Comments03/10/2016 #23 James O'ConnellOK so looks like I'm going back to spain, Madrid!
My time there earlier in year has impressed on me so much. I loved everything, enjoyed awesome food-steak that takes 2nd in my top 5 of all time, 3rd spot is also taken by a steak in Madrid from the eatery next Reina Sofia.
I also loved the transport, taxi guys were awesome bar one & the trains ..brilliant! I went from Madrid to Valencia & back, smooth. Valencia was cool but my highlight was definitely Madrid.
Sorry for waffling on..love it, decided earlier last month to learn Spanish. Bebee has inspired this & nos given even more reason to.
It's all good & can't wait to hit Madrid speaking the lingo & catching a picture at beBee (` ' ,)03/10/2016 #17 Lisa GallagherSpain is definitely a place to visit.

Close03/10/2016 #16 Lisa Gallagher#1 A BIG THANK YOU @Javier beBee! I actually took notes while watching the videos. What an awesome tour you gave of Spain, Spain's history etc.. Barcelona, wow- The Magic Fountain is stunning, the market looks so appealing, Amazed at the Gothic Quarter, Architecture is stunning! I'm already sold on Spain for their Tapas and wine ;-) It sure does not seem like it's been 20 years since the Olympics at the Olympic Arena- amazing to see how large and beautiful it is. Ubeda, Spain and olives- I might eat too many haha Mmmm! I loved seeing the 12th century buildings on to the future. Many rivers and Mountains.. not to mention the Coast, I could get lost in Spain (in a good way). And it only takes 1 hour by plane to get around Spain, Wow!!! So much one could see and do in a week (I'd prefer 2 weeks) to take it all in and chill with others too :)) Visiting Spain just moved to the TOP of my bucket list- I wish I could leave now hehe. Thank you again for posting this and honored you dedicated it to me!! I will share away.

- Producer11/06/2016The Tales of Juan Blanco - The BeginningBefore Juan Blanco, there was only John WhiteThe year was 1993, and I was 17. I was on my way to Spain for the first time as an exchange student in a summer program to the north of Spain. There were 20 other American teenagers going. We lived with...
Comments03/10/2016 #42 Ken BoddieThese "I remember the day" gems are the posts that I find most interesting, John. Thanks for opening the door on Juan Blanco and letting your fellow bees see your persona at least partly unveiled. So when are you going back to Spain? As one who has 27 years on you, may I caution you to take care that "one day soon" doesn't become "wish I had when I could have" or "too late now"! 🤗07/08/2016 #39 Lisa GallagherGlad I found this on twitter @John White, MBA (Juan). Okay, now I understand how you got your name.. so cool! What an experience. I would have been scared 'shirtless,' no- not literally shirtless LOL! So, I think it's awesome that you went against your teenage judgment and did it! Your host family sounds like they were really awesome. I bet that Tortilla soup was the best! Do you still remember your Spanish fairly well? I only know a few words in Spanish. It's events like this that can shape our life experiences and broaden our mindset! Thanks for sharing.04/08/2016 #38 Susan RooksGracias, Juan Blanco (@John White, MBA)! What a wonderful story, and one that I lived from the other side, having had six exchange students over several years back in the '80s.
What I missed, of course, was the narrative of someone from America who was an exchange student! And your story is delightful, full of fun details, and a joy to read.
Thanks so much!15/06/2016 #32 Ana María Fernández SorianoI find it is a charming buzz , @John White, MBA. :) Like @NO one, I am sure that beBee bees will be with open arms for your next visit. If your life changed forever after that first visit to Spain, maybe your life will change again and become even better when you repeat the visit. ;)15/06/2016 #30 Andrew BooksJuan Blanco...such a great alias for so many purposes. Except I get this image of some dude in shorts, sunglasses, drinking a beer and cavorting around the pool...maybe even doing the limbo or calypso. Not to far off the mark, I guess...:)
Best to you, @John White, MBA. Always good to read your material.15/06/2016 #27 Flavia Toro Rodriguez#25 If he was from Santander, I think that the correct spelling could be "Lecubarri", because is a little common last name in the north of Spain. In spanish there are very few words with double "c", and usually they are followed by "ión", like in "accíón", "traducción", etc15/06/2016 #25 Aaron SkogenGreat post @John White, MBA! My freshman year in college (1992) was spent rooming with a young man from Santander, Eduardo Leccubari (last name spelling questionable). I have been trying to find him for the few years, without any luck. My bride was born in Madrid, Spanish tortilla is a staple in our house and paella was adopted as our customary holiday dish.
Travel is enlightenment. I'm glad you found it at such a young age!
Gran historia Juan Blanco!
