I love to travel… It has always been an important part of my life. My family loves to travel and that passion has been passed to me. I have been lucky to travel around the world (Paris, London, Spain, Berlin, Philippines, Singapore, China, Palau, Syria among other places) These journeys have remained in my mind, coming back to me from time to time, making me smile, forcing me to remember a wonderful encapsulated time in my space, a safe place in my mind where I am happy, free and safe.
As mentioned I have been in several countries, both for personal and professional reasons, each one of those opportunities was fully embraced. I like to prepare for my travels, I like to know where I am going, I like to know which places need to be visited, the history, the food, the people, the culture. I have always joked to my husband I am frustrated travel agent, he always laughed, until the time we went to Europe. It was his first trip and we went to 12 cities in 14 days. From The Netherlands to Belgium to France to Italy, it was magical and it was perfect. It took a lot of planning and research, but 5 years later I can still see his eyes light up when he mentions the trip to friends and family. (I can give you the details of that trip if you want)
My oldest son has inherited my love for travel, at 12 years old he is full of travel ideas, places he wants to go, the food he wants to try, the different cultures, the adventure. So we are going on a trip. We are taking a Mediterranean Cruise from Barcelona. My family (husband and two sons) and my parents. We are celebrating my dad’s 70th birthday and I am excited to share this trip with my family. It would be the first time I go to Europe with my parents and that makes it special in a very sentimental way.
So we are leaving in 57 days and I am in full planning mode. I have decided to include our planning and experiences in this blog. So stay tuned as I plan and execute a Mediterranean Cruise with 4 days in Barcelona for 6, including travel tips, from packing to eating, accommodations, and tours. It will be fun and you are invited.
