Hola, blog readers. My family just left yesterday after a three-day stay in Barcelona followed by a twelve-day cruise. Dad learned that he does not need to pack as many clothes, and I think everyone else enjoyed the cruise as well. They did excursions in Athens and Ephesus, but we managed to find our own way to some great places. I hadn’t been out to Rome at all this contract, and we had a nice walk around the Colosseum, Forum, and Gardens. They also did some things that I haven’t been able to make my way out to visit, so I’ve got some things to see before I leave this contract.
Now I miss them already though! I think that was the first big group vacation with my dad’s family that we’ve ever taken. Is it too dramatic to say that I love traveling but hate being away? That’s definitely how I felt yesterday.
In order to make myself busy after they left, I met with a couple of friends and organized some gym times. Today I signed up for a bunch of excursions for this cruise. The first one is river rafting in Croatia. I’ll be sure to let you know how everything goes!
