I have not checked my blog in like … forever. It’s been such a couple of really intense weeks, as my days off get closer and closer. I’ve done a thousand and one experiments, left things ready for my coming back and now, I’m so very close it’s surreal. The boss’s excitement is still noticeable and I’m so very happy for that.
Being so close means that I can reveal the destination. The BF and I are going to …. Spain!!!! Oh I’m so very excited. I’ve visited a couple of European countries and I can definitely see myself visiting Spain. We are keeping a somewhat open schedule, and will get to spend a few days at the capital, Madrid. We’re thiking about going to Seville, Cuenca and Toledo, but we’ll see. I’d personally love to go to Granada, but it may be too costly and farther than we want to go (or have time to go). When I’m not doing research on my project I’m doing research on Spain and Madrid. And I’ve also found a few guides for Madrid and surrounding areas, like here and here. I can’t wait to get there. For a few months now I’ve been saving money and exchanging whatever I can into Euros. I’ve been carefully planning outfits, and covering all the bases so that it is an enjoyable experience. I know some spanish, thus I hope we can navigate our way through the country. I’m thinking we’ll mostly stay within the centre and south of Spain. And we also know it’s going to be super, super hot. Therefore I’m taking a bunch of shorts, a dress or two, comfy shoes and a bottle of water so I stay hydrated.
We leave in a few days and will be there until mid-July. I certainly won’t be able to update from there, but I hope to have my own guide (photos included!) or at least an entry or two about what we did and how we spent our vacation.
More to come in mid-July! Au revoir. Adios!
