Day 94: Adios, Espana.
In some ways September felt like our fastest month so far, and yet our weekend in Mallorca feels like worlds away.
Definitely our most urban experience, Barcelona offered all the costs and benefits of city life. We loved the activity, the constant buzz of energy in our neighborhood, the plentiful food choices, and using the Metro. All those same things, though, required that we become used to noisy nights, tight living quarters, and people all around you, all the time! So much good though.
Some ways we grew/things we learned in Barcelona:
- Happy Hour is our Favorite Hour, whether a drink at home or tapas out, it's such a good way for us to separate work from non-work time.
- Slow Travel is our Favorite Travel, having a month or so in one place really allows us flexibility, not stressing too much over plans, but knowing we have time to enjoy it all.
- Community can look a lot of different ways, whether with new friends at a new church, old friends through skype, or strangers at a cooking class, it's all encouraging.
- Budgeting and Communication are so important, this trip did not and does not happen spontaneously, and our continued teamwork in the important things is so crucial.
This month I also shot my first personal project! After we fell in love with our paella cooking teacher, Marta, I decided to go back and follow her a bit more. Stay tuned for the finished product!
