I never thought I’d be so happy for a week in Madrid to be over! Between school work for my third midterm of the semester, and paperwork for potential summer jobs and internships, I just had too much work. Add to that travel plans, and I wasn’t sure that I’d make it to the end of the week. But travel was the light at the end of the tunnel; on Friday, spring break begins.
Known in Spain as Semana Santa, or the week of Easter, I have next week off to travel, explore, and relax. My itinerary is packed with slightly overambitious planning, but I am excited to see more of Europe! With time in six cities, I know that I will be exhausted by next weekend, but I made sure to be back in Madrid by Easter to celebrate the holiday with the madrileños. Traveling sans computer, I’m taking the week off from publishing, but not from writing, so expect many stories to come from my European spring break!
Paz, Amor, Madrid
