Hi Blessed maupa, the image tag is self-closing and looks like this: <img src="path-to-file" alt="brief description of the picture">.

The alt attribute is recommended for several reasons:

  1. In the event the image cannot be located, the description between the alt attribute will appear
  2. Read by assistive technology to describe the img for visually impaired users

So using your file path above, the image tag should look something like this:
<img src="images/spain.jpg" alt="brief description of the picture">

Just need to update the existing image tag and don't forget the = sign when setting the src attribute.

<!doctype>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>My trip to Spain</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <img alt="A picture of me in Spain" src="images/spain.jpg">
    Here is a picture of me in Spain last summer!
    <a>Go back to the top of the page.</a>
