Hello Blog, It’s Been a While…

Hola! I didn’t realized until I logged on today just how long it has been since I’ve blogged an adventure! Turns out when I travel with people or to visit people I am not very good at keeping up… This year I am heading back out for a solo adventure so I thought I’d ease back into the blogging with a preview of my Thanksgiving travel.

Delta had a fare sale and I had global upgrades so I decided to go to Spain! My friend Courtney spent a few weeks in Spain last summer and she reviewed my plans and made a few recommendations!

My trip begins in Barcelona

On my first day I will take it easy and stroll around the city and through a market. I don’t believe in jet lag but I also don’t speak Catalan so why not cram most of the fun into the second day? On the second day I plan to see as much of Barcelona as I can squeeze in! I’m most excited to see the Sagrada Familia and the Flamenco show, but Courtney made it sound like La Boqueria is Insta heaven so I’m looking forward to that as well.

The second part of my visit is on the coast and in Madrid

I thought it might be fun to take a train down the coast and see more of the countryside. I’ll ride down to Alicante and spend a night on the coast before I head over to Madrid. When I get there I plan to visit the Christmas market and check out some churches and museums.

The final leg of my journey is back in Barcelona. I’m taking a Paella making class, touring another Christmas market, and hopefully visiting Park Guell

To prepare for my journey, I’m trying to refresh my high school Spanish and reading about the history of Spain. So if you need me in the next few weeks, I’ll be curled up on my couch with my copies of Spanish for Dummies and Spain: A History. Hasta Pronto!
