"Thus equipped and attended, we set out on our journey with a genuine disposition to be pleased. With such a disposition, what a country is Spain for a traveler, where the most miserable inn is as full of adventure as an enchanted castle and every meal is in itself an achievement! Let others repine at the lack of turnpike-roads and sumptuous hotels, and all the elaborate comforts of a country cultivated into tameness and the common-place, but give me the rude mountain scramble, the roving, haphazard manners that give such a true game flavour to romantic Spain!" (Washington Irving, Tales of Alhambra)
