Why I write…

You know those little kids that when you ask them, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” they stand there and list off about 15 different things, ranging from astronaut to CPA?

Ok, maybe a kid wouldn’t say “CPA” but you get my gist… They want to be anything and everything.

Well, I was one of those kids. I wanted to be a doctor, a vet, a teacher, a secretary (yes, that was actually on my list), a dolphin trainer, and the list goes on… and on… and on…

In the mean time… (Photo Post)

I’m still busy working on my Kraków (Chunk 2- Food!) post and I hope to have it up by tomorrow afternoon. (In case you missed it, here’s a link to my first post about Kraków)

In the mean time, I figured I’d go ahead and make another, quick, photo post!

As I contemplate what posts to write in the future, I look back at my pictures for inspiration. These are some that I’m not sure will ever make it into a post of their own.  Continue reading

Five (non-political) Things Spaniards Say about Americans

It’s been rough lately, hasn’t it? It seems like it’s virtually impossible to turn on the TV or computer and NOT be bombarded with a constant influx of “politics-talk.”

I get it, I really do. This is an important time—not just for the US but for the entire world. It’s good that we have these outlets to discuss, debate, and exchange ideas. The sad thing is, though, that it’s rarely just that. More often than not it’s arguing, insulting, and just down-right mean, personal attacks.

So, just to change things up a bit, I’ve decided to write a post about America and Americans that is not politically charged.

Gasp! Can people still do that?

Why, yes, I think we can! Continue reading

Photo Post!

In preparation for my upcoming group of posts about our recent trip to Poland, I wanted to go ahead and share some of my pictures from the trip.

It’ll probably be a few days before I’m able to finish my first post about Kraków, but I simply can’t contain myself. This trip was probably my favorite of all the trips I’ve taken with my hubby.

And, mind you, it’s rivaling our Christmas honeymoon to Prague, Vienna, and Budapest… So, that’s saying something.  Continue reading

Balance… It’s all about balance

One thing I’ve struggled with recently is balance. Primarily, with balancing my time.

I’ve been working as a freelance writer. It’s been great. It’s been fun and it’s been extremely rewarding.

One of the drawbacks of this has been, for me, that my time and energy have been going completely towards my projects. I haven’ been able to focus so much on my own work–my own dream.

I haven’ been able to blog. I haven’t even been able to finish my own stories.

It’s frustrating. It’s extremely frustrating. Continue reading

Not travel, but still pretty cool…

So, this blog is my travel blog… I know that. And I do have TONS of fun, travel related (and Spain related) things to share. But, I’ve been pretty absent lately–sorry!

The reason for that is simple. In my About Me page, I mentioned the other blog I share with my mom. It’s a fun adventure that we’re sharing into the world of writing and publishing. 

So, even though I have lots of posts to share about my adventures through Spain, I’ve been very busy lately working on something related to that other side of my blogging life.

All of that being said, if you’re interested in what crazy things my mom and I have been working on lately, check out our most recent post HERE. It gives a little information about the book (really collection of short stories) we’re busy with at the moment.

And I promise, once all of that is done, I will be back to continue talking about this wonderful country that I’ve fallen completely in love with.
