If you've ever been interested in visiting the Alhambra, you should know that Washington Irving doesn't do it justice.
I tracked down a cobbler this week to get my shoes fixed. Made me feel like a real local.
Not every day goes perfectly. And when it doesn't, you have to start focusing on how to make the best of where you are, and set yourself up for doing better tomorrow.
I didn't know what to expect when I went to visit Toledo. Honestly, the city blew me away.
Some days I find it hard to get going, and I dismiss all the small things that hold me back. Those problems are real, but they don't mean I'm helpless.
