There's not much else I can say about the magnificent Museo Salvador Dali in the tiny beachside town of Figueres on the north-eastern tip of Spain, other than if you are ever within pee-shooting distance, drop whatever else you're doing AND GO. It took me an hour each way by train from Girona, and it was worth every choo-choo, tug'a'lug, ding dong minute.

It can better be summed up by photos rather than words, and frankly, when you see them you'll see what I mean, but this crazy larrikin's lifetime of artistic achievement certainly made an impression on me...and the three hundred billion other tourists who'd trapsed miles by train, bus, plane and motor scooter to see his wacky show.

What a kooky, out there, amusing, demented joy it all was...

Hope you enjoy the tour, there is plenty more to see in his 5 storey museum so don't feel that I've ruined it for you...
