In airport now! Waiting for my flight to Dallas then SFO! I partially wish I could have just paid a little extra to connect in JFK. Getting a burger from shake shack would have been totally worth it.
Spain dragged then flew by and I can tell this is one of those vacations I’ll probably forget in a day’s time and won’t be able to believe that I really spent ten days in Spain.
My tummy has a little delicious croissant in it from la mallorquina, a place my mom loved and we went to for times in the few days we were in Madrid.
You can stand by a counter and eat pastries while drinking coffee.
Since every day was gogogo and I never really had time to just think and be alone (except yesterday when I forced myself to go out into the streets at 1am and returned 230am) I feel like I just want a day where I sit and think about things. Or just sit and read at philz. It just dawned on me though, I don’t have my GT laptop anymore and my personal laptop is so old it can’t handle going into the outdoors. Battery life is nil. Is it time to buy a new computer?!
I can’t believe it’s almost thanksgiving. Spain then new job then home then more job then Christmas break?! Life is too cray.
Thoughts on Spain, I think it would have been a completely different experience with other people or if I had gone alone. I kind of wish I could just go on a vacation alone again. I just want to do Couchsurfing again, or do the live in a city alone thing.
Somehow even though my salary has jumped since quitting, I feel so poor!
More thoughts on Spain: Madrid wasn’t what I expected and I’m not in love with the city though maybe it’s the kind of place you live in for a long time and not be a tourist in. Barcelona was fun, three days was enough for touring but four can work too. La Alhambra is worth going to Granada, though not more than for two nights. Seville is a place you could stay a long time and just become a resident there, otherwise for touring, two nights is enough. Avila was interesting for a small half day trip, and a lot of people highly recommended Segovia though I didn’t have the time and all of the places were essentially the same kind of things we saw in Seville (though obviously with different architectural styles) and there are only so many days you can look at old historical palaces.
Things I look forward to returning to include being able to blend my smoothies which I’m going to commence immediately and commit to doing every morning. Chia seed pudding for lunches since my face has become so round from endless bread consumption. Now that I’m not an auditor it seems like I need to learn how to cook… terrifying!
Then again in four days I’ll be back in socal and will probably be hitting up all my faves which primarily consist of burgers, Asian, and Mexican, so… this healthy living thing is probably a tad ambitious.
