Today I wanted to share my spring break with y’all. This year my family and I essentially took a self-guided tour of California! Our trip certainly was not a relax on the beach and do nothing kinda vacay but it was so neat to go to so many different places!
I will say, Sevilla was the city I was most excited about for our Spanish trek because this is where my mom lived when she studied abroad her junior year of college. Growing up, I have heard countless stories about Mom’s time in Sevilla and the various adventures she went on from there. Before leaving the states, Mom actually sent me a google maps that had her apartment and school pinned and while we were walking through the streets of Sevilla, I was able to see her street and where I was in relation to her house and school.
After two full days in Barcelona (read more here) , my friends, chaperones, teachers, and I loaded up on a bus and drove about seven hours to Madrid. By driving, we were able to see some really neat parts of Spain! I am not kidding, old castles and beautiful stone buildings that date back to hundreds of years ago, lined the main highway. Mind blowing.
Hello hello! I am back in the states after being in Spain on a school trip for the past 10 days and I just can’t wait to tell y’all all about it! While in Spain, we traveled to three different cities, starting with Barcelona, then to Madrid, and finally, Sevilla. I figured the best way to tell y’all about my time in Spain is to do a post on each city we visited, so today we are starting with Barcelona!
While in Park City this past summer, my family and I discovered a new hotspot that we immediately fell in love with (I think we went at least four times in the two weeks we were in town). So of course, we had to find a time to squeeze in a little visit when we were in PC this winter.
This summer, we decided to try out a trail at Brighton Mountain, about a 30-minute drive from Park City. Along with the Sundance hike (you can read about it here), Brighton is definitely one of my favorite hikes we have done here in Utah.
The past two weeks, I have spent phone-less and at my favorite place on this planet, Laity Lodge Youth Camp. This was only my third and last year at camp, but my family has been apart of the LLYC family for decades.
