) through the streets I cry too . Home is where your heart is .

If someone has an American passport, are they allowed to have more than one?
