After I changed my status to “OOO,” my two weeks of vacation felt great already. Nothing crazy going on at work yet, but to have those hours back in my day was going to feel so nice! Sadly, we were not off to a great start… I had to haul my luggage along down 5 … More Amalfi Views
So, remember when I went through all the trouble to try to do my WFH program from Italy? Well, I managed to squeeze a week in one of my favorite cities while I worked, Roma. I’ve only been to Rome once before. This was about 5 years ago, when I traveled to Europe for the … More Why Not Take a Crazy Chance?
After spending my second weekend in Barcelona celebrating a nephew’s birthday, I spent a week working through some projects at work while still exploring some new streets of the city. When I first wrote about this trip I had mentioned my love for Paella, and I figured I could squeeze a 2-3 hour course before … More A Holiday in Valencia
Since my stay in Spain was a month long, I decided to take advantage of the weekends and explore towns I haven’t been to before. I thought about renting a car, but unfortunately rules on the road have become more strict internationally, and now I needed an international driving permit if I wanted to drive … More Dalí’s Cadaqués
So the original plan was to enjoy a festival in Barcelona, and then wander through Italy for about two weeks. By some form of fate, or coincidental timing, my company started offering a work from home opportunity, but that it would be “allowed” anywhere around the world. So I figured, why not make my Italy … More Summer in Spain

We didn’t think that this would have been a place we wanted to visit at first, but after reflecting on our last trip, we decided to visit places that wouldn’t have been top of mind. I didn’t’ have any expectations from Amsterdam. I went with the … More A little getaway in Amsterdam
Last stop on our Spanish adventure was the beautiful Granada. Sophia and I took a 2.5-hour bus ride directly from Cordoba. We dozed off every now and then because we tried to see all the hills and fields we passed on our way to our destination. Sadly, it was a gloomy day and just when … More Two Days in Granada
When we arrived in Cordoba, we had 30 minutes of travel time to get to our AirBnB if we walked. Since we were tired, we took a cab. Not expensive and only a 10-minute ride! Our host was very nice and his apartment was rustic and small. It was a good setting for this city. … More Cordoba Treasure
Although we were a little off balance with time zones, Sophia and I managed to get up on time to run to our first train ride on this trip. I figured a two-hour train ride wouldn’t hurt us. A scenic view would be nice as we’re traveling in the southern part of Spain! Unfortunately, our … More One Day in Sevilla.
