My birthday trip to Spain is almost here!!! –Cue me screaming, “YES!”– I have to say that things are a little different for this birthday Spain trip than they were for my birthday Ireland trip. For one, I’m less anxious. For my first solo trip to Ireland last year, I was freaking out a lot […]

I used to live 2 hours away from my family’s home in Texas. About once a month I’d make a trip home and since I had removed all of my clothes from my parent’s house, I had to prepare a bag of clothes for the weekend. Granted I usually only stayed 2 nights during these […]

This morning I woke, well-rested for the first time since I arrived. After running down the street to connect to WiFi (the B&B WiFi was still down), I returned to a full Irish breakfast. Patrick, the B&B owner, did an amazing job with the breakfast spread. All in all, my stay there was great. He […]
