Where oh where have I been? Where am I know? Where am I going? It’s been quite a while since I last got around to blogging, and to answer those questions… Well, even I hardly know.
Well first here’s a broad overview of my trip through Spain. I’m not going to get into to much of the specifics because hopefully when I have more time I’ll return through each location with some more in depth writing and photos.
I traveled alone for the first time in Europe… First time out of Basque Country. It went all without a hitch, I found my hostels, train/bus stations, and airports, without missing a departure. Travelling alone is an experience that I enjoyed, but I think now I would rather travel with someone. My best times were when I met friends along my travels, or made friends in hostels. Though travelling alone during Christmas kind of makes one feel all the more lonely.
First stop, Barcelona!
There is a nice little taster! Right now I’m in my Apartment in Lasarte just outside of San Sebastian. Since I’ve been back I’ve been busy planning more travels, having New Years eve with friends, and getting the apartment ready for new occupiers.
Tomorrow my long time friend Aren from Ann Arbor, MI is coming into San Sebastian. After a day or two here we will depart into the wilds of France and beyond! Hopefully finish up in Italy and be back in San Sebastian by the 23rd of January. I fly back to Portland on the 25th of January.
Phew, travelling is a lot of work…. More to come!
