The most disappointing things about Spain…

In order of worst to just meh.

1. Pumpkin spice frappacinos aren’t available at Starbucks.
2. Dominos here doesn’t have a gluten free option.
3. I got bedbugs in Granada.

Now, you might of read this and thought, surely the bedbugs are the worst, and probably if you’d asked me 5 days ago when I was ready to tear my skin off to stop the itching, I would have agreed. But today, when I’m a bit hungover and really craving some pizza that isn’t going to make me feel even worse than the hangover and my fav fall treat of a pumpkin spice frapp, I’d say those other two are way more important.

Of course, what this list really serves to do is show how awesome Spain is! Bedbugs are an occasional, unavoidable part of long term travel and I certainly don’t hold it against Granada that I got them in that lovely city. As for the frapp and pizza, I really don’t need the empty calories and mcdonalds burger with gluten free bun was nearly as good a hangover remedy.

Tomorrow I head to Portugal (woot!) and hopefully on the 4 hour bus I’ll have time to edit a few more video blogs for y’all! I’m super behind on that (by several weeks) but it’s hard to find a balance between living in the moment and keeping the blog up to date. Till next time, cheers!

Catch up…

Hey y’all, I just wanted to say sorry for not keeping up with my blog very well the past few weeks. It’s been a crazy time, but I feel like I’ve found my travel groove again.  The last few days I’ve been in Córdoba, Spain and, as you may have noticed, the posts have started flowing again.  This is in part due to the fact that I have a good internet connection here in the Funky Córdoba Hostel and that the most stressful part of my trip is behind me (2 weeks with my parents was fun but it always makes me nervous when we do things I suggest), but it’s also because I’m just really digging the vibe of this awesome little city. I find it relaxing enough that I’m not getting in my own way, yet stimulating enough that I haven’t slipped into lazy Kat mode where I just want to sit around doing nothing. There’s a great creative energy here that makes it impossible for me to NOT want to edit the videos that have been piling up on my camera roll.  In fact, I’ve been so productive (finished editing about 8 video blogs with another 3 in the works) that I extended my stay here by an extra 2 days, and might extend it even more if I can keep my work mode mojo flowing.

With that, I think I’ll get back to work, but do me a favor and leave me some comments! I’d love to hear from anyone who’s reading this!  Maybe about your fav place in Spain or where you are right now, or the next place YOU want to go, or he’ll, even why you think your pet toad is the bee’s knees! I look forward to hearing from you.

Till next time, keep calm and travel on
