Hi Jamie.

Having not taken this course I'm not sure what precisely the challenge is after.

It might be that you simply need to provide a # character as a value for the href attribute. So that's where you'd normally provide a relative path for a document to link to.

<a href="#">go back to the top of the page</a>

However in this case, all you're doing is calling the same document again right at the top.

Another method is to provide an #id attribute to the root element of the document. i.e. that is HTML or BODY.

<!doctype>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>My trip to Spain</title>
  </head>
  <body id = "top">

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

  </body>
</html>

and then calling it by it's ID in the href o name attribute.
