Between my tournament in San Sebastian (which ended on the 12th) and the next one in Benidorm (which begins on the 24th), I’m taking a little tour of Spain, specifically Andalucía. With my poor picture editing tools, I have created a small map of where I’ve generally been in Spain this trip:
The first leg was from Reykjavik to Bilbao (via London) and then San Sebastian, for the tournament there. The next leg was for Andalucía, although I stopped in Madrid to relax for a few days. In Andalucía, I’ve concentrated on Sevilla and Granada. After Granada, the next tournament leg begins in Benidorm. And after that, it’s off to Banaglore, India via London.
During the summer of 2006, before I began working at Cornerstone Research, I played one tournament in Balaguer and one in Barcelona. Between those two, I spent some time sightseeing as well – 5 days in Madrid and 3 days in Barcelona. With some time in Andorra and Benasque, I’ll have covered a good chunk of the the Iberian peninsula. Maybe there is a strong tournament in Portugal?
