Almost two years ago, I traveled to Italy with my college buddy, Michelle. We had an amazing time and promised to do it again.
Part of the reason why I’m so ready to complete my yoga teacher training is that, just a few days after my practicum, we’ll be heading to Spain, with two nights in Portugal!
To keep things simple, we decided to stick with a tour. We start out in Madrid, then travel to Coimbra, Portugal. We stop at Fatima– where the Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children in 1917. My super-Catholic mother is really excited about that part. From Fatima, we move on to Lisbon, then on to Seville, and we end up back in Madrid for the last two nights of the tour. I was disappointed that we wouldn’t get to see Barcelona, but that just means I have an excuse to go back to Spain.
This trip has been in the works for several months, so it’s no surprise that I am truly looking forward to it. While I get busy studying for my final and the practicum, I’ll be dreaming of strolling along the Plaza de Espana in Seville (pictured above), ir a tapear en Madrid, and eating buttered cod in Lisboa.
I need to start brushing up on my Spanish.
