When we arrived the sunset was beginning to paint the pastel buildings in warmer tones and  illuminate the tall towers of the cathedral near our hotel; Flowers decorated street level window boxes, restaurant table tops and almost every balcony we saw. Within a few minutes of being in town I was a little disappointed we hadn’t blocked out more time to spend in this charming city, but totally grateful that I got to see it at all.

As the sun sunk behind the hills that framed the town we indulged in a multi-course meal of Sopa de Ajo (castillian garlic soup), Pork Tenderloin, and Quesa Fresca with honey. (Don’t worry, there was wine).  We reluctantly rose with the sun the next morning and made our way towards Bilbao.

Reliving this Spain trip has been almost as satisfying as the trip itself, but I couldn’t go another week without making a playlist. As it’s the beginning of a new month I give you the June Playlist. Enjoy:

Speak to you soon!

Two Weeks Until Takeoff

Two Weeks Until Takeoff

 

I’m certain a trip never seems further away than it does as you inch closer and closer to the departure date. The preparations have started, as premature as that may sound. I’ve been scoping out markets, Instagram hunting for must-see cafes and boutiques and doing my best to reconcile my  relationship with the Spanish speaking skills I took for granted in high school. (So far I have a lot of confidence in never forgetting words like “sangria” and “tapas”…the basics, if you will).

 
If you’ve been and have suggestions, drop me a comment below! I’d love your suggestions!
 

As I’m sure everyone knows by now, today is Cinco de Mayo! There could not be a more  appropriate holiday to be celebrating in the midst of this countdown. So grab your friends, a margarita (on the rocks with salt for me) and a set of fiesta speakers; here is your monday playlist:
