He speaks Spanish fluently, is an avid reader of Spanish history and loves a good old-fashioned three-hour lunch. He has gone swimming in the coves of the Costa Brava, stomped up a mountain in the Pyrenees, marveled at a Moorish arch, and devoured the country's best tapas on his quest to discover more of Spain.
