The past few weeks have been grounding. They've helped me realize my priorities are out of alignment. Here's me trying to get back into focus.
I tracked down a cobbler this week to get my shoes fixed. Made me feel like a real local.
I didn't know what to expect when I went to visit Toledo. Honestly, the city blew me away.
I love to walk. So now that I'm in Madrid, I'm tracking how many steps I take in a day.
I wish I knew more about art history. Exploring El Prado this weekend brought me a step closer.
Cooking octopus for dinner was more of a challenge than I thought. I think I succeeded, though!
This past week, I've been putting extra time into my Spanish. Sure wish I'd worked harder on this while I was Stateside.
People told me that Spain ran on a later schedule, but I didn't quite believe it. Looks like I'm going to have to adjust.
I love to go grocery shopping when I travel, because they're such a tourist-free zone. You get an idea of what locals eat on a daily basis. And sometimes, you walk out of the store with an octopus.
For some reason, many of us fear under-packing on trips. We don't want to leave behind something super important we might just need. Actually, overpacking is what will kill you.
