I was thinking about all the invaluable bits of info I've gathered over the past 15 years or so as a follower of MadridMan and it made me curious. What was the very best thing - be it a place to visit; to stay; to eat; to experience, to buy, etc. that you learned or discovered?

wow congrats!on the 16 yrs here. I have quite less but enjoy the site as well. I cannot think of one moment , to me is to be able to share the love of Spain and its tradition with like minded persons.

Especially ,when I see most are not even Spanish yet the love and appreciation is as much as I or more.

Thanks for sharing Spain.

It's really great when you can get good recommendations of places to stay and even sometimes directions. I remember we traveled by bus to Granada and the directions of where and how to catch the city bus to the center were greatly appreciated.

Would love to return to Granada sometime and spend several days there, a couple to again tour the Alhambra and then to just relax in the laid back atmosphere.

The first time I went to Madrid to watch the Madrid Masters tennis tournament, I got great advice about getting to the city centre from the airport. The information on hostels was useful too,

It was important to me to know about the closing of Petra's International book store. It was a first day stop for me. I was glad that others cared about tiny bookstores. On a more positive note I think the best thing about this is MM himself, his comments, his story, his blog ,his passion about Spain which I share. I am now following MM on twitter also. My twitter handle is #patg85. Maybe some of us can connect there .

I agree with Pedmar; let's keep MM alive. Surely we all know people who are traveling to Spain for the first time or after many years. Referring them to MadridMan as a brilliant resource is the least we can do to says gracias and aloha for the years and years MM has given to building and maintaining the site. Spain - and Madrid in particular - is his passion and ours.

I didn't mean to switch to twitter instead of this forum. I will be posting here, especially since we are all trying to jump start this wonderful resource. I hope to meet some of you down the road sometime. So if any body is coming to Houston, Tx. I would like to meet with you and show off my extensive library of books about Spain.

Chivasusa, I admire your use of Twitter. It drives me nuts but it is super easy and gaining more and more followers every day.
