My apologies to Lerner and Loewe, but if I’m going to Spain I want to limit my rain to the kind that makes the wine grapes grow.
I just got my new passport in the mail. There are many blank pages and I am considering calling in sick for the rest of the week, heading to JFK and getting on a plane. Unfortunately I was raised with a sense of responsibility and Catholic guilt (I blame my parents) so I will be at work bright and early tomorrow morning.
On the bright side, instead of ending up in a youth hostel with backpacking college kids who don’t shower (yes, that is supposed to be judgmental) I can now plan a real vacation and have a great tip from UrbanDaddy about a train tour of Spain in the Cantabrian Mountains from El Expreso de la Robla. European train travel, nightlife at every stop, and local food and wine sounds relaxing to me. Those of you who know me well are thinking “E, you are Cinderella. Yummy food, a bottle of wine and the lull of the train, we’re betting on you being in bed by 11 every night. You won’t be seeing any nightlife.” I will if hot men with accents are available to chat with.
Of course this trip is only going to take up a page of passport at most. Would love some inspiration from for other types od trips I should take to fill my passport.
