Traveling Lessons While Exploring, Dreaming and Discovering Abroad…

After spending a magical weekend in San Sebastian this current week being back to school in Valladolid has been sort of a grind.

Perro, like life anywhere in the world and especially in foreign parts, with every down comes an unimaginable up and I would not take this experience away for anything. With that being said, I thought I would quickly share just a few of the many important lessons travel (&& Spanish culture) has taught me, thus far—

//The world is both mind boggling large and coincidentally small.

//People are put into your lives at certain times for a reason.

//Traveling is not nearly as chic as it sounds…;)—but definitely worth it.

//Things have a way of working out.

//Getting lost is the best way to learn.

//Siesta is good for your health !

//Family is absolutely everything.
There have definitely been times of homesickness, which I expected just being completely solo, ultra introverted (most of the time) and a  total homebody…but then I stumble upon something like this and have an “I’m in Spain right now” moment of gratitude…

This park runs along Rio Pisuerga (the “beach” of Valladolid) and goes for miles and miles. It has been a favorite find close to mi casa and anytime of day is full of Spaniards.

My only advice is that if you ever have the opportunity to travel—just do it . I had heard it all before, but truly, there is nothing like it.
