I spent last week visiting the national parks of Maine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been to Maine before, but I didn’t spend that much time there. I drove through the state several years ago on my way to Newfoundland. This time I was able to properly explore the state and visit several of the sites which I had been wanting to see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The big star of Maine has to be Acadia National Park. It is the only national park in the Northeast part of the United States. It is well known for its rugged coastal photos. What I didn’t know about the park until last week was how much of of the park was surrounded by towns and houses. I didn’t realize just how connected Bar Harbor was to the park. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In addition to Acadia, I also visited the newly created Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. It was a totally different experience than Acadia, as it really is up in the wilderness of the northern woods. I saw an estimate that only about 10 cars enter the park each day, as opposed to the many thousands which are in Acadia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m making progress on my National Park quest. I now been to 54/61 of the national parks proper, and 199/419 of the total National Park service Sites. I might be able to finish visiting all 61 parks this year as the remaining parks I have yet to visit are all pretty easy to get to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #everythingeverywhere #findyourpark #nps #maine #acadia #mainething #visitmaine

¡Hola from the Trujillo, Spain! ⠀ I’ve spent the last week exploring the highlights of the Extremadura region of Spain. This is a region which is rich in history going back to Celtic and Roman times, and is one of the most unexplored regions of Spain by foreign tourists. ⠀ My travels have taken me to the village of Guadeloupe, which I saw the historic Monastery of Santa Maria, the town of Cáceres, where I explored the Moorish and Renaissance architecture of the city, and Merida, with its incredible Roman ruins. ⠀ I’ll be posting more from each town over the next few weeks as well as posting more in-depth articles about each on the website. As interesting as each town in individually, they are even more interesting when you see them in the historical context of the rest of the Iberian Peninsula. The Islamic influences are similar to what I’ve seen in Grenada and Cordoba. The Roman artifacts are part of a continuum with what I’ve previously seen in Tarragona. The Renaissance architecture is in line with what I’ve seen in Madrid and other cities. ⠀ Today I’m in the historic city of Trujillo, which might have the best city center of all the cities I’ve visited. It is noteworthy as the birth place of several Spanish Conquistadors, in particular Pizarro, who is the subject of the large statue seen in the Plaza Mayor (shown in photo). ⠀ Tomorrow I’m off to Madrid by way of the Mercury mine in Almaden, which, not surprisingly, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (My 382nd). ⠀ #VisitSpain  #extremadura #spain #guadalupe #unesco #worldheritage #worldheritagesite
