It’s so nice to be back in Cordoba. I had an absolutely incredible summer, which was jam-packed full with constant travel, new places, wonderful people, mouth-watering food and memories that will last a lifetime.
I visited places like Bath, Brighton, Cambridge, Oxford, Canterbury, Marseille, Bormes-les-Mimosas, Le Lavendou, Paris, Reims, St Malo, Mont Saint Michel, Rennes, Caen, Bayeux, the D-Day Landing beaches, Lyon, Toulouse, Oviedo, Santander, Covadonga, Castro Urdiales, San Sebastian, Pamplona, and Bilbao.
But for all the jet-setting, train hopping, hostel-going and people-meeting I did, there’s nothing that quite beats being in your own bed again with the freedom to shower when you want. Not to mention cook your own food.
I have my sister with me here in Cordoba until Thursday and I have been trying to make the most of every waking minute with her before she too takes off on a tour of Europe and then flies home to New Zealand. *Insert sad face here.*
I wholeheartedly apologise for my lack of online presence recently – I have been away seeing the world on a shoestring budget. This is another way of saying, a) internet hasn’t always been easy to come by (gone are the days where I worked for a telco and had my phone and internet all taken care of!) and b) with the need to weigh-up time spent on the computer versus getting out amongst it and seeing things, this has taken a bit of a back-seat. I really haven’t been able to keep on top of things.
Now I am left with an overwhelming feeling to blog and get you all up-to-speed. But aaah! Where to begin? I am so far behind! I ask you to please bear with me, this week has been all about sister-time and getting back into the rhythm of work but I will get there.
In the meantime, I want to just say thanks to all the fun and inspiring people I met along my journey this summer. You really made it. And to all those I am so pleased to see back here, hello!
